Confession of Sin

Eternal and Almighty Father, we acknowledge and confess before Your holy majesty, that we are poor sinners;  conceived and born in guilt and in corruption, prone to evil, unable of ourselves to do any good;  who, because of our depravity, transgress without end Your holy commandments.  Therefore we have drawn upon ourselves, by Your just sentence, condemnation and death.  But, O Lord, with heartfelt sorrow we repent and deplore our offenses!  We condemn ourselves and our evil ways, with true penitence beseeching that Your grace may relieve our distress.  Be pleased then to have compassion upon us, O most gracious God, Father of all mercies, for the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.  And, in removing our guilt and our pollution, grant us the daily increase of the grace of Your Holy Spirit;  that, acknowledging from our inmost hearts our own unrighteousness, we may be touched with sorrow that shall work true repentance;  and that Your Spirit, mortifying all sin within us, may produce the fruits of holiness and righteousness well-pleasing in Your sight;  through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.                                                                                             

WLC Q. 168. What is the Lord’s Supper?
A. The Lord’s supper is a sacrament of the New Testament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine according to the appointment of Jesus Christ, his death is showed forth; and they that worthily communicate feed upon his body and blood, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace; have their union and communion with him confirmed; testify and renew their thankfulness, and engagement to God, and their mutual love and fellowship each with other, as members of the same mystical body. The inner two rings of cups are grape juice.

Sunday School Collections – Please remember, as you are able, to help your child provide for the weekly Sunday School missions collections. Just a coin or two is fine. These funds, collected over time, have always helped us give a few hundred dollars to missionaries when they come and visit as an individual “thank offering.” The Sunday School teachers make great efforts throughout the year to teach the children to pray for missions (home and foreign) as well as for our denominational work as a whole.
