Confession of Sin

O Lord, do not rebuke us in Your wrath, nor chasten us in Your hot displeasure! For Your arrows pierce us deeply, and Your hand presses us down. There is no soundness in our flesh because of Your anger, nor is there any health in our bones because of our sin. For our iniquities have gone over our heads; like a heavy burden they are too heavy for us. Lord, all our desire is before You; and our sighing is not hidden from You. For we will declare our iniquity, we will be in anguish over our sin. Do not forsake us, O Lord; O our God, be not far from us! Make haste to help us, O Lord, our salvation! (Psalm 38:1-4,9,18,21-22)                              

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.
