The Prayer of Adoration and Confession
Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.  Your will be done
         on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
         And forgive us our debts,
         as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
         but deliver us from evil;
For Yours is the kingdom, the power,
               and the glory forever.  Amen
[Take a moment to silently confess your sins and unbelief…Amen.]

§ The Confession of Faith                                    
      The Apostles’ Creed
Q: Christian, what do you believe?
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
    Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
    and born of the virgin Mary.
   He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
   the holy catholic church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting. Amen.
*The word "catholic" refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mr. Dan Boulton

§ The Doxology                                                            
   Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
         praise Him all creatures here below;
   Praise God above, Praise God above,
       ye heavenly host:
   Praise the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
         Alleluia, allelu…alleluia. Amen.                   -- Ortega
