· Sermon (-)

After reading the Scripture, the singers (and congregation) sing: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path (2x).

· The Apostle’s Creed (+)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell.

The third day He arose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence 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 life everlasting. Amen

· Intercessory prayer (+)

Enclosing the prayer, the congregation pray the Lord’s Prayer:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

For your is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
