and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

opens our eyes, renews our faith, and forgives our sins. We are
truly blessed!

Hear our prayer, O Lord, Hear our prayer, O Lord; Incline Thine ear to
us and grant us Thy peace. Amen.
*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in
Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy
Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose
again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right
hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge
the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic
church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the
resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
