The Holy Trinity         Jun 11, 2017

Welcome in the name of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. If you are visiting, we are glad that you are here and kindly ask that you sign our guest book at the sanctuary doors. If you would like to become a member please speak to the Pastor. In case of illness, the Pastor should be informed. He will always be glad to speak with those who are confronted with problems of a spiritual nature. The time before worship is a quiet time for prayer and meditation to prepare for worship. Please see the inside cover of the hymnal for prayers and page 329f to prepare for Holy Communion. Communicant members are asked to fill out a communion card found in the pew racks and place it in the offering plates.

Collect of the Day

Almighty and everlasting God, You have given us grace to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity by the confession of a true faith and to worship the Unity in the power of the Divine Majesty. Keep us steadfast in this faith and defend us from all adversities; for You, O Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, live and reign, one God, now and forever.

Introit (sung responsively by half-verse)

Blessed be the Holy Trinity and the undivided | Unity.*

          Let us give glory to him because he has shown

     his mer-| cy to us.    

 

     I have set the LORD always be-| fore me;*

    because he is at my right hand, I shall not be | shaken.

                                                                                                                                                                                 

     Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being re-| joices;*

                             my flesh also | dwells secure.    

 

     For you will not abandon my soul | to Sheol,*

          or let your holy one see cor- | ruption.

 

     You make known to me the | path of life;*

          in your presence there is fullness of joy;

          at your right hand are pleasures for- | evermore.

 

            Glory be to the Father and | to the Son

                   and to the Holy | Spirit;

 

            as it was in the be- | ginning,

                   is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

 

 Blessed be the Holy Trinity and the undivided | Unity.*

     Let us give glory to him because he has shown

     his mer-| cy to us.

Holy Communion:

Since the Lord’s Supper gives the forgiveness of sins in the body and blood of Christ to all who believe the words “given and shed” and is also a celebration of oneness in faith, we ask that only those who have professed such faith publicly in a Lutheran Church-Canada (or Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) congregation come to the Lord’s Altar.  Everyone intending to commune for the first time is kindly asked to speak with the Pastor prior to the service.
