For The Procession: Hymn 290
Come, ye thankful people, come

1. Come, ye thankful people, come,
raise the song of harvest home;
all is safely gathered in,
ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
for our wants to be supplied;
come to God’s own temple, come,
raise the song of harvest home.

2. All the world is God’s own field,
fruit unto his praise to yield;
wheat and tares together sown,
unto joy or sorrow grown;
first the blade, and then the ear,
then the full corn shall appear;
grant, O harvest Lord, that we
wholesome grain and pure may be.

3. For the Lord our God shall come,
and shall take his harvest home;
from his field shall in that day
all offenses purge away;
give his angels charge at last
in the fire the tares to cast,
but the fruitful ears to store
in the garner evermore.

4. Even so, Lord, quickly come,
to thy final harvest home;
gather thou thy people in,
free from sorrow, free from sin;
there, forever purified,
in thy presence to abide;
come, with all thine angels come,
raise the glorious harvest home.

The Word of God

Opening Acclamation
Prayer Book 355

The people standing, the Celebrant says

Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

People And blessed be his kingdom, now and for ever.  Amen.


Celebrant:  Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid:  Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Hymn of Praise S280                                                               

Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father

we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father; receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father. Amen.


The Collect of the Day:

The Celebrant says to the people

The Lord be with you.

People And also with you.

Celebrant Let us pray.

O God, because without you we are not able to please you, mercifully grant that your Holy
Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The First Lesson

Exodus 32:7-14
The Lord said to Moses, “Go down at once! Your people, whom you brought up out of
the land of Egypt, have acted perversely; they have been quick to turn aside from the
way that I commanded them; they have cast for themselves an image of a calf, and
have worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, `These are your gods, O Israel, who
brought you up out of the land of Egypt!’” The Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this
people, how stiff-necked they are. Now let me alone, so that my wrath may burn hot
against them and I may consume them; and of you I will make a great nation.”
But Moses implored the Lord his God, and said, “O Lord, why does your wrath burn hot
against your people, whom you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and
with a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, `It was with evil intent that he
brought them out to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of
the earth’? Turn from your fierce wrath; change your mind and do not bring disaster on
your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, how you swore to
them by your own self, saying to them, `I will multiply your descendants like the stars
of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your descendants, and
they shall inherit it forever.’” And the Lord changed his mind about the disaster that he
planned to bring on his people.

The Psalm

Psalm 51:1-11
1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your loving-kindness; *
in your great compassion blot out my offenses.
2 Wash me through and through from my wickedness *
and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions, *
and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against you only have I sinned *
and done what is evil in your sight.
5 And so you are justified when you speak *
and upright in your judgment.
6 Indeed, I have been wicked from my birth, *
a sinner from my mother’s womb.
7 For behold, you look for truth deep within me, *
and will make me understand wisdom secretly.
8 Purge me from my sin, and I shall be pure; *
wash me, and I shall be clean indeed.
9 Make me hear of joy and gladness, *
that the body you have broken may rejoice.
10 Hide your face from my sins *
and blot out all my iniquities.
11 Create in me a clean heart, O God, *
and renew a right spirit within me.

The Epistle

1 Timothy 1:12-17
I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because he judged
me faithful and appointed me to his service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer,
a persecutor, and a man of violence. But I received mercy because I had acted
ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and
love that are in Christ Jesus. The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners– of whom I am the foremost. But for
that very reason I received mercy, so that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might
display the utmost patience, making me an example to those who would come to
believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God,
be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Sequence Hymn: 460  
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!

1 Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
his the scepter, his the throne;
Alleluia! his the triumph,
his the victory alone;
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flood;
Jesus out of every nation
hath redeemed us by his blood.

2 Alleluia! not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! he is near us,
faith believes, nor questions how:
though the cloud from sight received him,
when the forty days were o’er,
shall our hearts forget his promise,
“I am with you evermore”?

3 Alleluia! Bread of Heaven,
thou on earth our food, our stay!
Alleluia! here the sinful
flee to thee from day to day:
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
earth’s Redeemer, plead for me,
where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.

4 Alleluia! King eternal,
thee the Lord of lords we own:
Alleluia! born of Mary,
earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne:
thou within the veil hast entered,
robed in flesh, our great High Priest:
thou on earth both Priest and Victim
in the eucharistic feast.

5 Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
his the scepter his the throne;
Alleluia! his the triumph,
his the victory alone;
Hark! the songs of holy Zion
thunder like a mighty flood;
Jesus out of every nation
hath redeemed us by his blood.

The Holy Gospel   

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ According to Luke

People Glory to you, Lord Christ

Luke 15:1-10
All the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to Jesus. And the
Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, “This fellow welcomes sinners
and eats with them.”
So he told them this parable: “Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing
one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that
is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices.
And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to
them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you,
there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine
righteous persons who need no repentance.
“Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp,
sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? When she has found it, she
calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the
coin that I had lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God
over one sinner who repents.

After the Gospel, the Reader says
The Gospel of the Lord.

People Praise to you, Lord Christ.


The Sermon
The Rev. Patrick Sanders

The Nicene Creed
Prayer Book 358

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven 

and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.


We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, 

eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.  

Through him all things were made. For us and for our 

salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy 

Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made 

man.  For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he 

suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again

in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.


We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who

proceeds from the Father and the Son.  With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.  He has spoken through the Prophets.  We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.  We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.  We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  Amen.


The Prayers of the People                                                                

The Leader and the People pray responsively

Presider: Christ Jesus our Lord has strengthened us, judged us faithful and appointed us to God’s service despite our failures; let us gratefully pray for the grace of God, as we say: Create in
us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Litanist: Gracious God, you have rescued your Church from bondage and guided us through the wilderness to the altar of Christ Jesus: Grant us the spirit of your loving-kindness, that all of us
sinners and outcasts may embrace our welcome to your banquet and rejoice with heaven at the inclusion of everyone into the perfect love of Jesus. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Eternal One, look upon the proud and arrogant, the violent and destructive, and let not your wrath burn hot against us: Do not consume us in your disappointment, but make of us a great nation, that we may share your universal work of liberation and reconciliation. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Loving God, seek thoroughly into all the corners of the earth and into each home and heart, that everyone who is lost may be found, the outcast welcomed, and the proud humbled. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Compassionate One, visit our community with your judgment and mercy to deliver us from our sin and inspire us to serve you with perseverance and discipline. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

There is joy in heaven whenever any human being is restored: Hear our prayers for those who are wandering or wounded or ill, especially those we now mention aloud or in the silence of our
hearts (pause); all those serving our country at home and abroad; and those on our prayer list. Christ’s
table is a generous and happy one. We bring to God our gratefulness and thanks, especially for those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries Paige, Jordan, Steven, Ryan, Carl, Norman, Marvin & Crama, Bill & Ruthie, Mark & Donna. Carry all who have died into your eternal banquet, and
hear us as we remember those we now mention aloud or in the silence of our hearts (pause).
Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Presider: You look for truth deep within us, and will make us understand wisdom secretly, O God: Curb our pride that we may share in the Spirit’s work of love and compassion for the sinful and
the lost, that all may join now and always in the joyful celebration of Christ, the Sovereign eternal,
for you are God, immortal, invisible, to whom be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Celebrant:  Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.


Minister and people:

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.  We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.  We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.  For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your Name.  Amen.



Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life.  Amen.

The Peace

Celebrant: The Peace of the Lord be always with you.

People: And also with you.

The Minister and People greet one another in the name of the Lord.

The Holy Communion

The Great Thanksgiving

Eucharistic Prayer A
Prayer Book 361

The Lord be with you.

People And also with you.

Celebrant Lift up your hearts.

People We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People It is right to give him thanks and praise.

Celebrant It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

The Celebrant adds an additional prayer (Proper Preface) followed by

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

Sanctus S125

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts:
Heaven and earth are full of thy glory.
Glory be to thee, O Lord Most High

Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

The Celebrant continues

Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.  He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.


On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat:  This is my body, which is given for you.  Do this for the remembrance of me.” After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.  Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.”


Therefore, we proclaim the mystery of faith:


Celebrant and People say together                                                                               

Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.

The Celebrant continues

We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.  Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.


Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him.  Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.


All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ.  By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever.    Amen.



As now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,


The Lord’s Prayer
Prayer Book 364             

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.  Amen.


The Breaking of the Bread

The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread as a period of silence is kept.


Alleluia.  Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;

Therefore let us keep the feast.  Alleluia

For the Communion: Hymn 664
My shepherd will supply my need

1 My Shepherd will supply my need:
Jehovah is His Name;
in pastures fresh he makes me feed,
beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
when I forsake his ways,
and leads me, for his mercy’s sake,
in paths of truth and grace.

2 When I walk through the shades of death,
thy presence is my stay;
one word of thy supporting breath
drives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes,
doth still my table spread;
my cup with blessings overflows,
thy oil anoints my head.

3 The sure provisions of my God
attend me all my days;
O may thy house be mine abode,
and all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest,
while others go and come;
no more a stranger or a guest,
but like a child at home.

Post Communion Prayer
Prayer Book 365

Celebrant Let us pray.


Celebrant and people

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.  Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.




For The Retiring Procession: Hymn: 423
Immortal, invisible, God only wise

1 Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, thy great Name we praise.

2 Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
thy justice like mountains high soaring above
thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.

3 To all life thou givest, to both great and small;
in all life thou livest, the true life of all;
we blossom and flourish, like leaves on the tree,
then wither and perish; but nought changeth thee.

4 Thou reignest in glory, thou rulest in light,
thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;
all laud we would render: O help us to see
’tis only the splendor of light hideth thee.



Children: Let us bless the Lord. ALLELUIA ! ALLELUIA !
People: Thanks be to God.
Alleluia ! Alleluia !
