First Reading  Genesis 21:8-21


The child grew, and was weaned; and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. But Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, playing with her son Isaac. So she said to Abraham, ‘Cast out
this slave woman with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inherit along with my son Isaac.’ The matter was very distressing to Abraham on account of his son. But God said to Abraham, ‘Do not be distressed because of the boy and because of your slave woman; whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for it is through Isaac that offspring shall be named after you. As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, because he is your offspring.’ So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of
water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.


When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, ‘Do not let me look on the death of the child.’ And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. And God
heard the voice of the boy; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, ‘What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid; for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. Come, lift up the boy and hold him fast with
your hand, for I will make a great nation of him.’ Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink.


God was with the boy, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

Psalm 86:1-10, 16-17


+ Bow down your ear, O L
ord, and answer me, *
for I am poor and in misery.



+ Keep watch over my life, for I am faithful; *
  save your servant who puts his trust in you.


+ Be merciful to me, O Lord, for you are my God; *
I call upon you all the day long.


 
+ Gladden the soul of your servant, *
  for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.


+ For you, O L
ord, are good and forgiving, *
  and great is your love toward all who call upon you.


 
+ Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer, *
and attend to the voice of my supplications.


+  In the time of my trouble I will call upon you, *
for you will answer me.


+ Among the gods there is none like you, O L
ord, *

  nor anything like your works.

 


+ All nations you have made will come and

worship you, O Lord,*


  and glorify your Name.


+ For you are great; you do wondrous things; *


  and you alone are God.


 
Turn to me and have mercy upon me; *

give your strength to your servant;

  and save the child of your handmaid.

 


Show me a sign of your favor,

so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; *


  because you, O L
ord,
have helped me and comforted me.

 


The Second Reading Romans 6:1b-11


What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.


For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin. For whoever has died is freed from sin. But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death he died, he died to sin, once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Silence may follow.

Then, all standing, the Deacon or a Priest reads the Gospel, first saying


The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.


People


Glory to you, Lord Christ.
 


‘A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above the master; it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher, and the slave like the master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign
those of his household!


‘So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?
Yet not one of them will fall to the ground unperceived by your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.


‘Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.


‘Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one’s foes will be members of one’s own household.  Whoever loves father or mother more than me is
not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.


After the Gospel, the Reader says
 


The Gospel of the Lord.


People

Praise to you, Lord Christ.


The Sermon

On Sundays and other Major Feasts there follows, all standing

The Nicene Creed


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
 


Creator God, you made the world and declared it to be good: the beauty of the
trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass speaks to us; the
summit of the mountains, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the waters speak
to us. But above all, our heart soars, for you speak to us in Jesus Christ. So
we say in prayer;


Creator God, teach us and show us the way.


Creator God, inspire and give strength through love to your church throughout

the world; anoint through your Holy Spirit and the grace of your Christ, all
bishops, priests, deacons and all the baptized;


Creator God, teach us and show us the way.
 


Creator God, unite the people of your world through love and dignity, to abolish
all hatred and establish a lasting peace;


Creator God, teach us and show us the way
. 


Creator God, protect and guide those who are serving in our military, police,
firefighters, EMS and health care professionals. For your children to support
these servants through peace and love;


Creator God, teach us and show us the way.
 


Creator God, be ever present with the weak and weary, sick and dying, for the
forgotten, the isolated, the homeless and the hungry. Fill our hearts with love
and to be servants to all by your Son’s example;


Creator God, teach us and show us the way.


Creator God, we remember all who have dies, (especially. . .), may they dwell in

the light of all your saints;

Creator God, teach us and show us the way.
 


Creator God, bless all the fathers in the world. Father, we ask that You guide
them to be good role models and loving to their children. We also ask that You
help them to be a father like You are. Give them grace and patience to handle
situations in a loving way.

AMEN 
 


Confession of Sin


A Confession of Sin is said here if it has not been said earlier. On occasion,
the Confession may be omitted.
 


The Deacon or Celebrant says


Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
 


Silence may be kept.
 


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.


The Bishop when present, or the Priest, stands and says
 


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

All stand.  The Celebrant says to the people


The peace of the Lord be always with you.


People

And also with you.
 


Then the Ministers and People may greet one another in the name of the Lord.

The Holy Communion

The Great Thanksgiving


Eucharistic Prayer A


The people remain standing. The Celebrant, whether bishop or priest, faces them
and sings or says


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.

Then, facing the Holy Table, the Celebrant proceeds 


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


Here a Proper Preface is sung or said on all Sundays, and on other occasions as
appointed
.

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:

Celebrant and People


Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,


heaven and earth are full of your glory.


     Hosanna in the highest.


Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.


    Hosanna in the highest.


 
The people stand or kneel.

Then 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.

At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it,or lay

a hand upon it; and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand
upon the cup and any other vessel containing wine to be consecrated.

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


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
.


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


  
People and Celebrant


Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be 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.


A period of silence is kept.


Then may be said


[Alleluia.]  Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;


Therefore let us keep the feast.


 [
Alleluia.]


Facing the people, the Celebrant says the following Invitation
 


The Gifts of God for the People of God.


and may add

Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your hearts by
  faith, with thanksgiving. 


The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds, and then immediately deliver
it to the people.

The Bread and the Cup are given to the communicants with these words


The Body of Christ, the bread of heaven. [
Amen.]


The Blood of Christ, the cup of salvation. [
Amen.] 


During the ministration of Communion, hymns, psalms, or anthems may be sung.

fter Communion, the Celebrant says

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.  


The Bishop when present, or the Priest, may bless the people.
