Hymn of Invocation – Great is Thy Faithfulness



 Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God my Father

There is no shadow of turning with Thee

Thou changest not Thy compassions they fail not

As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.


Refrain: Great is Thy Faithfulness, great is They faithfulness

Morning by morning new mercies I see

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me.


Summer and winter and springtime and harvest

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.




Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth.

Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

C:  Amen.



Confession and Absolution –


P     Let us then confess our sins to God our Father.

C     Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. 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 justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.



P     Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son to die for you and for His sake forgives you all your sins. As a called and ordained servant of Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.


C:  Amen.

First Reading – Amos 6:17                                                  

 Woe to those who are at ease in Zion,

and to those who feel secure on the mountain of Samaria,

the notable men of the first of the nations,

to whom the house of Israel comes!

Pass over to Calneh, and see,

and from there go to Hamath the great;

then go down to Gath of the Philistines.

Are you better than these kingdoms?

Or is their territory greater than your territory,

O you who put far away the day of disaster

and bring near the seat of violence?

Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory

and stretch themselves out on their couches,

and eat lambs from the flock

and calves from the midst of the stall,

who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp

and like David invent for themselves instruments of music,

who drink wine in bowls

and anoint themselves with the finest oils,

but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph!

Therefore they shall now be the first of those who go into exile,

and the revelry of those who stretch themselves out shall pass away.”


P:  This is the Word of the Lord.

C:  Thanks be to God.

Epistle – James                                                                                                          

 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door. As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.


P:  This is the Word of the Lord.

C:  Thanks be to God.

Holy Gospel – Luke 16: 19-31

P:  The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the sixteenth chapter.

C:  Glory to You, O Lord.


Luke 16:19–31

[Jesus said:] “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.

And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”



[Jesus said:] “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.

P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

C:  Praise to You, O Christ.


Apostles' Creed

C:  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 Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life + everlasting. Amen.


Children’s Hymn – Brothers and Sisters in Christ (AGPS 78)


Sing Alleluia. Amen! Let your prayers and your praises ascend

Lift up your voices and sing to our Lord God, our Savior and King!

Here brought together by grace, We are gathered as friends in this place.



And Assembled as one, in the name of the Son. lifting hearts, lifting hands, celebrating as friends. And proclaiming the Lord. All our praises afford. We are brothers and sisters in Christ.


Man walked alone and in need. Without faith, hope, promise or creed. Wandering, aimlessly lost, unaware of the staggering cost, That God in his mercy would save. All His people from death and the grave.




Children’s Sermon – Janet Leet


Hymn of the Day Dear Christians One and All Rejoice (LSB 556)


 Dear Christians, one and all, rejoice,

   With exultation springing,

And with united heart and voice

   And holy rapture singing,

Proclaim the wonders God has done,

How His right arm the vict’ry won.

   What price our ransom cost Him!


Fast bound in Satan’s chains I lay;

   Death brooded darkly o’er me.

Sin was my torment night and day;

   In sin my mother bore me.

But daily deeper still I fell;

My life became a living hell,

   So firmly sin possessed me.


But God had seen my wretched state

   Before the world’s foundation,

And mindful of His mercies great,

   He planned for my salvation.

He turned to me a father’s heart;

He did not choose the easy part

   But gave His dearest treasure.

P:  The Lord be with you.

C:  And also with you.

P:  Lift up your hearts.

C:  We lift them to the Lord.

P:  Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

C:  It is right to give Him thanks and praise Him.

P: It is truly good, right, and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to You, holy Lord, almighty Father, everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who on this day overcame death and the grave and by His glorious resurrection opened to us the way of everlasting life. Therefore with angels and archangels and with all the company of heaven we laud and magnify Your glorious name, evermore praising You and saying:





Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of pow’r and might:

Heaven and earth are full of Your glory.

Hosanna, Hosanna. Hosanna in the highest.

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

Hosanna in the highest.



Prayer of Thanksgiving

P     Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross. 


Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us faithfully to eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us do in His own testament. Gather us together, we pray, from the ends of the earth to celebrate with all the faithful the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Graciously receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone, O Father, be all glory, honor, and worship, with the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

C     Amen.



The Words of Our Lord

P     Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My + body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.”

In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My + blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”



Proclamation of Christ

P     As often as we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

C     Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.


P     O Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, in giving us Your body and blood to eat and to drink, You lead us to remember and confess Your holy cross and passion, Your blessed death, Your rest in the tomb, Your resurrection from the dead, Your ascension into heaven, and Your coming for the final judgment. So remember us in Your kingdom and teach us to pray:



Lord’s Prayer

     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 forever and ever. Amen.



The Words of Our Lord

P:  Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My + body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.”

     In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My + blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world

Have mercy on us

Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world

Have mercy on us

Lamb of God you take away the sins of the world

Distribution Hymn – Jesus, Greatest at the Table (446 LSB)


Jesus greatest at the table,

Thee almighty Son of Man

Laid aside his outer clothing

Poured some water in a pan

As the twelve lay hushed in silence

He the servants task began.


Marvel how their Lord and teacher

Gently taught them not to vie

As He humbly knelt before them

Dusty feet to wash and dry

By His tender touch expressing

True compassion from on high


Jesus took the role of servant

When upon that gruesome span

For all human sin He suffered

As a vile and loathsome man

On the cross poured out like water

To fulfill the Fathers plan


Can we fathom such deep mercy?

Do we see what God has done?

Who can grasp this great reversal

Love that gives His only Son?

Christ the sinless for the sinners

For the many dies the One.


Jesus gave to his disciples

A commandment that was new

Show my love to one another

Do as I have done to you

All the world will know you love Me

As you love each other too.






Post-Communion Collect                                                                                                     

P: We give thanks to You, almighty God, that You have refreshed us through this salutary gift, and we implore You that of Your mercy You would strengthen us through the same in faith toward You and fervent love toward one another; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

C: Amen.



P:  The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and + give you peace.

C:  Amen.


Closing Hymn – They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love (AGPS 237)

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord

We are one in the Spirit we are one in the Lord

And we pray that all unity may one day be restored.



And they’ll know we are Christians by our Love, by our love

Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love


We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand

We will walk with each other we will walk hand in hand

And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land




We will work with each other, we will work side by side

We will work with each other, we will work side by side

And we’ll guard each man’s dignity and save each man’s pride.
