“Lord, Listen to Your Children”


Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer


Affirmation of Faith

We believe in God, whose love we know

in the beauty of his world,
in daily bread,
in the kindness of human hearts,
and most clearly in Jesus of Nazareth.

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, whose touch of grace

makes our eyes to see,
our ears to hear,
strengthens us to do all things in him,
and delivers us from death to life.

We believe in the Holy Spirit

in whose power there is peace,
in whose presence there is joy,
and in whose promise we dare to be more.
