~Scripture Sentence~

Jesus said, “you did not choose me, but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit.”

( John 15:16)


who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)




We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.




Loving God,

your Son has chosen us

and called us to be his friends:

give us grace to keep his commandments,

to love one another,

and to bear fruit which will abide;

through him who is  the true vine,

the source of all our life,

Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Congregation  Response to the Two Great Commandments:

Lord, have mercy on us:

and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit.
