Invitation to the Table

Prayers for Others & Ourselves

Affirmation of our Faith – The Apostles’ Creed (below)

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, dead, and buried
He descended into hades
The third day he rose again from the dead
He ascended into Heaven
And sitteth on the right hand of God

the Father Almighty
From thence he shall come

to judge the quick 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.
