Opening Hymn –  Tell out my soul H82 #437

1. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord!
Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;
tender to me the promise of his word;
in God my Savior shall my heart rejoice.

2. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his Name!
Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done;
his mercy sure, from age to age the same;
his holy Name—the Lord, the Mighty One.

3. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might!
Powers and dominions lay their glory by.
Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,
the hungry fed, the humble lifted high.

4. Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word!
Firm is his promise, and his mercy sure.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord
to children’s children and for evermore!

Presider         Blessed be God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
People            And blessed be God’s Kingdom, now and forever. Amen.

Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Collect (Prayer) of the Day

Presider         The Lord be with you. | El Señor sea con ustedes.
People             And also with you. | Y con tu espíritu.

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Lamentations 3:19-26

The thought of my affliction and my homelessness is wormwood and gall! 
My soul continually thinks of it and is bowed down within me.
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; 
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” 

The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. 
It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.

A Reading from 2 Timothy 1:1-14

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, for the sake of the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I am grateful to God– whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did– when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. Recalling your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace. This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. For this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher, and for this reason I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to him. Hold to the standard of sound teaching that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Guard the good treasure entrusted to you, with the help of the Holy Spirit living in us.

The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL HYMNFlor y Canto #662 EL SEÑOR ES MI FUERZA

EL SEÑOR ES MI FUERZA
MI ROCA Y SAVACIÓN (2v)

1. Tú me guías por sendas de justicia,
me enseñas la Verdad.
Tú me das el valor para la lucha,
sin miedo avanzaré.

2. Iluminas las sombras de mi vida,
al mundo das la luz.
Aunque pase por valles de tinieblas,
yo nunca temeré.

The Holy Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, according to Luke 17:5-10

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” The Lord replied, “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, `Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

“Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, `Come here at once and take your place at the table’? Would you not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink’? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, `We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!'”

The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Christ!

Message – The Rev. Audra Abt

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 (s)he is worshiped and glorified,
And 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 GOD’S PEOPLE

In peace, we pray to you, Lord God.   (Silence)

For all people in their daily life and work;
For our families, friends, and neighbors, and for those who are alone.

For this community, the nation, and the world;
For all who work for justice, freedom, and peace.

For the just and proper use of your creation;
For the victims of hunger, fear, injustice, and oppression.

For all who are in danger, sorrow, or any kind of trouble;
For those who minister to the sick, the friendless, and the needy.

For the peace and unity of the Church of God;
For all who proclaim the Gospel, and all who seek the Truth.

For Michael, our Presiding Bishop, and Sam and Anne our Bishops; and for all bishops and other ministers;
For all who serve God in the Church.

A Prayer for the Power of the Spirit Among the People of God

God of all power and love, we give thanks for your unfailing presence
and the hope you provide in times of uncertainty and loss.
Send your Holy Spirit to enkindle in us your holy fire.
Revive us to live as Christ’s body in the world:
a people who pray, worship, learn, break bread, share life, heal neighbors,
bear good news, seek justice, rest and grow in the Spirit.
Wherever and however we gather,
unite us in common prayer and send us in common mission,
that we and the whole creation might be restored and renewed,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I ask your prayers for the special needs and concerns of this congregation. 
(Pause for prayers)

Hear us, Lord;
For your mercy is great.

We thank you, Lord, for all the blessings of this life.   
(Pause for prayers)

We will exalt you, O God our King;
And praise your Name for ever and ever.

We pray for all who have died, that they may have a place in your eternal kingdom. 
(Pause for prayers)

Lord, let your loving-kindness be upon them;
Who put their trust in you.

Confession of Sin

Deacon     Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Silence

All:     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.

Leader      Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

The Peace
Presider         The Peace and Love of Jesus Christ by always with you.

OFFERTORY

Offertory hymn – Flor y Canto #683 Te Ofrezco, Señor, mi vida

1. Te ofrezco, Señor, mi vida;
me ofrezco ante tu altar.
Te ofrezco, Señor, mi todo
en este humilde cantar.

2. Te ofrezco todos mis dones;
te ofrezco todo mi amor.
Te ofrezco este sacrificio,
te ofrezco todo el dolor.

3. Acepta lo que te ofrezco;
es todo que puedo dar.
Acepta, Señor, mi alma;
es tuya para salvar.

4. Mi Dios, te doy lo que tengo,

y con tu gracia me voy.

HOLY COMMUNION

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give God thanks and praise.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 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:

Sanctus  (Holy, Holy, Holy) LEVAS 255
HOLY HOLY, HOLY HOLY,
HOLY LORD GOD OF HOSTS
HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE
FILLED WITH YOUR GLORY.
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!

BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES
IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, OF THE LORD.
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!

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 thewhole world.

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.” “Tomen y coman. Este es mi Cuerpo, entregado por ustedes. Hagan esto como memorial mío”.

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.” “Beban todos de él. Esta es mi Sangre del nuevo Pacto, sangre derramada por ustedes y por muchos para el perdón de los pecados. Siempre que lo beban, háganlo como memorial mío

Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.

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.

As our Savior Christ has taught us, we boldly pray,

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. 
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

Therefore let us keep the feast. Alleluia.

BLESSING

Closing hymn – God of grace and God of glory H82 #594

1. God of grace and God of glory, on thy people pour thy power;
Crown thine ancient Church’s story; bring her bud to glorious flower.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the facing of this hour, for the facing of this hour.

2. Lo! The hosts of evil round us scorn thy Christ, assail his ways!
From the fears that long have bound us free our hearts to faith and praise:
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
For the facing of these days, for the facing of these days.

3. Cure thy children’s warring madness, bend our pride to thy control;
Shame our wanton, selfish gladness, rich in things but poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
Lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal, lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal.

4. Save us from weak resignation to the evils we deplore;
Let the gift of thy salvation be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
Serving thee whom we adore, serving thee whom we adore.
