SCRIPTURE READING | Luke 17:3-10
Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.” The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table’? Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink’? Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’”

CONFESSION & ABSOLUTION
God of mercy
We confess that we are by our very nature, a sinful people
We sin against you with our thoughts, our words and our actions.
We have sinned against you by not doing the things we know we should do.
We have not loved you with our whole hearts and
We have not loved our neighbors with the love you have called us to.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, we ask for your mercy.
Forgive us, renew us and lead us so that we can daily walk in your ways
bring glory to you and blessing to our neighbors. Amen
God in his divine mercy
has loved us enough to give His own Son to die and rise for us
And for his sake, God forgives every one of our sins
in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
GENEROSITY LITURGY | Written by Trinity Grace Church
Everything we have is a gift from God
All that we have and are belong to God,
Bought with the blood of Jesus.
Lord, help us be a people who live lives of sacrificial generosity
that through our generosity, Your love would be known.
Keep us from the delusion of wealth and riches
and remind us that our treasure is in Christ
Increase our generosity so that there are no needy persons among us.
Grant us faithfulness in our stewardship of such a small thing as money
that Christ may trust us with true riches.
Above all, let us be generous because our Father is generous
And it is our joy to share His generous heart with the world.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
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
