Order of Service—February 12, 2023
Baptized adult Christians and those who have completed confirmation, who
know they need God’s daily forgiveness, who are sorry for their sins, who seek
God’s forgiveness, and who believe the body and blood of Jesus Christ are truly
present in this meal are invited to share this great gift of God.
We encourage those who are unsure of their beliefs or who don’t yet agree with
our beliefs to use the time of communion to reflect, pray, and sing. We encourage those who are in agreement with us in our beliefs to receive the body and
blood of Jesus given and shed for our forgiveness.

Reading from John 10:22-30
I and the Father Are One
22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me,[a] is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”
