COMMUNION:

The Lord be with you.  

And also with you.  

Lift up your hearts.  

We lift them up to the Lord.  

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.  

It is right to give our 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. 

And so, 
with your people on earth 
and all the company of heaven 
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:  

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, 
heaven and earth are full of your glory. 
Hosanna in the highest. 
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. 
Hosanna in the highest.  

Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ. 
By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection 
you gave birth to your church, 
delivered us from slavery to sin and death, 
and made with us a new covenant 
by water and the Spirit.  

On the night in which he gave himself up for us 
he took bread, gave thanks to you, broke the bread, 
gave it to his disciples, and said: 
“Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. 
Do this in remembrance of me.”  

When the supper was over, he took the cup, 
gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said: 
“Drink from this, all of you; 
this is my blood of the new covenant, 
poured out for you and for many 
for the forgiveness of sins. 
Do this, as often as you drink it, 
in remembrance of me.”  

And so, 
in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, 
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving 
as a holy and living sacrifice, 
in union with Christ’s offering for us, 
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.  

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.  

Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, 
and on these gifts of bread and wine. 
Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ,
that we may be for the world the body of Christ, 
redeemed by his blood.  

By your Spirit make us one with Christ, 
one with each other, 
and one in ministry to all the world, 
until Christ comes in final victory, 
and we feast at his heavenly banquet.  

Through your Son Jesus Christ, 
with the Holy Spirit in your holy church, 
all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, 
now and forever.  

Amen.  

And now, with the confidence of children of God, let us pray:  

Go forth in peace. 
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, 
and the love of God, 
and the communion of the Holy Spirit 
be with you all.  

Amen.

Benediction
