Celebrant

 

Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

And blessed be his kingdom, now and for ever. 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 Christ our Lord. Amen.

Celebrant

 

The Lord be with you.

     And also with you.

 

Let us pray.

 

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Please be seated

 

A Reading from Daniel (12:1-3)

 

The Lord spoke to Daniel in a vision and said, “At that time Michael, the great prince, the protector of your people, shall arise. There shall be a time of anguish, such as has never occurred since nations first came into existence. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All say

 

Psalm 16

 

Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you;

I have said to the Lord, “You are my Lord,

my good above all other.”

All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land,

upon those who are noble among the people.

But those who run after other gods

shall have their troubles multiplied.

Their libations of blood I will not offer,

nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.

O Lord, you are my portion and my cup;

it is you who uphold my lot.

My boundaries enclose a pleasant land;

indeed, I have a goodly heritage.

I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel;

my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set the Lord always before me;

because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.

My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices;

my body also shall rest in hope.

For you will not abandon me to the grave,

nor let your holy one see the Pit.

You will show me the path of life;

in your presence there is fullness of joy,

and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

 

A Reading from Hebrews 10:11-14 (15-18) 19-25 (9:11-14)

 

Every priest stands day after day at his service, offering again and again the same sacrifices that can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, “he sat down at the right hand of God,” and since then has been waiting “until his enemies would be made a footstool for his feet.” For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds,” he also adds,

“I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. Therefore, my friends, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain (that is, through his flesh), and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All stand

 

Hymn 628                                                                 “Help us, O Lord to learn”    

                                                                                                

 

 

 

 

 

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark (13:1-8)

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

As Jesus came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!” Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.”

 

When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign that all these things are about to be accomplished?” Then Jesus began to say to them, “Beware that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name and say, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. This is but the beginning of the birthpangs.”

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

 

Sermon                                                                            The Rev. Andy Houltberg                                                      

Please stand and all say

 

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, he is worshiped and glorified.

He 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.

 

Leader

 

As we wait for the sign of the end, let us offer prayers to God through Jesus who offered his blood saying, Lord, have mercy.

 

For this holy gathering, and for the people of God in every place.

Lord, have mercy.

For Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury; Michael our Presiding Bishop; Mark and Michael our Bishops; for Bobby our Provost; Catherine our Curate; Basil our

Assisting Priest; Andy our Deacon; for The Anglican Church of Australia in our Anglican cycle of prayer; for St. Andrew’s Church, Rural Hays, The Rev. Shay Craig in our Diocesan cycle of prayer; for Isaiah Houltberg and all who are celebrating birthdays this week; for all who are celebrating anniversaries this week.

Lord, have mercy.

For all the peoples of the earth and for their leaders; for Joe our President, Laura our Governor; Melissa our Mayor, and for justice, mercy, and peace.

Lord, have mercy.

For this city of Salina, and those who live in it; and for ourselves, our families,

companions, and all those we love.

Lord, have mercy.

For good weather, abundant fruits of the earth, and peaceful times.

Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and the suffering, travelers and refugees, prisoners and their families, and the dying and dead.

Lord, have mercy.

Remembering the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, and all the saints, let us offer ourselves and one another to the living God through Christ.

To you, O Lord.

 

Celebrant

 

God of all times and places, hear the prayers we offer this day, send your angel to deliver your people, and awaken those who sleep in the dust; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Please remain standing

 

Deacon

 

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

 

Silence

 

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.

 

Celebrant

 

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

 

Celebrant

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

          And also with you.

 

 

 

Musical Offering                     Offertoire, Op. 77 No. 1                     A. Guilmant

 

Following the musical offering, all stand and sing the Doxology 

   

Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Praise him all creatures here below.

Praise him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

                                                     

                              The Holy Communion

 

The people stand as the Celebrant faces them and says

 

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 him thanks and praise.

 

Then, facing the Holy Table, the Celebrant proceeds

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

 

For you are the source of light and life, you made us in your image, and called us to new life in 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:

 

All sing

 

 

Please remain standing

 

Then the Celebrant continues

 

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 the whole world.

 

At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it or lay a hand upon it; and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand upon the cup and any other
vessel containing wine to be consecrated.

 

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.”

 

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.”

 

Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:

 

 

Celebrant and People

 

Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.

 

The Celebrant continues

 

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

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say

 

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. And 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 Celebrant breaks the consecrated bread and a moment of silence is observed

 

All sing

 

 

 

 

The Celebrant offers the consecrated bread and wine to the people saying

 

The Gifts of God for the People of God. Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your hearts by faith, with thanksgiving.

 

All baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Communion. If you have not been baptized and would like to receive a blessing, please come forward and cross your arms across your chest. We offer a gluten free version of the Host. Please let the clergy know if you would like this option. Due to Covid concerns, wine can be received during communion in individual cups.

 

All sing

 

Hymn 686                                                       “Come, thou fount of every blessing

                                                                                     

After Communion, the Celebrant says

 

Let us pray.

 

Please stand

 

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

The Celebrant blesses the people

 

All sing

 

Hymn 607                                                                          “O God of every nation”
