12th Sunday after Pentecost
God of our holy and righteous ancestors:
accept us as a living sacrifice
and transform us by your Spirit,
that, being members of one body,
we will offer our gifts in Christ’s service;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever
Listen to the Good News proclaimed by Matthew 16:13-20
Commission & Blessing
Who do we say Jesus is?
How do our lives reflect this?
We go now to live out our faith
in word, in action and in love
And we go
knowing the love of God the Father,
strengthened through know the risen Son
and inspired by the Holy Spirit,
in this place
and at this time,
always. In the name of Christ. Amen.
