Corporate Prayer of Confession with Individual Prayers of Confession

Awesome and Compassionate God, You have loved us with unfailing, self-giving mercy, But we have not loved You. You constantly call us, but we are slow to listen.

You ask us to love, but we walk away from neighbors in need, wrapped in our own concerns. We condone evil, prejudice, warfare, and greed.

God of grace, as You come to us in mercy, we repent in spirit and in truth.

Grant us, we pray, the grace to die daily to sin and to rise daily to new life in Christ, who lives and reigns with You, and in whose strong name we pray. Amen.

that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.

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 Lord’s Supper - We celebrate the Lords Supper each Sunday at Ingram. All who sincerely trust in Jesus Christ and Him alone, for the forgiveness of sin, are invited to partake. Our custom is to distribute the elements processing forward by rows. When everyone is served, then we will take the elements together. For children not yet taking communion, please bring them forward with you so Pastor John may pray for them. If you believe your child is ready to take Communion, please ask Pastor John about the process.
