Faith of Our Fathers
Sacrament of Holy Baptism (9:45)
Those who are able, please stand.
Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord.
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again;
He ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Fathe
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of
saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life
everlasting. Amen.
The congregation may be seated.
Baptismal Welcome (9:45)
Through baptism, God has made……with the same love God has for us all.
We welcome you into the Lord’s family. We receive you with great joy to
live with us in the body of Christ, to share with us in God’s new creation, to
work with us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Offertory Prayer
O God of Creation, help us to appreciate the gifts of earth, sea, and sky and
embrace their wisdom. We bring this abundance before You, the gifts of
Your creation, that they may be a blessing for others. Help us to hear Your
voice and sense Your presence in all your gifts, especially the aweinspiring gift of nature that You have first given us, through Jesus Christ
our Savior and Lord. Amen.
The Prayers
After each portion of the prayers,
Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.
Words of Institution (8:30)
The Lord’s Prayer
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, forever and ever. Amen
Distribution of Holy Communion (8:30)
O God, our life and our hope, we give you thanks for sustaining us with the body
and blood of your Son. By your Holy Spirit, lead us to be his body in the world,
that more and more we will give you praise and serve your earth and all your
people, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Isaiah 36:1–3; 36:13–20; 37:1–7: 2:1–4
In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, King Sennacherib of Assyria came up
against all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them. 2The king of Assyria sent
the Rabshakeh from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem, with a great army. He
stood by the conduit of the upper pool on the highway to the Fuller's Field. 3And
there came out to him Eliakim son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the palace, and
Shebna the secretary, and Joah son of Asaph, the recorder.
Then the Rabshakeh stood and called out in a loud voice in the language of Judah, "Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria! 14Thus says the king: 'Do
not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you. 15Do not let Hezekiah make you rely on the LORD by saying, The LORD will surely deliver us; this
city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.' 16Do not listen to Hezekiah; for thus says the king of Assyria: 'Make your peace with me and come out to
me; then everyone of you will eat from your own vine and your own fig tree and
drink water from your own cistern, 17until I come and take you away to a land like
your own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vineyards. 18Do not let
Hezekiah mislead you by saying, The LORD will save us. Has any of the gods of the
nations saved their land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? 19Where are the
gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? 20Who among all the gods of these countries have
saved their countries out of my hand, that the LORD should save Jerusalem out of
my hand?'"
When King Hezekiah heard it, he tore his clothes, covered himself with sackcloth,
and went into the house of the LORD. 2And he sent Eliakim, who was in charge of
the palace, and Shebna the secretary, and the senior priests, covered with sackcloth, to the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz. 3They said to him, "Thus says Hezekiah,
This day is a day of distress, of rebuke, and of disgrace; children have come to the
birth, and there is no strength to bring them forth. 4It may be that the LORD your
God heard the words of the Rabshakeh, whom his master the king of Assyria has
sent to mock the living God, and will rebuke the words that the LORD your God has
heard; therefore lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left."
When the servants of King Hezekiah came to Isaiah, 6Isaiah said to them, "Say to
your master, 'Thus says the LORD: Do not be afraid because of the words that you
have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have reviled me. 7I myself
will put a spirit in him, so that he shall hear a rumor, and return to his own land; I will
cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.'"
The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
In days to come the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established as the
highest of the mountains,
and shall be raised above the hills; all the nations shall stream to it. 3Many peoples
shall come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths." For out of Zion
shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4He shall judge
between the nations,
and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.

Since 2011,
Augustana has used the
Narrative Lectionary in
worship. The Narrative
follows the entire
story of scripture, from
Old to New
Testament, to help God’s
people hear about God’s
action throughout history.
In the fall we will read
from the Old Testament,
at Christmas we will
begin to read from the
gospel of Matthew, and
after Easter we will read
from the New Testament. Next week’s reading will be 1 Kings 3:415.

(8:30) We Welcome You to Holy Communion this
morning. If you are visiting with us, we extend the
hand of Christian fellowship and invite all who believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior to
participate as His guest at His table. Communion
today will be by intinction, meaning that we will
hand you a wafer and ask that you dip it into the
wine. We do have non-wheat wafers available;
simply notify the pastor when you come forward.
Children who do not yet commune are welcome to
receive a blessing. Please indicate your participation in communion on the Connection Card insert.
As you wait to participate in Holy Communion, you
may wish to turn to the prayers on page 72 in the
red hymnal (ELW), Psalm 100, or Hymn 482 or
490 for meditation and reflection. If you are unable
to come forward to receive Communion, please
notify an usher and a pastor will come to you.
Dear God,
We hear from the prophet Micah that no
amount of sacrifices is enough to get us
off the hook from our sins and idolatry. As Micah points to the coming Messiah for
salvation and redemption, may we rely on this saving power of Jesus Christ for our peace and eternal life. We pray in the name of the One who requires us to do justice, love kindness, and walk
humbly with Him. Amen.
