OPENING PRAYER

God your love for me is like that of a parent for a child. Thank you for making Jesus my brother. I ask that with Christ I may dive into the baptismal waters. May it purify me and give me dignity that only comes through the blood of the lamb. Amen.

PASSING THE PEACE

HYMN #347Spirit Song

WRITTEN WORD Matthew 3:13-17

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

   One: The Word of God for the people of God

   All:    Thanks be to God
