who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

give us the mind to follow you

and to proclaim you as Lord and King,
to the glory of God the Father.  Amen

The JAM children have bought a donkey library

CONGRATULATIONS – To the JAM CLUB Children’s Sunday School group and their helpers.  They have been saving their collection money and have recently sent to Africa through the Good Gifts Company £125 to buy a Donkey Library.  It has taken them over two years to do this and they are extremely happy to have reached their goal.

Since JAM CLUB started the children have with their collections bought:

7 GOATS, 11 CHICKENS for Africa, 1 DONKEY LIBRARY for Africa, 1 COW, and a  MUMMY AND DADDY SHEEP for India and also 66 bowls of rice to feed 66 hungry children for 1 day.

This is a fantastic achievement by our young ones and we can’t thank them and Pat Jenks and her helpers enough for their compassion to help the less fortunate in these countries.

A warm welcome to any visitors with us today

INTRODUCTION

The Greeks said, “We wish to see Jesus”. We look again at our Christian faith so that we may see in our lives the presence of the crucified and risen Christ.

THE COLLECT

Most merciful God,

who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 474/476)

First Reading                                                        Jeremiah 31: 31-34

God promises a new covenant with his chosen people, written on their hearts. “I will be their God, and they shall be my people”.

 

Second Reading                                                Hebrews 5: 5-10

Christ is the new High Priest who offers himself on behalf of all his people, and through his suffering, wins for them eternal salvation.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. John 12: 20-33

The arrival of some Greeks at the Passover festival prompts Jesus to teach his disciples about his impending death and resurrection.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you:  Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all, and gave up your life and died for us,
but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

Sunday March 4th 2018 – THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT

A warm welcome to any visitors with us today

Introduction and call to worship

Let us worship the one true God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have been rescued from slavery to sin.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty God,

whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS

First Reading                      Exodus 20:1-17

God’s commandments explain how we should treat him and each other if we wish to live a life that is blessed.

 

Second Reading                  1 Corinthians 1:18-25

People who seek salvation in a show of strength or wisdom find it hard to believe in a crucified Saviour.

 

Gospel                                St. John 2:13-22

Jesus, the incarnate demonstration of God’s way, is shocked to find the Temple in Jerusalem demonstrating the way of greed and exploitation.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Merciful Lord, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations

of the world, the flesh and the devil,
and with pure hearts and minds to follow you, the only God;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Amen
