The following Prayer of Confession was written by this year's communicants class in response to a lesson on sin.  Class participants are Brenley Little, Rachel Rodriguez, Davey Richardson, Barkley Biggs, Will Crews, Halle Trevathan, Addy Usery and Olivia Jones.  This prayer was used for the Confession of Sin on Sunday, March 17, 2019.  I am very proud of these young people for the effort and seriousness they have put forward in studying about joining the church and making a profession of their faith in Jesus Christ. 

Dear Father in Heaven, we admit to you that we are sinners and that we are in need of a redeemer, someone who will pay our ransom.  We thank you God for your Son Jesus, who died a sinner’s death. Forgive us for taking blessings for granted, for breaking the Golden Rule, for talking back and smarting off to our parents or anyone in a position of authority, for caring more about what others think than what you think, for talking more than praying, for being present in body but absent in spirit, and for not loving others as you so freely love us.  Please forgive us these sins and the many others not named.  In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
