In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, the Head of the Church.
Elders, Deacons, and Pastor of The International Christian Church of Minahasa (GMIM USA) welcome to you all.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name”

I Love You, Lord
I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice
To worship you, Oh my soul rejoice!
Take joy, my King, in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear

To worship you as my soul demands
Take joy, my King, in what you see
May I be a sweet, sweet child on your knee

The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love
The LORD is good to all; God has compassion on all of creation.
All people know of your God’s acts and the glorious splendor of God’s kingdom.

L1. Prayer of Confession-Pengakuan Dosa
With faith and hope, let us confess our sin…………….
The Good Shepherd calls to us. We know our shepherd’s voice, but fail to heed it. Merciful God, to walk paths of righteousness and enjoy your life abundant, we must follow you in trust and obedience.
Though you beckon us, we go our own way. Though you defend us, we are filled with fear.
You spread a table before us. Our cup overflows. We judge those with whom we are seated. We worry there will not be enough.
In your mercy, forgive us, Lord. Take us by the hand, and guide us in your ways. Help us to rest in your company, and there
learn to be grateful and generous. Amen.
KJ. 407.Savior, like a shepherd lead us
Savior, like a shepherd lead us, Much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us, For our use Thy folds prepare:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus, Thou hast bought us, Thine we are;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
We are Thine, do Thou befriend us, Be the guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, Seek us when we go astray:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus, Hear, O hear us when we pray;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus, Hear, O hear us when we pray
P. Declaration of Forgiveness-Pemberitaan Pengampunan
For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God.
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.
The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also be with you. Amen
Let us share the peace and love of God, and forgive one another.
