Scripture Reading, and Prayers – Psalm / Salmo 8
M: O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your Name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
C: When we look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
M: Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
C: O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your Name in all the earth!
M: Oh Señor, soberano nuestro, ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra! ¡Has puesto tu gloria sobre los cielos! Por causa de tus adversarios has hecho que brote la alabanza de labios de los pequeñitos y de los niños de pecho, para silenciar al enemigo y al rebelde.
C: Cuando contemplo tus cielos, obra de tus dedos, la luna y las estrellas que allí fijaste, me pregunto: «¿Qué es el hombre, para que en él pienses? ¿Qué es el hijo del hombre, para que lo tomes en cuenta?»
M: Pues lo hiciste poco menos que un dios, y lo coronaste de gloria y de honra: lo entronizaste sobre la obra de tus manos, todo lo sometiste a su dominio; todas las ovejas, todos los bueyes, todos los animales del campo, las aves del cielo, los peces del mar, y todo lo que surca los senderos del mar.
C: Oh Señor, soberano nuestro, ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra!
Lord’s Prayer / El Padre Nuestro
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
and the power and the glory forever.
Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino; Hágase tu voluntad,
como en el cielo, así también en la tierra.
El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy.
Y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentación,
mas líbranos del mal;
porque tuyo es el reino,
y el poder, y la gloria, por todos los siglos.
Confession of Sins: God Forgives His People
– Abide with Me
Minister: Brothers and sisters, let us humbly confess our sins to God.
Ministro: Hermano y hermanas, que confesemos nuestros pecados a Dios.
C: O God, we acknowledge our many trespasses and sins, and ask you to show us mercy in our time of need. Grant that all of us who are baptized into the Name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, from the least to the greatest, may bear your Holy Name faithfully and reverently both in this life and the life to come. We ask these things through Christ our Mediator. Amen
C: Oh Dios, reconocemos nuestras muchas faltas y pecados, y te pedimos que nos muestres misericordia en este momento de necesidad. Concede que todos los que hemos sido bautizados en el Nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo, desde el más pequeño hasta el más grande, podamos llevar tu Santo Nombre con fidelidad y reverencia, tanto en esta vida como en la venidera. Te lo pedimos por medio de Cristo nuestro Mediador. Amén

Sermon en Español en Salon Adult C.
Consecration: God Equips His Church
Scripture Reading and Prayer – Deuteronomy 6:4-9;Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:4-6
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children.
Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Collect. Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Sermon — Trinity: One God, Three Persons (Ephesians 1:2-14)
To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
Westminster Confession of Faith on the Holy Trinity (Español)
In the unity of the Godhead there be three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; the Holy Ghost eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son. (II.3)
Q 11. How does it appear that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father? A. The Scriptures manifest that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father, ascribing unto them such names, attributes, works, and worship, as are proper to God only. Isa. 6:3, 5, 8; John 12:41; Acts 28:25; 1 John 5:20; Acts 5:3-4; John 1:1; Isa. 9:6; John 2:24-25; 1 Cor. 2:10-11; Col. 1:16; Gen. 1:2; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. Eph. 1:16-21

Confession of Faith: God Saves His Church
Congregation Reads – The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God,
the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
begotten of the Father before all worlds;
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,
and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again,
according to the Scriptures;
and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father;
and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead;
whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life;
who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;
who spoke by the prophets.
And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen

Prayers of Thanksgiving for the Body and Blood of Christ
Minister: O merciful Lord, we do not presume to come to your Table, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your Table. But you are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness: Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his Body, and our souls washed through his most precious Blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen. (Prayer of Humble Access / adapted by JMT)
Acción de Gracias por el Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo
Minister: Oh Señor misericordioso, nosotros no nos atrevemos a venir a tu Mesa, confiando en nuestra rectitud ni justicia, sino en tus muchas y grandes misericordias. No somos dignos ni aún de recoger las migajas debajo de tu Mesa. Mas Tú eres clemente y compasivo, lento para la ira y grande en amor y fidelidad: concédenos, Señor, por tu gracia, que de tal modo comamos la carne de tu amado Hijo Jesucristo, y bebamos su sangre, que nuestros cuerpos pecadores sean limpios por su Cuerpo, y nuestras almas lavadas por su preciosa Sangre; y que siempre vivamos en El, y El en nosotros. Amén
Words of Institution / Palabras de Institución – 1 Cor. 11:23-26
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
Yo recibí del Señor lo mismo que les he enseñado a ustedes: Que la noche que fue entregado, el Señor Jesús tomó pan, y que luego de dar gracias, lo partió y dijo: «Tomen y coman. Esto es mi cuerpo, que por ustedes es partido; hagan esto en mi memoria.» Asimismo, después de cenar tomó la copa y dijo: «Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre; hagan esto, cada vez que la beban, en mi memoria.»

Que el cuerpo y la sangre de nuestro Señor Jesucristo te fortalezcan y te conserven firme en la fe verdadera para vida eterna. En el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo.
