Welcome!  There will be a time of greeting and

                    announcements before we begin our Worship Service

 

We are happy that you have joined us for worship.  Please let us know if we can help you in any way.

If you are visiting, please fill out one of the cards in the pews and place it in the offering plate.   We hope

You find this a friendly place and will come back again.  Please join us for Food and Fellowship in the

Memorial Room immediately following the worship service.

 

The back hallway leads to our Memorial Room, which is used as a “crying room” for children during

    the worship service.   It has a speaker system connected to the Sanctuary so you will be able to hear

the whole service there should you need to leave the Sanctuary with your child.  Please be respectful and                                                 

turn off your cell phone so the ringing and conversation does not disturb others as they focus on                                        

this time of Worship.

GREETING, WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS                              Pastor Gary Sissel

PRELUDE:            Please have a moment of silent meditation.                   Kathryn Anderson

 

OPENING PRAYER: Almighty God, our father, dwelling in majesty and mystery, renewing and  

fulfilling creation by your eternal Spirit, and revealing your glory through our Lord, Jesus Christ:

Cleansing us from doubt and fear, and enable us to worship you, with your Son and the Holy Spirit,

one God, living and reigning, now and forever.  Amen.

 

*HYMN: #  2                                                                                                 "Holy, Holy, Holy"

 

UNISON SCRIPTURE READING: Acts 2:14, 22-32   on  Page 1078  in the Pew Bibles

 

*PRAISE HYMNS: "I'll Fly Away"; "Father, I Adore You"; "Step Aside"---Please see inserts

                                      

SILENT PRAYER OF CONFESSION:  What are your idols?  What do you think about when you   

have nothing to do?  What makes you over the top angry?  What makes you inconsolably depressed?

What do you spend way too much money on that is not a need?

ASSURANCE OF PARDON:  Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we    

considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions,

he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds

we are healed.  We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord

has laid on him the iniquity of us all.  Isaiah 53: 4-6 (NIV)
