Concerns of the Church
Call to Worship (Hebrews 4:12)
Leader: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword.
People: Piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit.
Prayer of Confession (In Unison)
I poor sinner confess to thee, O Almighty, eternal, merciful God and Father, that I have sinned in manifold ways against thee and thy commandments.
I confess that I have not believed in thee, my one God and Father, but have put my faith and trust more in creatures than in thee, my God and Creator, because I have feared them more than thee. And for their benefit and pleasure, I have done and left undone many things in disobedience to thee and thy commandments.
I confess that I have taken thy holy Name in vain, that I have often sworn falsely and lightly by the same, that I have not always professed it nor kept it holy as I ought; but even more, I have slandered it often and grossly with all my life, words, and deeds.
Wherefore I beseech thee, O heavenly Father, that, thou wouldst graciously forgive me these and all my sins. Keep and preserve me henceforth that I may walk only in thy way and live according to thy will; and all of this through Jesus Christ, thy dear Son, our Savior. Amen.
--Martin Bucer 1539
Declaration of Forgiveness
Leader: The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15).
People: He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed (I Peter 2:24).

Summerfest 2002 is next Saturday (August 24)!!! Once again, our WOC will sponsor this annual fundraiser, but we need everyone's help. We especially need workers to help set up and take down and clean up. We also need workers for every other aspect of our fundraiser. Further, we need donations of tea, Coke and Pepsi products, homemade cakes and pies. If you would like to help in any of these ways, call Barbara Bennett at 684-4833. If you would like to make a donation of money to defray expenses, please give your contributions to Frances Nivens.
Louise McDaniels is still in Piedmont Hospital. Please remember her and all our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.
The Session meets tonight at 7:00 p.m.
Bible Study gets underway on the first Wednesday in September (September 4). This session we will be studying the books of I and II Corinthians.
