People: And with you also.

Leader: One does not live by bread alone,

People: But by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (In Unison)

O Lord God, eternal and almighty Father, we confess and acknowledge unfeignedly before thy holy majesty that we are poor sinners, conceived and born in iniquity and corruption, prone to do evil, incapable of any good, and that in our depravity we transgress thy holy commandments without end or ceasing: Wherefore we purchase for ourselves, through thy righteous judgement, our ruin and perdition. Nevertheless, O Lord, we are grieved that we have offended thee,; and we condemn ourselves and ours sins with true repentance, beseeching thy grace to relieve our distress. O God and Father most gracious and full of compassion, have mercy upon us in the name of thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. And as thou dost blot out our sins and stains, magnify and increase in us day by day the grace of thy Holy Spirit; that as we acknowledge our unrighteousness with all our heart, we may be moved by that sorrow which shall bring forth true repentance in us, mortifying all our sins and producing in us the fruits of righteousness and innocence which are pleasing unto thee; through the same Jesus Christ our lord. Amen.

(John Calvin Geneva 1542)

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).

An enthusiastic welcome to all! With love and joy let us worship God and strive to grow in grace. Come now, let us worship and have fellowship together.

Summerfest 2002 is only a few weeks away (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 McDaniel is still in Piedmont Hospital. Marin Grant fell and broke her arm for a second time. Please remember these and all our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.


If you have questions or comments, email Tony Grant
