Call to Worship (Psalm 92:1-2)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
People: To declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
God of mercy, you sent Jesus Christ to seek and save the lost.
We confess that we have strayed from you and turned aside from your way.
We are misled by pride, for we see ourselves pure when we are stained, and great when we are small.
We have failed in love, neglected justice, and ignored your truth.
Have mercy, 0 God, and forgive our sin. Return us to paths of righteousness through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray, Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness (Romans 8:38-39)
Leader: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
People: Shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We rejoice in your presence at worship today. St. Paul reminds us that we are made to seek God who “is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:27, nrsv). Therefore, let us remove all barriers between ourselves and the Holy Spirit. May God’s love touch and strengthen us all.
Reverend William C. Ewart served as pastor of this church from 1903 until his death in 1908. He is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery. An obelisk monument is placed over his grave. This monument has settled unevenly and is now leaning. It will soon fall if not repaired. It will cost $195 to take the monument apart, level the base, replace the sections, and clean the monument. The church is going to have this work done. If you would like to participate in this work, please give your donation to the treasurer and mark it “For the Ewart Monument,”
