Call to Worship (Psalm 96:2-3)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
People: Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
God of glory,
You sent Jesus among us as the light of the world, to reveal your love for all people. We confess that our sin and pride hide the brightness of your light. We turn away from the poor; we ignore cries for justice; we do not strive for peace. In your mercy, cleanse us of our sin, and baptize us again with your Holy Spirit, that forgiven and renewed, we may show forth your glory, shining in the face of Jesus Christ. In whose name, we most humbly pray. Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness
Leader: Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)
People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)

We ask that if you know of someone in need you contact a member of the committee that administers the fund. The Deacon's Fund Committee is composed of Lana Rossy, Nancy Abernethy, and Dr. Tony Grant.
