Opening Prayer


Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Righteous God,

You have crowned Jesus Christ as Lord of all.

We confess that we have not bowed before him.

We are slow to acknowledge his rule.

We are faithful to the wrong things.

We give allegiance to the powers of this world.

We fail to be governed by justice and love.

In your mercy, forgive us.

Raise us to acclaim him as ruler of all,

that we may be loyal ambassadors,

Obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

For it is in his name  that we pray. Amen.


Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader:  The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting.  I declare to you, in the name of Jesus Christ; you are forgiven.

People:  May the God of mercy, who forgives us all our sins strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy spirit keep us in eternal life.

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega of our lives.  We have come here today to partake freely of his love and to be renewed by his power.  Welcome!


Mark your calendars!  On August 12, the young people are going to Ray’s Splash Planet, a water park in Charlotte.  This will be their back-to-school bash.  If you are going, please sign the sheet in the narthex of the church.  Each child and adult is asked to bring a bag lunch.


Debbie Gibby broke a bone in her foot.  Nancy Stewart has a compressed disc in her spine.  Margaret Harbin is to have knee surgery soon.  Pam Smith is also facing surgery.  Tracy Connolly, daughter in law of Bob Connolly, had brain surgery last week.  Please remember all our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.


The WOC is planning a bridal miscellaneous shower for Lindsay Phillips on Sunday, August 13, from 3 to 4 in the Ladies’ Parlor.  Come and help Trey and Lindsay celebrate this happy occasion.


In the narthex of the church, there are plaques honoring members of the church who served in World Wars I and II.  These folks were members of the church at the time they went off to war. 

Since then other people have joined the church who also served in our nation’s wars.  The suggestion has been made that we construct a plague honoring these others who also served our country.  This plaque would be placed in the educational building. 

If you have a name that should be included on this plaque, please contact Carroll Moore.
