Call to Worship (John 15:16)

Leader: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,

People: That ye should go and bring forth fruit,

Leader: And that your fruit should remain:

People: That whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Opening Prayer

Prayer of Confession (in unison)

Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred and strayed from Thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against Thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare Thou those, O God , who confess their faults. Restore Thou those who are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life; To the glory of Thy holy name. Amen.

Declaration of Forgiveness

Leader: The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (I Timothy 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).

We have come to the house of God as the family of God. All are welcome to join in the worship of our Creator. May all be blessed as we lift our hearts unto the Lord

Tonight at the Erskine Theological Seminary Commencement, the Rev. Tony Grant will be awarded a doctorate.

On Wednesday, May 30, we will have a Covered Dish Supper to welcome in the summer. This will be a "bring and share." We will all bring our food and share with each other. Supper begins at 7:00 p.m.

We have finished our study of I and II Kings in our Wednesday Bible Study, and so we will take a break for the summer. Bible Study will resume in the fall.

Vacation Bible School is June 4-6. It begins at 9:00 a.m. If you know a child who would like to come, sign them up on the sheet in the narthex.

Outreach North America is a Synod program to build new churches in the United States. As you may remember several years ago, Synod began an ONA drive to raise money for this purpose. At that time, our church's portion of the drive was $4806.50. Since then, we have raised $3975.50. We still owe $831. We urge you in your giving to remember this program and finish our pledge.
