Altar Flowers: by Sandra Mayo
The flowers are given in praise of our risen Lord and Savior and dedicated to His sheep who know their Shepherd & hear His voice. Although the world seems to be "in pieces" right now....we know the ending...and it is a glorious one! God is still in control!

An Invocation & the Lord's Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come. They will be done,
On Earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, forever. Amen.
On Eagle's Wings
arr. by Douglas Wagner
Prayer of Dedication:
Epistle Reading: Rev. Byrd
Romans 8:26-39 (ESV)
Call to Prayer:
When we are not sure how to pray,
or if we are even able to address God in prayer,
the Spirit intercedes for us
with sighs too deep for words.
Know that no matter what, nothing,
absolutely nothing can ever separate us
from God's presence and His love.
Think on this as we pray . . .
Time of Silent Prayer:
Sharing in God's Word:
Steady Steps and Watery Eyes!

Commission & Blessing:
We go forth -
With a song of praise on our lips,
With the love of God in our hearts,
With a commitment to the word of God,
With all that we are and all we can be,
We go forth to serve and proclaim!
