Altar Flowers: by Pam Bass
The flowers are placed in the sanctuary to the glory of God and in loving memory of my parents, Rachel and Paul Stokes, my sister, Crystal Smith, and my Uncle Luther.

Voluntary: Colby Griffin
To God be the Glory
Arr. by Mary McDonald
Call to Worship: Rev., J. Kenneth Byrd
We come to this place with different needs:
some of us wrestling with issues
that threaten to overwhelm us;
some of us crying out for healing,
for relevance, for refuge;
some of us hungering
for what God alone can provide.
In this time and in this place,
God is here and meets us face to face.
Hymn of Praise:
(7) Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee
HYMN TO JOY
A Time with Children: Rev. Byrd
Psalter Reading: Cheryl Rice

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.
Offertory: Kenley Byrd
Prayer of Dedication:
Gospel Reading: Rev. Byrd
Matthew 14:13-21 (ESV)
Call to Prayer:
To those who are hungry, Jesus says:
“Come and eat! There’s more than enough for all!”
To those who are thirsty, he says:
“Come and drink! It’s free for all!”
Stop wasting your resources on food that doesn’t satisfy.
"Come to Me, and you will find everything you need!”
Let us come to Christ now in this time of prayer . . .

(63) Abide With Me
Commission & Blessing:
As you leave this time of worship
remember that you do not go alone.
God is close at hand.
He hears the cry of all who call on His name.
He honors those who honor Him,
listening to their prayers and coming to their aid.
So go from here with joy and confidence,
to love and serve God and one another.
