Just to clarify the lack of recent bulletins. March 22nd was the last service we had before cancelling in-house services due to the coronavirus. Since we returned to having services in the church building on July 5th, we have decided to restrict the number of ways that a virus could be shared which includes handing out paper bulletins.

*Call to Worship
Pastor: God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
All: Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
Pastor: though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
All: He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’

we admit today that sometimes circumstances on this earth leave us confused,
afraid and doubtful. Help us to recognize the power of the Holy Spirit that
live in us, and help us to know that you are in charge. Forgive us when we lose
sight of the wonderful, amazing Father You are.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. World without end. Amen. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

*The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
