 *Call to Worship             

Pastor:  Lord God, we are baptized with one baptism, eat of one bread and drink of one cup.

People:   We confess one name above all other names; we are obedient to one Lord, who frees us from the tyranny and hatefulness of the world.

Pastor:  We share one hope, one comfort, one goal.

People: We are one people, united--despite any noticeable differences--by our faith in You, Lord Jesus.

Pastor:  We are one people, united by Your love and mercy to stand against any power that would try to tear us apart.

All:         We are one people, united in blessing and in suffering, united in joy and in sorrow, united in strength and in weakness. We praise You!  Amen


*Hymn # 281 B                                                                                                  “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”


Children's Sermon


Congregational Prayer of Confession (In Unison)

God, forgive us.  Our communion is not always visible to the world.  Sometimes we allow threats to unity to enter the church, making it hard to see that we are Your community.  We act as though we do not need each other.  We do not always love one another.  We do not know and bear one another’s burdens.  We fail to build each other up.  We do not always give ourselves willingly and joyfully to one another.  Forgive us, and strengthen us so that we may live in the unity that You grant us.  We pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.


Assurance of Pardon


*Gloria Patri

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.

Anthem                                                                                                               The One Is Blessed – Psalm 1 – # 158 B


Prayer of the People and The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer will be recited as part of the Communion Service.


Offertory                                                                                                             Count Your Blessings – Excell



Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.


*Prayer of Dedication


Scripture Reading                                                                                           Job 1:1; 2:1 – 10


Gospel Reading                                                                                               Mark 10:2 – 16


Sermon                                                                                                                “Lean in and Listen”


*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.

*Hymn 507 B Vs. 1 – 3                                                                               “I Come With Joy”


The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper


*Hymn # 507 B Vs 4 – 5                                                                                 “I Come With Joy”
