PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)

*HYMN OF PRAISE #479       “Near the Cross”

*STATEMENT OF FAITH              Apostle’s 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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into Hades; 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 living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church universal, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

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.

IN UNISON:  Father God, you are the one who leads us from darkness into light, from captivity into freedom, from anxiety into peace, and from despair into joy.  But, we forget your call to be as “innocent as doves”, longing to break free, convinced of our own wisdom, forgetting there are things in the world that can harm us.  Forgive us, draw close to us, embrace us once again in your loving arms, and enable us to follow you in worship and grateful service each day of our lives, Amen.                 (Time for personal silent reflection)

 WORDS OF ASSURANCE:         Colossians 1:13-14

 CHOIR             “You Are Mine”        Sue Bynner, flute


Genesis 3: 1-7                                      (Pew Bible Pg. 3)
Matthew 10: 16-31                           (Pew Bible Pg. 1181)

Sermon Series:  “Acquiring the Quieter Virtues”      Part 2
MESSAGE:        Rev. Earl E. Dunbar         “Rethinking Innocence”

IN UNISON:  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.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever.  Amen.

OFFERING (Please sign & pass the attendance pads.)
*DOXOLOGY:  Praise God from whom all blessings flow.  Praise Him, all creatures here below.  Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.  Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.
