PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)

*HYMN OF PRAISE #138        “Holy God, We Praise Your Name”

*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:  God, you call us and sometimes we duck under the table, hoping you didn’t notice us.  You call us, and sometimes we grab a stapler and a stack of papers trying to look too busy to be bothered.  You call us and sometimes we say “I can’t” when we really mean “I won’t”.  We know that we aren’t expected to do everything but we often forget that you call us to be ourselves in the places where your presence in word and deed is most needed.  So, give us the grace to say “Yes” to your call as we offer our silent confessions.      (Time for personal silent reflection)

WORDS OF ASSURANCE              Hebrews 10:22-23

         (Let’s sing together!  Select a hymn you’d like to sing from our hymnal.  We’ll sing the first verse unless you indicate otherwise.)


Matthew 21: 28-32                              (Pew Bible Pg. 1200)
Jonah 1: 1-16                                     (Pew Bible Pg. 1121)

 Sermon Series:   “It’s Not Easy Going Out”         Part 1
MESSAGE:          Rev. Earl E. Dunbar         “Between ‘Can’t’ and ‘Won’t’”

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.

*SENDING HYMN #136         Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty“”
