PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)


*HYMN OF PRAISE #95 (Vs. 1,2,3 & 6)              “O God, Our Help in Ages Past”

*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 of abundance and grace: You know us well; better than we know ourselves.  You hear us cry “Gloria!” and “Praise!”  And you watch us tear things apart with our words and deeds.  You hear us say “Thy will be done” and “use me, O God” and you watch us do nothing in response to cries for help.  You give us opportunities to serve you and we consistently ignore them.  You know us, and you love us, and you forgive.  Hear us as we ask you to help us
change; turn us around, and to make us more loving, courageous, and hopeful.  This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.               (Time for personal silent reflection)

WORDS OF ASSURANCE:                    Acts 10:36, 43

THE WORD IN MUSIC           Lauren Falk       “Thanks Be To God”


New Testament: II Timothy 2: 8-13    (Pew Bible Pg. 1449)
Old Testament: Ruth 1: 11-22          (Pew Bible Pg. 334)

Sermon Series:  
“Two Women:  Lessons About God”

 MEDITATION:        Rev. Earl E. Dunbar                   “Don’t Lose Hope”

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.
