PRELUDE        (Please enter into a prayerful mode)

*HYMN OF PRAISE #506     “I Want Jesus to Walk with Me”

*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, we confess that we are frightened by death.  We have experienced the loss of loved ones and have heard, all too often, of the horrible losses sustained by people who live in lands of warfare and strife and in our own backyard.  Jesus’ power to resurrect Lazarus confuses us.  We long for that type of healing for our loved ones.  And so, when their bodies cannot be healed and they die, we slip away from our faith, proclaiming that this is a nice story.  Give us courage and hope to face our fear.  Give us the hope that is grounded in the resurrection of Jesus.  Help us move away from the prison of death to the light of eternal life and hope.  In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.      (Time for personal silent reflection)

MESSAGE:                Rev. Earl Dunbar         “Death is Done”

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.)
