PEOPLE:  Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.

*HYMN OF PRAISE #419                                   “My Faith Looks Up to Thee”
Parking Lot, hymn is at the end of the bulletin.

*STATEMENT OF FAITH                                                                 Apostles’ Creed
TOGETHER:  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.

TOGETHER:  God of healing mercies, we come to you this day as imperfect people.  We know that you desire hope, happiness, and love for us, yet we have found so many ways in which to block your gifts.  We look for lifelines in all the wrong places.  Plus, our service has been mostly for ourselves and our own gratification.  We have failed to be your church, your witnesses on earth.  We have neglected the needs of others in our rush for our own comfort.  Forgive us, O merciful God. Heal our wounded spirits.  Turn us again to you, that we may again learn of your love and mercy.  For we ask this in Jesus' Name.  Amen.
