Prelude Welcome, Announcements and Preparation *Opening Hymn Take My Life, 609 *Invocation Lord God of love and peace, open our hearts today to receive the invitation of Jesus to come and be present in our lives.

Pastoral Prayer Joys & concerns and the Lords Prayer Response Thank You, Lord, 531 Thank you, Lord, thank you, Lord, Thank you, Lord, I just want to thank you, Lord. (2 times) Sermon Loved and Transformed Pastor Stacy Shelton The Lords Table Invitation Prayer of Confession Lord of mercy, forgive us when we make excuses for our lack of faith. We let our selfishness and apathy get in the way of illumination and peace. We find ways to duck out of our opportunities for service and witness, claiming that we are too small or too ill-equipped to be effective witnesses to Jesus Christ. We whine and complain about the misfortunes that have befallen us and wonder where God is. Yet Gods love is always surrounding us. Help us, O Lord. Stop us from being so faithless. Open our hearts with your forgiving spirit that we, having been healed and forgiven, may actually be effective witnesses to your love and compassion. For we ask this in Jesus Name. AMEN.

We believe in God the Creator, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love; and in Jesus Christ, God's Son, our Lord and Savior, who for us and our salvation, lived and died and rose again and lives evermore; and in the Holy Spirit, who renews, comforts and inspires our souls.
*Benediction (Please gather in a circle.)
