LOVE LIFTED ME
Verse 1
I was sinking deep in sin, Far from
The peaceful shore, Very deeply stained
Within, sinking to rise no more;
But the Master of the sea heard my
Despairing cry, from the waters lifed me -
Now safe am I.
Chorus
Love lifed me, love lifed me,
When nothing else could help,
Love lifed me. Love lifed me,
Love lifed me, When nothing
Else could help, Love lifed me.
Verse 2
All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him
I’ll cling in His blessed presence live,
Ever His praises sing. Love so mighty
And so true merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too, To Him belongs.
Verse 3
Souls in danger, look above, Jesus
Completely saves; He will lif you
By His love out of the angry waves.
He’s the Master of the sea, billows His
Will obey; He your Savior wants to be –
Be saved today.

LUKE 14:12-24 (NIV)
12
Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your
friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatves, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they
may invite you back and so you will be repaid.
13
But when you give a banquet, invite the
poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,
14
and you will be blessed. Although they cannot
repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrecton of the righteous.”
15
When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the
one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.”
16
Jesus replied: “A certain man
was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests.
17
At the tme of the banquet he
sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
18
“But they all alike began to make excuses. The frst said, ‘I have just bought a feld, and
I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’
19
“Another said, ‘I have just bought fve yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them
out. Please excuse me.’
20
“Stll another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
21
“The
servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became
angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town
and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
22
“‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is stll room.’
23
“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel
them to come in, so that my house will be full.
24
I tell you, not one of those who were
invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”

Memorial Day Litany
Minister: For those who have given their lives for their country and whose graves we visit this Memorial Day
weekend, that they may rest in God's peace and that their sacrifce may inspire in us who live a commitment to the
ideals for which they perished, we pray to the Lord.
People: Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister: For our veterans, whom we have sent to far countries on our behalf, and who for us have ofen endured
fear, trauma, and sorrow that no human should have to face, that they may receive healing of their hearts and a
welcome home from their towns, their families, and their churches, we pray to the Lord.
People: Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister: For our men and women serving under orders this day, especially those who may be in situatons of
danger or captvity, that they may be inspired by the ideal of duty, may conduct themselves with honor, may love
country second only to God, and may receive strength equal to every challenge they face, we pray to the Lord.
People: Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister: For families of men and women now on actve duty, families of veterans, civilian families who have
sufered in tme of war, and especially those families whose tables will always have an empty chair, we pray to the
Lord.
People: Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister: For our leaders, who have the power to promote peace and justce or to extnguish life itself from our
planet, that any and all decisions relatng to the use of armed forces may be preceded by prayer and accompanied
by agony, we pray to the Lord.
People: Lord, hear our prayer.
Minister: For ourselves, our congregaton and pastor and all persons of faith, that recognizing the expression in
works which must result from an experience of faith, we may be builders of community as well as seekers of
salvaton, we may seek outer peace as well as inner harmony, and justce for our world as well as fairness for
ourselves, to the end that the dwelling of God may be with us, and we shall be God's people, that the former things
pass away and war shall be no more, we pray to the Lord.
All: Amen.

Family,
Thank God for you. You are so close to
reaching our goal of $5 million . . . As of May
21
st
, we are just short of 95% of our goal, or
$4,724,719! 1,241 members/families
have made that possible.
Also, as of May 21
st
, 2,342 members have opted-
in. That means that if just the remaining 1,101
members who have already opted-in pledged
just $20 a month for the next 3 years, we would
easily exceed our goal.
God is doing a great work through the members
of Trinity United Church of Christ!
Stay informed…

Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are
in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been
burned with fre. Come, let us rebuild the wall of
Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.”
. . . They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they
began this good work.

NEWS YOU CAN USE: GET COVERED ILLINOIS
Did you miss the Healthcare Enrollment deadline? The 2014 Open Enrollment Period for Healthcare.gov
has ofcially ended as of March 31
st
. It will re-open November 15, 2014 for coverage beginning in 2015.
Medicaid-eligible Illinoisans can enroll in Medicaid at any tme. And there are some specifc situatons that
trigger Special Enrollment Periods, listed on the next page, in which you can stll enroll for 2014.
What if I haven’t heard anything since March 31
st
? If healthcare.gov deemed you eligible for Medicaid,
the informaton was supposed to be sent to the state Medicaid department. In some cases, the
informaton did not come through, and in others, there is simply a delay at the Department of Human
Services. Individuals in this situaton should call DHS at 800-843-6154 and, following the automated
prompts, dial (1), then (1), then (4), then (3), then (1) to check if their applicaton is in the state’s system
for processing. If not, you can apply for Medicaid directly at www.abe.illinois.gov.
Can I Appeal? If you don’t appear to qualify for a special enrollment period, or if you apply and the
Marketplace says you don’t qualify for either coverage or premium tax credits, you can appeal a decision
to deny you a special enrollment period.

“Loving God, Living Green, Liberatng All”
LOVING GOD
January • Deuteronomy 6:5 (NIV)
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your strength.
February • Psalm 119:105-106 (NIV)
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my
path. I have taken an oath and confrmed it, that
I will follow your righteous laws.
March • John 15:10 (NIV)
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my
love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands
and remain in his love.
April • Romans 14:19 (NIV)
Let us therefore make every efort to do
what leads to peace and to mutual
edifcaton.
LIVING GREEN
May • Psalm 24:1 (NIV)
The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the
world, and all who live in it.
June • Genesis 1:29-30 (NIV)
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing
plant on the face of the whole earth and every
tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be
yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth
and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures
that move along the ground—everything that
has the breath of life in it—I give every green
plant for food.” And it was so.
July • Job 38:4-7 (NIV)
Where were you when I laid the earth’s
foundatons? Tell me if you understand. Who
marked of its dimensions? Surely you know! Who
stretched a measuring line across it? On what
were its footngs set or who laid its cornerstone
while the morning stars sang together for joy!
August • Deuteronomy 24:19 (NIV)
When you are harvestng in your feld and you
overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave

so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the
work of your hands.
LIBERATING ALL
September • Galatans 5:1 (NIV)
It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand
frm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened
again by a yoke of slavery.
October • Galatans 5:13 (NIV)
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be
free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the
fesh; rather, serve one another humbly in Love.
November • Galatans 3:28 (NIV)
There is neither Jew nor Gentle, neither slave nor
free, nor is there male and female, for you are all
one in Christ Jesus.
December • Luke 4:18-19 (NIV)
The spirit of the Lord is on me, because he
anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he
has sent me to proclaim freedom for the captves
and recovery of sight to the blind, to set the
oppressed free, to proclaim the favorable year of
the Lord.
