As Abraham and Sarah welcomed the Lord by the oaks of Mamre and were told they would have a son (Genesis 18), I welcome you to worship, and we welcome God among us. Let us listen for God’s good news for today!
CALL TO WORSHIP
As we gather this day, each of us brings something to worship –
We bring the burdens of the week.
We bring prayers of hope, and prayers of anguish.
We bring our voices, and our offerings, and our questions.
We bring our faith, tattered or whole as it may be.
We bring this to each other and to God, whom we worship today.
Welcome & Announcements
Opening Hymn No.191
“Jesus Loves Me”
Affirmation 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; the third day he rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

Call to Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer:
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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Our clothing giveaway is set for Saturday, Sept. 28.
A box will be placed in the foyer for your donations.
Thank you in advance for all you do.
Please consider picking up additional nonperishables the next time you buy groceries to donated to our Blessing Box.
We are serving our neighbors in need with food, hygiene supplies, and Bibles. Every donation helps.
As more people become aware of our Blessing Box and take advantage of it, the need for supplies grows.
Thank you for all you do.
Our Sunday School will be putting together small, basic, first aid kits to include in the box, so you might consider Band Aids, antibiotic cream (Neosporin), tweezers, etc.
