CALL TO WORSHIP: from Psalm 16
Keep me safe, O God, for in You I take refuge.
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me, even at night.
I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord:
apart from You I have no good thing.”
The sorrows of those will increase who run after other gods.
I will not even take up their names on my lips.
Lord, You have assigned me my portion and my cup;
You have made my lot secure.
I have set the Lord always before me.
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices.
You have made known to me the path of life.
INVOCATION: Dr. Domske
* Hymn “Rock of Ages #438
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION: (UNISON)
Lord of life, we are small. Yet we act as if we are in control.
We don’t like it when things don’t go our way. We blame others
And we blame You. Forgive our foolish pride and arrogance.
May we let Your love wash us clean and show us a new way to live, reconciled to others and to You---everyday and in every way. Help us to work to be more like Jesus each day.
We are confident that You love us even more than we love

Saying from Keith McGill’s List; He spent 20 years traveling with the Gas company. When he saw a church sign that had a saying on it, he would write it down. He has collected 8 pages of sayings.
1. Instead of putting others in their place – put yourself in their place.
2. If you want to feel rich, count all the things you have that money can’t buy.
