Worship Bulletin – June 22, 2014
Christ is risen! The season of Easter marks the time between Jesus’ resurrection and his ascension – during which the disciples came to understand the purpose of Jesus’ ministry and his identity. Join with us to celebrate the wonders of Christ’s resurrection, and what it means for the resurrection life of the Church!

Lord’s Day, June 22, 2014 – 10:30 AM Worship
Welcome And Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship – from Psalm 95:6-7; 133, NRSV
How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!
It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard,
on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.
It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion.
For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore.
Come, let us all worship and bow down together,
let us kneel together before the LORD, our maker. For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
*Praise Music- “The Lord Reigns” & “Blessed Be Your Name”

*Song of Thanksgiving – “Give Thanks” – #170
Give thanks with a grateful heart; Give thanks to the Holy One,
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son. (repeat)
And now let the weak say, “I am strong,” Let the poor say, “I am rich,”
because of what the Lord has done for us. Give Thanks! (repeat)

June Benevolence: One Great Hour of Sharing
Contributions to One Great Hour of Sharing make a difference in the lives of people. Church World Service, a division of the National Council of Churches, with overseas partner churches and church councils are often the first on the scene following a disaster of natural or human origin. Local church leaders identify the needs of their people. Priorities are set to bring long-term solutions that will improve the quality of life for individuals and communities around the world. One Great Hour of Sharing, nearly 50 years old, continues to respond to needs equally critical as when it was first created.
