QUESTIONS OF LIFE and FAITH

If God wants to be known, why not show up?

Does God want to be known; does God real­ly care?

Why does God make it so dif­fi­cult to find Him?

PASTORAL PRAYER AND 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.

*HYMN No. 500  (v. 1,2 & 4)      Spir­it Of God, Descend Upon My Heart

*THE SENDING                     Go Now in Peace 

Go now in peace, nev­er be afraid.  God will go with you each hour of ev’ry day.

Go now in faith, stead­fast, strong and true.  Know He will guide you in all you do.  

Go now in love, and show you believe.  Reach out to oth­ers so all the world can see.  

God will be there watch­ing from above.  Go now in peace, in faith, and in love.
