We have some individuals who would like to come to church but they are in need of transportation. We are hoping to offer the bus for those individuals, but we are in need of drivers. We would like to get 10 – 12 drivers, so each person would only drive once a quarter. You do not need a CDL license to drive the bus and we will be happy to train you on how to drive the bus (it’s really not difficult to drive).
Call to Worship - I Corinthians 13
1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a
resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I
have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may
boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no
record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are
tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I
know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Scripture Reading - Romans 8
1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will
be revealed in us.
19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
(Continued on next page)
24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for
what they already have?
25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to
pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have
been called according to his purpose.
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be
32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also,
along with him, graciously give us all things?
33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who
34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that,
who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution
or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the
present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Invitation Hymn - How Great Thou Art #4, verses 1, 4 (Both services)
All believers in Christ are invited to partake. You do not need to be a member of our church, or any church to share in communion with us. The bread and the cup are taken in unison following the words of institution.
Mother Teresa said that the hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. There are so many people hungry for love. It may not always be obvious, but so many people are in desperate need of a sense they are loved. It is the great yearning of every human heart. Come to this table and receive love.
The Lord's Prayer (spoken in unison)
Our Father, who are in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, they kingdom come, they 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 in to temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Words of institution for the Bread:
"This is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me."
Words of institution for the Cup:
"This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me
