*HYMN No. 487                                                    When Morning Gilds the Skies

*CORPORATE PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison)

 God, our shepherd, we have strayed like lost sheep, wandering through life, far from home. Often in our wanderings we find ourselves in places where we ought not be, trapped and unable to turn ourselves around. Hear our cries of lostness; come rescue us, forgive our sins,and be our guide. At other times, through fear, we huddle in the safety of the fold; not daring to venture out into your pastures where we're called to live in freedom. Come challenge us, give us courage, and be our guide. Amen.

*KYRIE ELEISON

               Lord, have mercy upon us.                                                         

               Christ, have mercy upon us.                                                         

                Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Leader:              The Lord is our strength and our song.
People:   He has become our salvation.

Leader:              Friends, believe the good news of salvation:

In Jesus Christ we are forgiven!

*RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE    (Hymn No. 322)

Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me;

             Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

             Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.

             Spirit of the living God, Fall afresh on me.

 RESPONDING TO GOD’S WORD

 *THE APOSTLES’ 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 Ghost,

    born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,

    was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell;

    the third day he rose again from the dead;

    he ascended into heaven,

    and sitteth on 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 Ghost;

    the holy catholic church;

    the communion of saints,

    the forgiveness of sins;

    the resurrection of the body;

    and the life everlasting.  Amen

PROVIDENCE PRESBYTERY MISSION TRIP TO GUATEMALA

A group of travelers from the Presbytery will work with Dr. Pedro Palacios (“Tito”) in late July.  Part of the group will work with teachers in schools in the remote part of Guatemala near the Caribbean coast.  Another group will help with an eye clinic in the same area.

Do you have eye glasses that you are not using that you could donate?  Reading glasses are needed more than distance glasses, but they will take whatever is available.  There is a box in the Vaughan Room for these. We will deliver them to the Presbytery office by June 1.

GREETERS AND USHERS:                                            Jack and Carol Leedy
