* Processional #585                                         This Little Light of Mine


* Call to Worship (based on Psalm 8)


            L: O God how majestic is your work.

            P: You have set your glory above the heavens.

            L: Out of the mouths of babes and infants come songs of joy,

            P: their choruses drown out enemy talk.

            L: When I look up at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the     moon and the stars that you have established;

            P: what are human beings that you are mindful of them,

            mortals that you care for them?

            L: Yet you have crowned them with glory and honor.

            P: O God how majestic if your name! Amen.

A message from Mary Justice.  I am beginning to work on next year’s Usher/ Liturgist schedule.  I will be placing the current list outside of the church library. If you would like to be a Liturgist or Usher or would like taken off of the list please add or subtract you name.  I am also looking for those interested in being on the substitute list. In December we try to have a different family act as our ushers each week. This could be actual families or bible study families etc.  I am placing the list outside of the church library for you to sign up on. Thank you in advance. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

Anyone that donates can get with Karen for a tax donation form.
