CONFESSION OF SIN
We confess, O Lord of all who live, that we have come so very short of all that you intend for our lives. Turn our lives, we pray, to the work you have given to us. May we come to know the true joy of bringing hope, joy and love to the dispossessed of our world. Turn our hearts from self to service, and give us strength to work for life and liberty for all Your children. Amen.

SERMON – “The Older the Fiddle, The Better the Tune” Elder Ralph Moulder
L: Christians, what do you believe?
P: 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 Spirit, 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 Spirit; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
