We are set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright: Grant us such strength and protection, to support us in all danger, and carry us through all temptations; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer 

The Fellowship of the Word 

*Hymn               "Peace in the Valley"               by Thomas A. Dorsey

There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
no trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me

Scripture Readings   Psalm 23

A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 
2   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters; 
3   he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
   for his name’s sake. 

4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
   I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff—
   they comfort me.  

5 You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows. 
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
   my whole life long.

Sermon      Rev. Francine P. White
                      
The Sending Forth

*Closing Hymn                               “Standing In the Need of Prayer"

It's me, It's me O Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It's me, It's me O Lord
Standing in the need of prayer


* Benediction
