ANTHEM                   “With a Voice of Singing”                             Chancel Choir


God calls us, “Come to me, on the mountain, in the forest, on the trail.”

     “Come to me, across the ocean, across the river, across the street.”

   “Come to me, at the kitchen table, in the grocery store, on the Web.”

Come to me, under the overpass, in the shelter, on the soup line.”

God invites us, “Come, be with me, share the day with me.” 

God invites us, “Share the weeks, the year, your whole life with me.”  

We come in answer.

*COMMUNION HYMN #612 (blue hymnal) (stz. 1, 3, 4) “I Come With Joy”







The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to God.

Let us give thanks to the Holy One.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.


Like them, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven, we praise your

name and join the unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of hosts: Heaven and earth are full of your glory!

Glory be to you, O Lord most high!


We seek to listen to him and we remember him now in the meal he gave us, as

we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Dying you destroyed our death; rising you restored our life. Lord Jesus,

come in glory!

By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry

to all the world.

Blessing and honor and glory and power be yours, Holy God, now and forever.




COMMUNION ANTHEM           “A Communion Meditation” Chancel Choir


A Time of Sending Forth


*SONG OF PARTING #2070 (black song book) “He Is Exalted”

*Indicates Congregation stand, if you are comfortable doing so. Large print hymnals and bulletins are available, as are hearing devices.  Please ask an usher for assistance.  Nursery care provided for 0-4 year old children 8:45 - 11:45 AM. **Please turn off or mute your cell phones. Thank you


Summer Camp – Time to start planning!

Camp brochures should be here – if you did not get one in the mail you can find them on the bulletin board as you come in to the church or in the Education Office.  Deadline for the Early Bird price is April 30th.  The church & UMW will take care of ½ of the early bird cost of one camp per youth.   If your youth is going to more than one camp you are responsible for the cost of the other camps.  If you register after April 30th – the church & UMW will only pay for ½ of the early bird cost.  You will be responsible for the difference between early bird and full price.

The registration process is a little different this year.   You will need to call Lisa in the office to get the church code that you will enter on the registration form this code will automatically subtract the church’s portion from your payment.  Full payment is due when you register this year. To do this you will be able to select one of 2 options:  to pay in full or pay monthly with automatic credit card payments.  If you choice the automatic credit card payments the first payment will be for $75 and balance of the amount you owe will be divided equally by the months remaining through August (ex: if you register in March and the camp you register for is $300, the church code will lower your payment to $150.  $75 will be charged to your credit card at the time of registration, the remaining $75 will be divided by 5months so at the first of each month from April to August $15 will be charged to your credit card.)  You will be able to register more than one person at a time but if you are registering the same person for more than one camp you need to do a separate registration online for the second camp.  If you have questions about this process you can call Lisa in the office or Diane Kisch at 660-1242.

The Conference runs a Cross State Bus to Storm Mountain – if you plan to have your youth ride the bus you must mark it on your registration form.

We encourage you to attend camps that other youth in your grades are going to – hopefully we can carpool whenever possible.  Remember if your child is riding with someone it is common courtesy to help cover the cost of gas.  If you plan to use the church van – it needs to be half full (8 people or more – if you only have 7 and feel you need to use the church van check with the chairperson of the Trustees, Pastor Bob or Rev Ron).  Those riding in the van are responsible for gas.  Lisa in the office needs to know if you would like your youth to ride in the church van or carpool with others.  She will be able to tell you if anyone else is signed up for a camp you are thinking about. It is very helpful if Lisa gets a copy of your registration forms so she knows what camps you youth are going to.

For the 1st – 3rd graders we need to have 1 adult attend camp with every 5 campers.  There is a cost for Shepherds that attend SonShine camp (K & 1st graders) & DaySpring (2nd & 3rd graders). 

  Remember the grade listed for each camp is the grade the camper is currently in.
