    June 29, 2014 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time


    Silent Prayer

    It doesn’t take much, O Lord, for us to be reminded of how we fall short of

    holiness. Only say one word to us and we are brought to our knees.

    Yet you have made us in your image and we reclaim that creation today. Fill

    us, mold us and heal us, forgiving Lord. Amen.


    Welcome and Announcements

    We welcome you in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ! Please sign the

    guest book in the narthex so we can send you a welcome packet.

    Gathering of Prayer Concerns and Joys

    Please raise your hand to share your joys or concerns to be included in

    the prayers of the people this day. You may also write your concern on

    the pink sheets and hand to the Pastor. Please mail a prayer card from

    the narthex to your loved one.

    Centering Music - “Gather Us In” STF #2236

    *Please stand for items marked with an asterisk.

  • Call to Worship Leader: Troubled prophets and struggling families, you listen to our voices, whoever we are. People: There is no one like you, God of the listening heart. Leader: Those who live in fear, and those who look for signs, you fill us with hope and surprises. People: There is no one like you, God of steadfast love. Leader: Seekers of power, as well as those who serve the vulnerable, you challenge us to use our gifts for others. People: There is no one like you, God of all people.

    *Hymn - “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” GTG #267

    *Prayer of Confession Leader: We struggle daily with that human tendency to always do wrong, say hurtful things, turn our back to others. But God will never hold our sins against us or our foolish nature. Let us confess to our God, who frees us forever from judgment, as we pray,

    ALL: In baptism, we are promised new life, God of grace, yet we continue to focus on those old ways which are so comfortable and seductive. We are so good at fooling others that we are convinced we can trick you as well. We have been called to walk with you, and run down those paths paved with foolishness and fears.

    Forgive us, God of steadfast love. You have claimed our lives in baptism, so we might be set free from sin and be raised to new life. Just as you save us, so give us the strength to be willing to take up whatever task you give us, and the faith to be willing to lose our lives for others, so we might find life forever with you, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

    Silence is kept

  • *Assurance of Pardon Leader: This is the good news: God hears our prayers, our cries, our hearts. And, in Christ, we receive new life. We are free, free to walk in the Light of the Lord. People: So, this is what we will do. We will open our hearts to God's grace; we will live as people who have died to sin and who live for Christ. Amen.

    *Musical response - “Lord, Prepare Me” GTG #701

    *Sharing of the Peace Leader: The peace of Christ be with you. People: And also with you.


    Children’s Sermon (Children Pre-K through 5th Grade may leave for Sunday School.)

    Special Music

    Old Testament Lesson: 2 Samuel 11:1-4 (page 281)

    *Hymn - “Lead On, O King Eternal” GTG #269

    New Testament Lesson: Revelation 3:14-22 (p. 1119)

    “Theme Song “Seven Deadly Sins” Words by James Mitchell (sung to the tune of “Gilligan’s Island”)

    Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale Of Seven Deadly Sins. Each week a different character, and the fix they're in. King David and old Gilligan are not a likely pair, but look within, beneath the skin to find the sin they share (To find the sin they share).

    King David let sloth carry him into adultery, a murdered friend, and in the end a shattered family (A shattered family)

    (continues on next page)

  • We run aground when we are found inviting these things in,

    There's Sloth, of course, and Gluttony, pure anger, and our pride,

    The lure of Lust, Pride and Envy, The Seven Deadly Sins!

    Sermon: “Sin of Sloth: Gilligan and David ”

    The Rev. Dr. Katherine G. Killebrew


    *Litany of Faith

    Leader: “Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the

    Lord.” (Romans 12:11 )

    People: Move us from lukewarm Christians to a church all fired


    Leader: “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than

    pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of

    righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

    (Hebrews 12:11)

    People: Stir us up O Lord to know the life that is full and


    Leader: “So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those

    who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”

    (Hebrews 6:12)

    People: Let us live up to and live into the calling you have given

    to us.

    Leader: “Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; you

    complacent daughters, give ear to my speech. In little

    more than a year you will shudder, you complacent

    women; for the grape harvest fails, the fruit harvest will

    not come.” (Isaiah 32:9-10)

    Women: Let us rise up and be courageous and strong , serving

    our God our community, family and world.


  • Leader: “And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle,

    encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient

    with them all.” (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

    Men: Let us be bold Men of God, faithfully leading our

    church, our families and the world in the name of


    Leader: “... if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and

    especially for members of his household, he has denied

    the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

    (1 Timothy 5:8)

    Children/Youth: Help us to be helpful and careful of our

    family. Lord help us to be faithful girls and boys as

    we serve our family, work at school and be kind to our


    Leader: “Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor,

    doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may

    have something to share with anyone in need.”

    (Ephesians 4:28)

    People: Remind us daily of our calling to be your children,

    faithful, graceful and generous.

    Leader: “For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and

    the love that you have shown for his name in serving

    the saints, as you still do. And we desire each one of you

    to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance

    of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish,

    but imitators of those who through faith and patience

    inherit the promises.” (Hebrews 6:10-12)

    People: Let us live into the legacy of those faithful members

    who paved the way for us. May we boldly step into the

    future of our faith. Amen

    Offering “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such

    sacrifices are pleasing to God.” Hebrews 13:16
