+Call to Worship                                                                 Aaron Ambler     

Leader: O LORD, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.

People: You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.

Leader: Even before a word is on my tongue, O LORD, you know it completely. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.

People: Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it.

Leader: For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

ALL: Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.


Our Creator and Redeemer, we praise you for your mighty works.  You have created the cosmos, yet you also create each of our lives.  Even in the earliest moments of life, while we were too tiny to even be seen, your awesome hand was crafting us, preparing us, loving us. Such love is too great to be hidden or ignored—yet how often we have done just that to your love. We who have been the recipients of your grace have refused to share the good news with others.  Forgive us, O Lord, for our reckless disregard of your love.  Help us, O Lord, to become faithful witnesses—allowing your love to overflow our lives and touch the lives of those around us.  Make us instruments of your grace, as we proclaim the love of the One in whose name we are privileged to pray.  Amen

v George “Mutt” Morris became a member of Trinity in 1937 and remained an active member for 65 years, until his passing on September 27, 2012.  Gloria, his wife of 58 years, became a member in 1958 and remained an active member until her passing last year.  They were both pillars of our church for many years and will be fondly remembered.  With the estate settled, their family presented Trinity United Methodist Church with a check of $30,000.00 to the Building Fund on December 26, 2017.  We are very grateful and much appreciative that this church meant so much to Mutt and Gloria!
