+Call to Worship                                                                 Aaron Ambler           

Leader: Bless our God, O peoples,

People: let the sound of his praise be heard,

Leader: who has kept us among the living,

People: and has not let our feet slip.

We thank you, God, for the gift of life and the joy we find in living it—its good times and bad times, its sunny days and dark, all of its ups and downs.  We come today with our heavy load of uncertainty and confusion, sins and failures, concerns and troubles, to rest ourselves in your presence.  Help us to relax and to leave our heavy loads with you, who are able to bear them all with so much more strength.  Help us to turn from anxiety to thanksgiving, from insecurity to confidence, from helplessness to strength, from despair to hope, from inner turmoil to peace of mind, and from distress to joy.  Forgive us for our lack of faith, which causes us so much misery and which maximizes all our difficulties.  Let all our problems and doubts find their solution in the death of our Lord Jesus Christ upon Calvary, in his resurrection from the grave, and in the eternal joy of life in your kingdom, which shall endure forever and ever.  Amen.

v A donation has been given to the church in loving memory of Janice Hayes by Jim, Gay and Lynda on Mother’s Day.

v Ronceverte Community Garden has raised beds dedicated to the Ronceverte Food Bank.  We are looking for a small troop of gardeners to plant, tend and harvest these beds.  According to Dreama West, Ronceverte Food Bank Director, certain fresh produce is seldom available through the Food Bank.  This project will help fill this void.  Pepper, cucumber & tomato plants will be provided.  If you or your group are interested in being part of this troop of gardeners please contact Pam Arnold at 304-647-8553.

v Be sure to see the beautiful roses blooming along the ramp entrance as you leave today. 

v Don’t forget Alma Hogsett’s birthday party at Greenbrier Manor June 3 from 2 to 4 pm.  Please enter around back at the door near the picnic table with the balloons.
