Welcome to Trinity
United Methodist Church
Twenty-Second Sunday
November 9, 2014
Trinity United Methodist Church
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Rev. Penny Ford, Senior Pastor
Dr. Kevin Chance, Director of Music Ministries

Dr. Philip Westbrook
We gather today, O Lord of Life, seeking fullness.
Not the fullness our world offers, but fullness that comes
from You.
We spend so much of our lives on things that do not count.
Things that promise much and give little.
Help us now- today- to find fulfillment in Your love,
May we discover all you have to give,
And offer back to you our prayers, presence, gifts, service and time.
Lift us O God, to a deeper place of living, where work, family,
community and faith find wholeness in you.
We offer our whole selves to You with thanksgiving.
Glory be to God. Amen!
Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE November 9, 2014 - Worship Service 10:30 a.m.
Surely The Presence (sing twice)
Renunciation of Sin and Profession of Faith
(Congregational Response)
Do you, as Christ’s Body, the church, reaffirm both your rejection
of sin and your commitment to Christ?
We do.
Will you nurture one another in the Christian faith and life
and include Charlotte Lee Grimsley now before you in your care?
With God’s help we will proclaim the good news and live
according to the example of Christ. We will surround
Charlotte with a community of love and forgiveness,
that she may grow in her trust of God. We will pray for her,
that she may be a true disciple who walks in the way that
leads to life.
Thanksgiving over the Water
Baptism of Charlotte Lee Grimsley
Commendation and Welcome (Congregational Response)
Members of the household of God, I commend Charlotte to your
love and care. Do all in your power to increase her faith, confirm her
hope and perfect her in love.
We give thanks for all that God has already given you and we
welcome you in Christian love. As members together with you
in the body of Christ and in this congregation of The
United Methodist Church we renew our covenant
faithfully to participate in the ministries of the church by
our prayers, our presence, our gifts and our service, that in
everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
After the Children’s Moment, children ages four to second grade are invited to go to the
Children’s Church with Ms. Sandy Wilson. They are also welcome to stay in the sanctuary
if they wish. Nursery is provided for children three and under.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise God, all creatures here below;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise God, the source of all our gifts!
Praise Jesus Christ whose power uplifts!
Praise the Spirit, Holy Spirit!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by
the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius
Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from
the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of
God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the
quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the
communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection
of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Children of the Heavenly Father
-- Mack Wilberg
This is the word of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.

Trinity’s big wooden doors on the front
and the two sides of the sanctuary are
unique and irreplaceable. Painting
contractor Clyde Biggs, brother of
Wimbreth Chism and son of the late
Dulcie Biggs, has recently refinished
these doors. It was an expensive, long,
hard job, but we appreciate Clyde’s
workmanship and his employees’
attention to detail to keep our beautiful
wooden doors in good condition. Clyde
grew up in Trinity. He reminisced that
he was a small child when the building
was under construction. He would jump
and play in the wooden forms used to
build the big front steps.
