Another year has passed in our service to you, O God. We have taught Your children and ministered to Your flock. You have blessed those efforts that we have put forth in Your name.

Prayer of the Congregation
Father, You present many challenges to us as we travel through our lives in Your service. Wars still rage overseas. Calamities abroad and even here in our beloved land stun us in their magnitude. Friends fall ill and are taken from us. And yet we know you are with us in this, the “spring time” of this congregation. New friends are among us. Believers continue to be baptized in Your Name. Youngsters continue to be guided toward a knowledge of Your Truth and new members are added to Your Church. In a short while we will select a new pastor who will guide us in Your Spirit. 2000 years ago the Holy Spirit appeared in the form of tongues of flame over the heads of the disciples of Jesus and 3000 people were converted on that same day. We pray that you bring those tongues of fire over us. Come, Holy Spirit, that we may see Your Kingdom grow here and throughout the world. Amen.
Scripture Acts 2:1-21 Pg. 159 NT

Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen
*Prayer of Dedication
Father of us all and Leader of this, Your Church, we ask that the Treasures collected here be used for the betterment of all and especially for the improvement of the lives of children throughout the world. Amen.

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Penn Yan. We are glad you joined us and hope you’ll feel at home, as we celebrate our faith and praise God together. In the pew in front of you, you will find a “get-to-know-you” card. Please take a moment to fill it out and place it in the offering plate.
We invite you to bring your children to the nursery during the service for a safe and Christian environment so that you may more fully experience Worship. Following today’s service please come to enjoy coffee, refreshments and fellowship in the Great Room.
For your convenience hearing devices are available. Please see an usher for assistance.
