*Call To Worship
Pastor: May all who enter here experience peace!
People: May all who enter here find rest!
Pastor: May all who enter here feel safe!
People: May all who enter here know that God dwells among us!
All: Praise Be To God!
*Hymn “Within Your Shelter, Loving God” No. 212
Responsive Reading Psalm 40 OT Pg. 619
God grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time. Accepting Lordship as a pathway to peace. Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that you will make all things right if I surrender to your will. So that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with you forever in the next. Amen.
Something For the Child In All of Us

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever. 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.
