    Prelude Ryan Kelly, organ Welcome and Announcements Silent Meditation


    Leader: Christians, lift up your hearts!

    Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord.

    Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God!

    Congregation: It is right to give him thanks and praise.



    Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven Hymn 76


    Exodus 20:1-17

    Leader: And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

    Congregation: You shall have no other gods before me.

    Leader: You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    Congregation: You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    Congregation stands.

    Leader: You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord

    will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

    Congregation: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.

    Leader: On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.

    Congregation: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

    Leader: Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

    Congregation: You shall not murder.

    Leader: You shall not commit adultery.

    Congregation: You shall not steal.

    Leader: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

    Congregation: You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”

    Noelle Kelly, soprano Cry No More Dan Forrest

    In the shadow where we linger, in this darkness we call home, where the sighs are deep and doubtful and our aspirations groan—all is not in vain, beloved, our travail is not unknown. Christ within us, Christ among us, Christ the first and Christ the last; Love Incarnate, hold your children till the storm of life is past.

    Though we have not faith to seek him, Christ himself will draw us near; deep, abid-ing rays of mercy cast their light on lonely fear. Cry no more, ye poor and weary; our redeeming Lord is here. Christ within us, Christ among us, Christ the first and Christ the last; Love Incarnate, hold your children till the storm of life is past.

    Sure defender, never failing, radiant Savior, holy friend, gift of glory, hope of heaven, call us now to faith again. Alleluia! Blest compassion, grace is shining without end! Christ within us, Christ among us, Christ the first and Christ the last; Love Incarnate, hold your children till the storm of life is past. Cry no more. – Johanna Anderson

    1) Do you acknowledge yourselves to be sinners in the sight of God, justly deserving His dis-pleasure, and without hope save in His sovereign mercy?

    2) Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation as He is offered in the Gospel?

    3) Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes the followers of Christ?

    4) Do you promise to support the Church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?

    5) Do you submit yourselves to the government and discipline of the Church, and promise to study its purity and peace?

    Mike and Julie Sulc, Life to Life Africa

    Thank you for the prayer support over the past month! We certainly felt God's hand with us. It was my longest trip yet to Zimbabwe as I ministered with the ISU Navigators team for three weeks and then had the privilege to minister with my family for two weeks.

    God richly blessed our efforts as we witnessed students praying to receive Christ, believers en-couraged in their relationships with Christ, and young people challenged to labor for Christ. Pre-school children were loved, while young adults were trained in carpentry as well as in how to compost and grow vegetables. Corn was harvested the old fashioned way -- by hand. We are glad to report that the families we serve harvested enough to last them for four months. Thank you for praying for rain this past season. God certainly provided much needed rain.

    My daughters, Johanna & Micaela, heard testimonies of God's faithfulness in the midst of chal-lenging circumstances from our LTLA team. They also taught the pre-school children some new songs as well as teaching the OT & NT books of the Bible songs for the high school group. My wife, Julie, joined them in painting one of the new rooms in the Life Discipleship Center. She led the Women of Hope group in looking at El Roi, the God who sees, in the story of Hagar. With our LTLA team, Julie shared what she has been learning related to racial reconciliation, which was followed by a special time of prayer for healing. We believe this time together was a result of your prayers related to Isaiah 58:6-12.

    Our trip ended with our family spending several days in Victoria Falls with Arthur & Mildred Nhau and their children, Donnell & Daisy. They lead the LTLA ministry in Chinhoyi. It was a great experience to get time away to deepen our relationships with one another as we witnessed the beauty of God's creation. As David Livingstone said when he witnessed Mosi-oa-tunya ("the smoke that thunders"), as Victoria Falls was called, "Scenes so lovely must be gazed upon by an-gels in their flight." We certainly marveled at the sight of not only the spectacular water falls but also the amazing diversity of the animals we saw in the wild. God, the creator and restorer of it all, is awesome!

    We are always happy to have you with us and to enjoy your fellowship. If you have questions, please feel free to speak with one of our pastors or one of our elders. To help us learn how we might serve you, please fill out the Visitor Card in the pew back and drop it in the offering basket or leave it at the Welcome Desk.

    Families with Young Children Children are a gift to the Church and are warmly welcome at Proclamation. Before worship on Sundays, children of all ages are invited to attend graded Sunday School classes from 9:30-10:30 a.m. They may also recite their suggested memory verses, catechism questions, and hymns at 9:20 before classes begin. Classroom assignments are posted in the Education Wing. Nursery is availa-ble during the Sunday School hour for infants and toddlers.

    We welcome even the littlest ones in our worship services. We know children’s needs vary by fam-ily and age, so we offer nursery during morning worship for children up to 2 years old. We have a “nursing/cry room” at the rear of the sanctuary for parents who need to attend to active infants, and we have screens showing the service in the slate hallway. While we encourage children to at-tend all of worship, we also offer the opportunity for children ages 4-7 years old to be dismissed mid-service for a children’s worship time led by our Christian Education Director, Dave Money-maker.

    Pink Prayer Request Forms Proclamation's staff and elders are happy to lift your concerns and praises to the Lord in their prayers. Please note that the pink prayer request forms have been moved from the pew backs to the narthex table. You can place your completed form in the box on the table, place it in the offer-ing plate or hand it to one of our deacons. You are also welcome to contact Pam in the church office by phone or e-mail and she will convey your message to the staff and elders.
