To those who feel the need of light; to those who find doubts and fears in their hearts; to those who need courage for their daily tasks; to those who feel lonely and friendless; to those who wish to give service; to all who, in faith, will support and involve themselves to the limit of their ability in the work of the Kingdom of God which this church undertakes; to all who want rest, peace, and happiness--this church invites you to the fellowship of Jesus.

KNOLLWOOD AT WORSHIP GATHERING FOR WORSHIP Please silence all electronic devices. Thank you!

THE CHIMES Three chimes are sounded, awakening us to the presence of God, alerting us to the voice of Christ, centering us in the embrace of the Spirit. As we gather, we present ourselves “as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our spiritual worship.”

†THE PRELUDE “Morning Has Broken”..........................................................................................Dale Wood Henry Tysinger, organ

THE CALL TO WORSHIP ........................................................................... Kenneth A. Wilson One: We are here because God has called us to join in the dance of discipleship. All: We are here to lift up our voices in praise and devotion, and to dance like David before the ark. One: Yet we realize that this dance can be dangerous, discipleship involves risk, following Jesus means walking in the way of the cross. All: Still we come with a desire to dance, a willingness to take risks, a yearning to follow Jesus. May God be honored by all that we say and do here and by the manner in which we continue this dance in the routine of our everyday lives!

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION (Unison) ............................................................ Jesse Sorrell Eternal God, we long to know and live your truth, But we are prone to listen to what is said loudly rather than what is said softly.

Forgive our hardness of hearing and hardness of heart in listening for your Word.

THE SILENT CONFESSION THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON One: Hear the Good News of the Gospel! Jesus said, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free" (John 8:31b-32).

* Those who are able will stand. † Ushers will seat those waiting. Hearing aids and large print hymns are available from the ushers. 2

ABOUT OUR WORSHIP

Our pastor, Bob Setzer, is in Nicaragua with Mark Jensen and Beth Fields this week. They are investigating a possible missions partnership for Knollwood. (www.amoshealth.org) We welcome today guest organist Henry Tysinger. Mr. Tysinger retired in 2012 after 25 years as Director of Music and Organist at Highland Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem. Previously he served churches in Michigan where he was president of the Detroit chapter of Choristers Guild. He is currently serving as secretary of the Winston-Salem chapter of the American Guild of Organists and as substitute organist in several local churches. Please silence all electronic devices.

FLOWERS The flowers in the sanctuary are given to the glory of God and in memory of Dr. T. W. Littlejohn II & Dr. T. W. Littlejohn III, by Hazel Littlejohn Willis and family.

ABOUT OUR BANNERS In the Bible and in church tradition, the dove and fire symbolize the Holy Spirit. According to the four Gospels, the Spirit descended on Jesus like a dove at his baptism (Mark 1:10 and parallels). John the Baptist promised the Messiah would baptize with the Holy Spirit “and with fire” (Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16). From Moses’ encounter with God by the burning bush (Exodus 3:1-6) to the tongues of fire at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4), fire is a sign of God’s riveting, transforming presence. The Pentecost banner depicts the fire of God’s challenge and the dove of God’s gentle loving care. The artist who designed and painted the Pentecost banner is our own Bambi Setzer. The season of Pentecost begins with Pentecost Sunday and continues until the first Sunday of Advent.

FOR THE CHILDREN Worship Care is provided for children, infant - kindergarten aged on the first floor of Building B. Children’s Worship resumes this month for 1st through 3rd graders. It meets on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month. During the Hymn of Devotion, children meet their leaders in the narthex to walk together to Children’s Worship (B244). After worship, parents pick up their children from B244. Volunteers are needed to help chaperone the children during that time. If you are interested in volunteering one Sunday, please contact Amine Seifert, [email protected] For the 2nd and 4th Sundays children are invited to enjoy the worship service with their families. Children’s activity bulletins and crayons are available in the narthex.

Each week the program provides a box of produce grown at Harmony Ridge Farm to the participants for a nominal fee per family. Our Knollwood missions budget supplements the cost of the produce to these families. At times there will be fresh eggs in the boxes and egg cartons are needed to transport the eggs. Please help by saving your empty egg cartons to donate to the farm. Place them in plastic collection bin in the narthex. 6
