First Reading
1 Peter 5:6-11
6  Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8  Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 
9  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10  And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
11  To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Acts 20:17-27
17  From Miletus, Paul sent to Ephesus for the elders of the church.
18  When they arrived, he said to them: "You know how I lived the whole time I was with you, from the first day I came into the province of Asia.
19  I served the Lord with great humility and with tears, although I was severely tested by the plots of the Jews.
20  You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.
21  I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.
22  And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.
23  I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.
24  However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.
25  Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again.
26  Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men.
27  For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.

Sermon

Offering
"Harmony Of The Angels"

In Whom Do We Believe? 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, died and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.  From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lord's Prayer
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 and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
