Passing the Mantle

            Dear Friends, today we recognize the value of Shelly Thompson’s ministry with our Youth over the last six years.  She has led our teens with confidence, a deep faith, an unconditional love, and an eagerness to include them in the Church of Jesus Christ.  She has led them through mission trips, district and conference camping, and trips to Montana.  She has provided them with quality Bible Studies, teaching them how to read scripture, interpret it, and apply it to their lives.  Shelly has trained other young adults in how to work with teens, and provided assistance in our Confirmation Classes.  Shelly has been so valuable to us and to God.

            We give thanks to God for Shelly, for her witness, and for her faithfulness!

            Today, Shelly passes the mantle of Youth Ministry to Jentry Hamilton.

Church, as a people committed to this ministry through your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness, will you support Jentry in this new beginning of her ministry with Youth?

            Jentry, we are committed to support you in this ministry.  Test us in this, ask and we will respond and help make our teens our priority.

Prelude

The Light of Christ Enters

*Introit

*God Calls Us to Worship

            One:  And God knelt down in the dust and formed us with his own hands. 

            ALL:  We are the work of his hands, made in the image of God,

            One:  Yet we are also cracked, clay jars, weakened by poor decisions, broken by abuse and disappointment.

            ALL:  Still, we are children of God, redeemed by His sacrifice on the cross, filled with His Holy Spirit.  How great is our God!!

*Hymn                                                How Great Thou Art                                                    77

*Sung Response

Without seeing you…

Scripture Reading                              2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18

Prayer of Confession

            God of love and God of power, if we are made in your image, why do we find it so difficult to hold love and power in our hands?  We use power to gain control over those around us, withholding love to gain the upper hand.  We are so insecure that we feel we must have power rather than being vulnerable enough to love unconditionally.  We have failed to open ourselves to the power of your love that has the ability to lift us all up to a higher level.  You have called us to live in righteousness with you, no longer treating people as objects to be used for our own benefit; you want us to treat each person as a precious child of God.  Lord, forgive us again, and transform us by your grace. . .
