OPENING PRAYER & LORD’S PRAYER

OPENING SONG Ye Servants of God” arr. Kimball 
Highland Bell Quartet - Kathy Johnson, Harriet McDonald, Warren Way, Mark Wilson

CALL TO & PRAYER OF CONFESSION 
God, we admit that there are things we sweep under the rug - shame, self-doubt, mental health struggles, and our own insecurities. We know that is not what you want for us, for Jesus loved the healthy and the sick parts of everyone. With Jesus, there was no stigma, fear, or bias. God of creation, help us to love and live in the same way. Forgive us when we hate ourselves or distance ourselves from others, simply for being human. You long for better, and we long for you. Gratefully we pray. Amen.

MESSAGE Unraveled, Week 12: 

“Jesus Heals Legion, a Man Possessed by Demons” Rev. Chip Stapleton

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, dead, and buried; He descended into hell. The third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
