1 God Is So God Hymnal # 658 (vs. 3-4) *PRAYER OF DEDICATION (unison) Thank you, God, for the wealth you have entrusted to us. As we share a portion of our wealth, we pray that it may never become the object of our affection. Keep our focus on people, on children, on relationships and lasting values, rather than on any possessions we can accumulate. We dedicate our time, our treasure, and ourselves to the reign of God among us, praying that our gifts may reach the lost, the hurting, and those who are in need. We ask it in Jesus name. Amen. (vs. 1-3) *CHARGE AND BENEDICTION (v. 4) *POSTLUDE Cornet Recessional Dahl SERVING US TODAY Greeters: Teddy Rossow, Wayne Otto Music Director: Linda Kachelmeier Ushers: Randy Bourgoin, Dave & MaryAnn Cheyne, Becky Finkle Organist: Jen Bierlein Acolyte: Timmy Eiden Youth Coordinator: Ruth Buller Lector: James Eiden Church Administrator: Eleta Pierce Coffee Servers: Pam & Jim Vasseur Prayer Chain Contact: Church Office (651) The flowers on the chancel this morning are provided by Karen Bergstrom Cover art: from the children at FPC-SSP, artists names are listed on each cover Pastors: Katie Estes, Tom Watson Christian Brosi Jesus Loves the Little Children

2 First Presbyterian Church of South St. Paul CHILDREN HILDREN S SABBATH ABBATH/B /BAPTISM October 11, :00 a.m. /B *please stand in body or in spirit GATHERING MUSIC He Leadeth Me and Jesus Loves Me arr. Line WELCOME & ANNOUNCEMENTS Katie Estes CENTERING SILENCE INTROIT Dona Nobis Pacem Anonymous Sunday School Children and Youth Grant Us Peace CALL TO WORSHIP (responsive) Jesus said, Let the little children come to me! We come, each of us a child of God. Jesus said, Do not stop them. We come to remove obstacles before children. Jesus said, It is to such as these that the reign of God belongs. We come to recognize that each child is already part of God s realm. Jesus said, Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the reign of God as a little child will never enter it. We come to worship with the trust, vulnerability and dependence of a child. Come, let us worship God together! I Was There To Hear Your Borning Cry Hymnal # 488 *PRAYER OF CONFESSION (unison) Tom Watson Creator God, you have made each of us in your image, and yet we fail to reflect your love and justice. You have created every child in your image, and yet we don t treat every child as a precious reflection of you. We see some children as valued treasures, and others as lost causes. We invest our time, money, and hopes in some children, while we squander the great potential of others. Open our eyes, we pray, to see that every child is made in your image and belongs to you. Help us to love, protect, and nurture all children. We pray these things in the name of the One who came to us as a child. Amen. *ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS (responsive) Beloved, we are God s children now. Hear and believe the good news: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Amen.

Wash, O God, Your Sons and Daughters Hymnal # 490 PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION (unison) (v. 1) As we hear your Word read, O God, by your Spirit tug on our hearts, like a child tugging a parent s sleeve, whisper in our ear, like a child sharing an important secret, clamor for our attention, like a young one who can t wait any longer, redirect our sights, like a child pointing out a wonder we almost missed. Don t let us miss your Word to us this day, we pray in Jesus name. Amen. OLD TESTAMENT Jeremiah 1: 4-10 James Eiden O.T. p. 698 ANTHEM Peace arr.
