* Please, stand up, as you are comfortable.  



Welcome to this holy space where God’s Spirit dwells among us! 
We come longing to feel the presence of God. 
Open your hearts, for this is a place of prayer and healing. 
This is a place of joy and faith. 
This is the place for you. 
Thanks be to God! 

* HYMN: O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright #679

Gracious God, we often forget that you dwell in our hearts. We fail to notice that your Holy Spirit is present in our lives at all times. In our forgetfulness, we stumble and fall, we turn away from you. Forgive us and help us turn toward your love, your healing, and your truth. In the name of the one who brings life, we pray. Amen.

SCRIPTURE: 1 Thess. 5:16-18 Liturgist

The Shared Ministry of Eastman Salem and PdC United Methodist Church invites all children who are between the ages of 3 yrs and 10 yrs old (completed 3K through fourth grade) to join us for Vacation Bible School. Monday, August 9, 2021 to Friday, August 13, 2021, from 5:30 pm until 8:15 pm. The evening will provide youth with a light meal, story time, music, craft and science activities that all focus around a fun message of God as we become Knights of North Castle.  

Knights throughout history were strong and courageous and were warriors for the kings they served. With each daily lesson the youth dive into the story of these brave individuals who protected the weak and never backed down from doing what they were called to do.  

Registration is open until July 15, 2021. Register at Any questions contact Cindy Payne by calling 608-734-9443.  



Lord of life and love, we offer these gifts to you. Bless them and use them, that others might be encouraged in the faith. Gracious God, use our lives as well. Help us share your story and pour out your love on everyone we meet. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.

* HYMN:           Lead On, O Cloud of Presence            #2234
