Theme Song for May: "You Who Give Us Life"

Call to Worship (adapted from Psalm 16): 
L: Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
P: You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.
L: The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup.
P: You hold my lot.
L: I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; 
P: In the night also my heart instructs me.
L: You show me the path of life. 
ALL: In your presence there is fullness of joy.

Children's Sermon: "Do You Trust Me?"

Stewardship Meditation: This Sunday after Easter, we might find ourselves in the same position as Thomas.  Lent is over, Easter has passed.  Did it really happen?  Where is the transformation of our hearts and minds?  Do we merely return to our old life now?  And yet we hear Thomas' request, his desire to be convinced, to have his faith grown.  And we make the same request.  Lead us, O God, into a deeper, more profound faith.  A faith that touches your wounds, and knows your healing.  A faith that is generous and loving to the world around us.  Be in our living and in our giving, as we approach the table today.
