"The Clarion Call"
Darlene Skinner

Set a timer for 5 minutes and use a breath prayer.
On the inhale, pray, "The floods roar..."
On the exhale, pray, "...You are stronger."

Our Heavenly Father,
  we your humble children invoke your blessing on us.
We adore you, whose name is love,
  whose nature is compassion, whose presence is joy,
  whose Word is truth, whose Spirit is goodness,
  whose holiness is beauty, whose will is peace,
    whose service is perfect freedom,
  and in knowledge of whom stands our eternal life.
Unto you be all honor and glory;
  through Jesus Christ our Lord.

"Our Church"
The Connections Praise Band


Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Deuteronomy 34:1-12

Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho, and the Lord showed him the whole land: Gilead as far as Dan, 2 all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, 3 the Negeb, and the Plain—that is, the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees—as far as Zoar. 4 The Lord said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants’; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.” 5 Then Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in the land of Moab, at the Lord’s command. 6 He was buried in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, but no one knows his burial place to this day. 7 Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died; his sight was unimpaired and his vigor had not abated. 8 The Israelites wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days; then the period of mourning for Moses was ended.9 Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands on him; and the Israelites obeyed him, doing as the Lord had commanded Moses. 10 Never since has there arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face. 11 He was unequaled for all the signs and wonders that the Lord sent him to perform in the land of Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants and his entire land, 12 and for all the mighty deeds and all the terrifying displays of power that Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.


"Ending Well: A Legacy of Hope"
by Pastor David

A legacy is something that is going to outlive you in order to help and speak life to others after you are gone- planting seeds in a garden you never get to see. What does leaving a legacy of faith, courage, redemption, or forgiveness look like in Scripture? Join PUMC for our Ending Well sermon series to find out!

O God,
You have blessed the ministries carried on by this congregation over the last 25 years. So, now and in the days to come, we pray that you would continue to bless our church. May we, the people of Pinehurst United Methodist Church continue to be instruments of your love and grace for the world.

"Celebrating the Church"
Torin Wright & Darlene Skinner
Almighty God, grant that those who worship you this day may present their bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to you. By the power of your Holy Spirit make us strong to fulfill our calling this day. In Jesus' name. Amen
