Welcome Visitors Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church of Prairie Hill. We are a loving and

welcoming family of faith, excited about what God has done and continues to do for us. We rejoice that you have chosen to worship with us. This bulle-

tin along with the screen in the front of the sanctuary will guide worship. The page numbers for the service refer to the front of the red hymnals in

the pew. You will find hymns in the back of the same hymnal. The * indicates where you are invited to stand. We desire and encourage children to partici-pate in our worship, but just in case, a cry room and a bathroom are located near the church entrance. If you have any questions about our church fam-

ily, membership, or interested in conversation with Pastor Kyle, call the church office at 979-836-8666.

Lutheran flavor of Christianity, with a strong emphasis on the power of Gods grace.

Season of the Church Year: Time After Pentecost + Liturgical Color: Green The Sanctuary colors serve to adorn the worship space, and to call attention to the nature of the season or festival being celebrated. Green is used, to in-dicate our growth in faith as we follow the teachings and ministry of Christ.

A Place to Call Home

1I love the LORD, who has heard my voice,

and listened to my supplication, 2for the LORD has given ear to me

whenever I called. 3The cords of death entangled me;

the anguish of the grave came upon me;

I came to grief and sorrow. 4Then I called upon the name of the LORD:

"O LORD, I pray you, save my life." 5Gracious is the LORD and righteous;

our God is full of compassion. 6The LORD watches over the innocent;

I was brought low, and God saved me. 7Turn again to your rest, O my soul.

for the LORD has dealt well with you.
