Prayer of Confession Liturgist
Liturgist: Lord, you call us to draw near, yet we fail to hear your voice. We sleepwalk through life, ignoring the needs of people all around us and worrying about our own desires. Forgive us: when we shut out the call to climb into your presence; when we make excuses to put off that journey. Have mercy on us, O Lord, as we silently open our hearts and confess our sins:
(Time of silence)
Hear our pleas, O God,and lift us to newness of life. Amen.
Words of Assurance All
All: We worship a forgiving God, whose mercy is never ending, whose heart abounds in steadfast love. Because of the love of Jesus Christ, nothing can separate us from the love of God.
The Reading of the Psalm Psalm 99

New Study Starting 2/28/22 24 Hours That Changed The World by Adam Hamilton.
About the Book: No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion
of Jesus of Nazareth. In this book. Adam Hamilton guides us through the last twenty-four hours of Jesus' life. Each chapter is designed to help the reader experience and understand the significance of Jesus' suffering and death in a way you have never done before. Whether readers are long-time Christians or simply curious about the story of Christ's crucifixion, they are invited to join the author in retracing the last 24 hours of Jesus' life.
Pastor Shana’s Lenten Study Info

Sign-up sheets are in the Narthex.
Zoom Option Sign Ups at https://www.tahlequahumc.org/onlinegroups
About the Study: The story of Jesus’s death is not something we just read: we think about it, and we experience it; we hear the taunts of the soldiers, the priests, and the passersby even as we hear the famous “seven last words” from the cross.
Beyond The Broken Heart
This class is good for anyone who has experienced loss or is grieving. Pastor Shana will be leading an eight-week support and grief ministry program, readers will find comfort and both spiritual and practical guidance during their grief journey. The Grief class will begin on March 8th.
We will offer 2 classes every Tuesday. One at 10am and one at 6pm.
This class will go for 6 weeks.
Grief is not a crisis of faith;
it is a crisis of the heart.
