Worship Notes ACTS of Prayer Prayer takes many forms. In keeping with the Prayer Conference, our worship experience today will include the ACTS model of prayer: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication. Our prayer is that your prayer life will be enriched by your participation in all the elements of our service today. Participants: Steven Mosley is our guest speaker today, leading our Prayer Conference. Dr. Karl Haffner, senior pastor, hosts today’s service. Bob Peach, elder and director of Kettering Counseling Care Center at Kettering Health Network, presents the Prayers of the People. Lindsey Conkle, a seventh grade student at Spring Valley, reads our Call to Prayer. Hazel Burns, retired pastor for women’s ministry and outreach, presents the second Prayers of the People. Desi Harning, pastoral intern, planned today’s services. Drama: Where’s the Plan? In this presentation Steven takes a trip through the Bible that illuminates his own journey from the anger and confusion and rebellion of the post-divorce world to a redemptive discovery that God does indeed have a plan for our lives. It’s a search for home again, a way back to Eden. Israel falling for idols proves an uncomfortable description of his own way of acting out in the compulsive dating scene. He finds himself running away from the “big stick” of God’s law, from the throne of God’s sovereignty and from the fire of the prophets. But a moment-of-truth encounter with the One who loved unconditionally opens up the epistles in a new way. Music: The Praise Team this morning includes: Dale Creech, a member of our finance committee and a Dayton attorney; Debbie Daniel, an occupational health nurse for Dell Computers; Nancy Donnelly-Ivy, deputy director of the International Support Squadron at Wright Patterson Air Force Base; Greta Shull, a physical therapist at Kettering Health Network; and Elliot Smith, chaplain and Bible teacher at Spring Valley Academy.
