Gracious God, your way is love and yet we do not love you or each other
as we should. Your way is forgiveness and yet we do not forgive others

others as we could. Forgive us, Lord, and by your Spirit, turn our lives to
follow where you lead, all for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ.

*THE APOSTLES’ CREED (Unison)
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by
the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius
Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried. He descended into hell. The
third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and
sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He
shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion
of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the
life everlasting. Amen.

1 Timothy
Deteriorating values. Competing religions. Weakening morality. Do you feel sometimes that
the world presents you with more problems than you can handle? Timothy faced all of these
tough issues as a young church leader. But Paul encouraged him to put aside timidity and
insecurity, and to find strength in Christ. As Gus Miller guides you into study of this letter,
you'll also find the support you need to follow through in obedience to God's Word. The Apostle Paul's first
letter to Timothy, a six-week study Wednesday evenings through February 11, 6:00—7:00 pm.
Make checks to Carol Placzek, 5754 N. Scottsdale Rd., Paradise Valley, AZ 85253

View Presbyterian Church, under the direction of Kay Randolph and Peter
Flynn, will be sharing the Gospel of Luke. The ministry narrative in Luke’s
Gospel, chapters 3 through 19, will be presented in dramatic form with just
