Leader: We owe much to many—to home, school, community, nation, and to God.
Scouts: A scout is loyal.
Leader: The good Samaritan showed the spirit of doing a Good Turn.
Scouts: A scout is helpful.
Leader: Jesus shows us how to be a friend. Being a friend to others and to animals is the mark of a good person.

Leader: Courtesy is the mark of all faiths. It is shown in thoughtful acts and kindly respect for everyone.
Scouts: A scout is courteous.
Leader: Kindliness is the way people show respect for others.
Scouts: A scout is kind.
Leader: Life is filled with things that we must do whether we like them or not. One of the marks of growing up is our readiness to accept
responsibilities willingly.
Scouts: A scout is obedient.
Leader: Our moods make our days. If we are grouchy, our day is gloomy. If we are happy, our day is always happier.
Scouts: A scout is cheerful.
Leader: The world offers many gifts. A wise person uses them with care.
Scouts: A scout is thrifty.
Leader: To each of us comes danger, difficult tasks, and temptations. In choice of courage or cowardice, may we be brave.

Leader: Cleanliness is next to Godliness. To have a clean body, a clean mind, and a clean record is a rewarding achievement.
Scouts: A scout is clean.
Leader: Character is determined by the things we worship. If we respect ourselves and our brothers and sisters, and see them as gifts of
the goodness of God, we live on a high plane.
Scouts: A Scout is reverent.
Scout Philip Dusek
All: God, my Father, thank You for bringing us to the beginning of a new day; thank You for the peace and rest of
the night that is past. Each day gives us many opportunities of expressing our love for You; all my senses, all
my talents come from You; by Your power and presence help us to use them well today, doing everything for
Your honor. Forgive us for times in the past when we have disappointed You and have sinned against You and
others. Preserve us from all that is evil, so that all we think and do and say may be pleasing to You. Hear our
prayers as we now pray silently, confessing our sin and seeking your will for our lives. Amen.
(A moment for silent, individual confession and repentance)

Austin Eskew
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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Apostles Creed
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 Ghost, 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 Ghost, the holy catholic church, the
communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Sunday Flower Arrangement donations.
The new flower card signups for 2015 are now on the
board in Liston Hall. Please pick your date to help
glorify God with flowers in the Sunday service of your
choice to celebrate an occasion, honor the memory of
loved ones, or honor a special person. The flower
arrangement donation is $65.00 and should be paid to
“Skidaway Island Presbyterian Church” with a notation
on the memo line of your check to “Flowers and the
date of your Sunday.” The Flower Guild thanks you.
We are trying something new. Instead of having the pew pads to pass and sign, we are asking everyone to fill out a
card and to place it in the offering plate. On this card, you can update your contact information if it has changed (just
check the box), inform the church of prayer concerns and indicate a willingness to take a new step on the road of
discipleship by signing up for an event here at the church. We hope these new cards will be able to increase
communication for everyone. Thanks for giving this a try!

John Calvin: His Life and Legacy
Our denomination’s roots are in the Swiss Reformation. Although he did not reform the church in Geneva and wasn’t
even Swiss, but French, John Calvin quickly became the leader of the movement and his influence is still felt in
Presbyterian and Reformed Churches around the globe as well as in secular areas such as education and social
concerns. Calvin’s view of God’s sovereignty, the role of sin in human life, and the purpose of those called by the
Almighty to serve for the glory of God are still major thoughts within our theology today.
On Wednesday, January 7, our pastor started a five week study on Calvin’s legacy. Won’t you join us as we look at this
influential theologian and how his influence is still being felt in our world?
The mission donation for this Sunday is a departure from the norm. We ask that you support Faith In Practice as they
