“Not in the Manual,” Rev. Gary Heaton’s message at 9 and 11 this Sunday, May 7. Scripture text is John 10:1-10.

The Worship Ensemble plays at the 9:00 service and at 11 the Chancel Choir will sing Mack Wilberg’s “The King of love my shepherd is.” The 11:00 prelude is “My Shepherd Will Supply My Need” arranged by Wilberg with Leslie Rueff, soprano, Rachel Milan, flute, Brandon Mock, saxophone; and Kim Mucha, piano.

Mollie Snedegar and Mary Elizabeth Morris will read scripture and Gary Morris leads the Psalter at the second service.

“Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. They will not follow a stranger, but they will run from him because they do not know the voice of strangers.” Jesus used this figure of speech with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.

So again Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.   John 10:1-10
