CALL TO CONFESSION
      Jesus gave sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf.
             But too often we choose neither to see nor hear God’s word.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
            Loving God, we confess that our faith is often small
            and we fail to trust your promise to be our strength and deliverer.
            We have doubted your assurance that you never leave or forsake us,
            and we have been anxious and despairing when life becomes difficult.
            Whenever darkness envelops our lives,
            grant us the awareness of your loving presence.
            Heal us and make us whole
            in order that we may once again enjoy the blessings of life
            and gratefully acknowledge your steadfast love.

SILENT PRAYER

ASSURANCE OF GOD’S FORGIVENESS
      God liberates those who turn to the way of Christ.
             We are set free to walk the path that leads to abundant life.

                                          ANNOUNCEMENTS

 WORSHIP NOTES
The Chancel flowers today are given to the glory of God in loving memory of Wilma Tull in honor of her
birthday from Peter Rittenhouse and Bob and Sue Schofield.

The rosebud at the side of the pulpit this morning is in celebration of the birth of Barrett Windsor McCabe,
born October 15, daughter of Abbey and Casey McCabe and sister to Hudson. She is the granddaughter of Clark
and Donna Collins and great granddaughter of Phil Collins and Don and Dolly Windsor. We welcome this child
into the Westminster family.

Sanctuary Flowers - Consider giving the sanctuary flowers for Sunday worship. Your gift of God’s natural
beauty to remember or honor loved ones, or to celebrate an event, expresses praise and thanksgiving to God.
Please contact Linda Watson during business hours at 302-571-6719 or lwatson@ycst.com. Available dates for
flowers are November 1, 8, and 29 and December 6, 20, and 27.

Are you wearing a nametag? Whether you are a longtime member or new to the church, wearing a nametag
provides others the opportunity to meet you, greet you by name, and for you to become more familiar with others
at church. Nametags and markers are in baskets at all major entrances. Extend hospitality, kindness and
friendship by wearing a nametag every Sunday.

“Westminster to Go” Audio tapes and DVD’s of recent Westminster worship services are available. Please use
the sign-out sheet when you borrow them from the front desk. Printed sermons are available on the literature
tables the following week and on our website at www.wpc.org.

 CONGREGATIONAL CARE AND PRAYER
Please remember in your prayers:
     Westminster’s homebound family who can no longer attend worship with us. Send a card, say a prayer,
      visit! This week we ask you to remember Inez Cobb, HC, Cokesbury Village 726 Loveville Road,
      Hockessin, DE 19707 and Bob Tiews, Stonegates, Apt. 171, 4031 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, DE 19807.

     Our brothers and sisters in worldwide ministry (see back page.)

Westminster’s Covenant Prayer Group is committed to praying weekly for specific needs of the faith
community. Anyone with prayer requests may leave a confidential message on 302-654-5848, ext. 335, or fill
out a prayer request card (in the pew pocket) and place it in the offering plate.

A Centering Prayer time occurs every Thursday at noon in the Ruth Christie Room. Anyone is welcome to
participate. Basically, those who come spend thirty minutes in silence. Silence allows us time and space to empty
our minds, quiet our brains’ chatter, and be still and attentive to God.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan often seem far away, and we may neglect to realize that Americans, as well
as Iraqis, Afghans, and members of coalition forces, continue to die each day. As Christians, we are called to
pray for the spreading of peace and justice and an end to violence. If someone in your family is serving in these
wars, we ask that you let us know, so that we may include that person on our prayer list. (Contact Colleen
Falasco: 302-654-5214 ext. 131, or cfalasco@wpc.org.)

This week we pray for
    Those known to the WPC Community presently serving in the Middle East:
              Afghanistan: Neal Moody and Daniel Reinsenberger
              Iraq: Ken Bachman

                                                       12

        Sergeant Michael Scusa, age 22, of Villas, New Jersey, October 3

        Private 1st Class Daniel Rivera, age 22, of Rochester, New York, October 18

       Those who have returned from service, possibly suffering from wounds or Post-Traumatic Stress
        Disorder, whose scars may by deep and long-lasting.

ONE SHOT SERVICE SUNDAY

Today is the second annual One Shot Service Sunday (OSSS) for 10 participating congregations in New Castle
Presbytery. Eleven WPC youth and two adults will join teens from nine other churches to participate in an
afternoon service blitz at ministry places such as Urban Promise, Habitat for Humanity, men's and women's
shelters, Delaware Clothing Bank and others. After working hard for three hours, the teams will return to
Westminster's Community Hall for pizza and closing worship.

HALLOWEEN FUN

                                      one of the most classic horror films of all time: the original 1925 silent
                                      movie, Phantom of the Opera. Starring Lon Chaney and featuring live
                                      organ accompaniment by Paul Fleckenstein, this 80-minute tour-de-force
                                      provides chills, thrills, and laughs. Got a Halloween costume? Let’s see it
                                      Friday night! Don’t have one? Come and enjoy the show anyway. See
                                      flyer on page 11. (Your $10 donation helps send your Westminster Choir
                                      on tour to Germany in May.)
