Acteens had a busy Wednesday night. They filled 24 hygiene kits to be delivered to Harbor House women's shelter. They also made 30 Easter goodie bags for the children at the Kennedy Baptist Children's Home in Kinston. Thank you for all the donations to fill these bags!

Lord, we confess that we have not tended to the care of our souls. We have been too busy to pray. We have been too quick to speak and too slow to listen for you. We have filled our lives with all kinds of noise instead of patiently waiting like sheep for our shepherd's voice.
Lord we confess our need of you. We need your grace. We need you patience. We need your guidance. We cannot see beyond the moment. We cannot worship you as we ought. As we begin this solemn journey toward the cross, we call upon your mercy and your love for our salvation. (The Prayers of Confession)
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Psalm 51:10-12
Have Your own way, Lord; have Your own way. Hold over me absolute sway. Fill me with Your Spirit, until all see Christ only, always, living in me. (Have Thine Own Way, Lord. Adelaide Pollard).
