Homecoming Service at Scottsburg UMC opened with the prelude “Praise Him, Praise Him” played by Lee Snead. The call to worship was “Surely The Presence ofThe Lord” by the choir. Rev. Kerry Halbert had welcome remarks and announcements. The hymn of praise was “He Touched Me.” The offertory hymn was “Jesus Paid It All.” Ushers were Tim and Eric Snead. Special music was a solo “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You” by Lee and he read Revelations 21:4. Cathy Halbert told the youth story on “Zacchaeus Up The Sycamore Tree.”

The choir anthem was “I’ll Be Somewhere Listening.” The hymn of dedication was Victory In Jesus.” Rev. Halbert had joys and concerns, prayer and led the Lord’s Prayer. The closing hymn was “Because He Lives.”

Rev. Halbert had dismissal blessing and the benediction was “Bond of Love.”

The beautiful altar flowers were given in memory of Jeanette Ligon by Alfred and family and in memory of Marvin and Maurine Ligon by Marvin, Phyllis and family and Mason and Mary Thomas Ligon. Tim Snead was the acolyte.
