Facing God (from Psalm 111)

Leader: Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,

in the company of the upright.

All: Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.

Leader: Full of honor and majesty is God’s work,

and God’s righteousness endures forever.

All: God has gained renown through wonderful deeds;

the Lord is gracious and merciful.

Leader: Let us worship God.



Oh How I Need You

Lord I find You in the seeking

Lord I find You in the doubt

And to know You is to love you

And to know so little else

I need You

Oh how I need You (x3)

Lord I find You in the morning

Lord I seek You everyday

Let my life be for Your glory

Woven in Your threads of grace

I need You

Oh how I need You (x3)


Light, glorious light

I will go where You shine

Break the dawn, crack the skies

Make the way bright before me

In Your light I will find

All I need, all I need is You

Oh how I need You (x3)



Laying Down Our Burdens & Assurance

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

All: Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you by what we have done and what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart, mind, and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. Forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.

Leader: The Good News is that Christ has come and Christ will come again.

All: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God.

Children's Bible Story

Baptism

Do you, as members of the church of Jesus Christ, promise to guide and nurture Logan, by word and deed, with love and prayer, encouraging him to know and follow Christ and to be a faithful member of his church?

The people respond:

We do.


Lectio Conversation (Jeremiah 29:4-7)

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

Homily

Prayers of the People

Now is the time when we share the prayers on our hearts and minds. If you have a private prayer, you can email them to us throughout the week and the pastoral team will pray over them.

If you have a prayer, please unmute your mic to share.

After each prayer, I will lead our response on mute:

Lord in your mercy // hear our prayers

***

Now I will offer a prayer for the greater community and world. We will end by saying the Lord’s Prayer together in whatever language you prefer. Let us pray.

(muted)

Leader: Just as God/Christ taught us to pray...

All: 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. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

Communion

Invitation:

Amidst great uncertainty and fear, Jesus gathered his friends together for a meal that would become for countless saints of the faith a way to experience and remember his eternal grace and love.

Jesus said, come to me, all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

[You are invited to use whatever elements you have on hand – any beverage, any food]

Leader: The Lord be with you.

All: And also with you.

Leader: Lift up your hearts.

All: We lift them up to the Lord.

Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All: It is right to give God thanks and praise.

Prayer

Institution

[The bread of life, the cup of salvation.]

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free

Rolling as a mighty ocean

In its fullness over me

Underneath me, all around me

Is the current of your love

Leading onward, leading homeward

To your glorious rest above

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus

Spread his praise from shore to shore

How he loveth, ever loveth

Changeth never, nevermore.

How he watches o’er his loved ones

Died to call them all his own

How for them he intercedes

Watcheth o’er them from the throne

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Love of every love the best:

‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing

‘Tis a haven sweet of rest

O the deep deep love of Jesus

Tis a heaven of heavens to me

And it lifts me up to glory

For it lifts me up to thee

Liturgy of Farewell

Sending/Blessing (from Ephesians 1)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from the letter to the Ephesians:

All: God destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us.

Leader: The steadfast love of God goes with you, the deep and abiding peace of Christ goes with you, and the comfort and guidance of the Holy Spirit goes with you, now and always. Amen.
