God of Justice

God of justice, Savior to all

Came to rescue the weak and the poor

Chose to serve and not be served

Jesus You have called us

Freely we’ve received

Now freely we will give

Chorus:

We must go live to feed the hungry

Stand beside the broken

We must go

Stepping forward keep us from just singing

Move us into action

We must go


To act justly every day

Loving mercy in every way

Walking humbly before You God

You have shown us what You require

Freely we’ve received

Now freely we will give

Chorus

Fill us up and send us out

Fill us up and send us out

Fill us up and send us out Lord

Chorus


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.


The Greatest Commandment (The Porter’s Gate)

Love the Lord your God

With all your heart and soul and mind

And love your neighbor as yourself

(x2)


Let us be known

Let us be known

By the way we love

(x2)


Love the Lord your God

With all your heart and soul and mind

And love your neighbor as yourself

(x2)


Children's Bible Story


Lectio Conversation (Matthew 22:15-22)

(Hold onto these questions while we read our scripture.)

What stands out to you about this text? (word/phrase/question/idea)

How have you heard this text interpreted before?

Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?”

But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? Show me the coin used for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and whose title?” They answered, “The emperor’s.”

Then he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.

Homily


10,000 Reasons

Chorus:

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul

Worship God’s holy name

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship God’s holy name

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning

It’s time to sing Your song again

Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes

Chorus

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger

Your name is great and Your heart is kind

For all Your goodness I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

Chorus

And on that day when my strength is failing

The end draws near and my time has come

Still my soul will sing Your praise unending

Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Chorus

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.

We Believe In The Name

(Music & Lyrics by The Porter’s Gate)


We believe in the saving power,

in the saving power of the Name

(x4)


His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name


We believe in the name (x4)


We believe in the healing power,

in the healing power of the Name

(x4)


His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name

(x2)


We believe in the name (x4)


What’s his name? Jesus! (x4)

Say his name. Jesus! (x3)

What’s his name? Jesus!


His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name


We believe in the name (x3)

Sending/Blessing (from Philippians 4)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from the Paul to the Philippians:

All: Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

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.
