Facing God (from Psalm 13)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


Leader: How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?

All: How long must I bear pain in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all day long?

Leader: Consider me and answer me, O Lord my God! Give light to my eyes.

All: I trust in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

Leader: I will sing to the Lord, because God has dealt bountifully with me. Let us worship God.


What Joy

You made the heavens and the earth

The sea and all that is in them

Your promises remain

You give justice to the weak

You care for the widow and orphan

Forever Lord You reign

Chorus (2x):

What joy, what joy

For those whose hope is in

The name of the Lord

What peace, what peace

For those whose confidence

Is God alone


You make the blinded eye to see

And cherish those who seek Your face

Your faithful love endures

You came to let the slave go free

You cause the sinner to sing praise

In You we are secure

Chorus 2x


Hallelujah (x4)

Hallelujah forever we will sing

Hallelujah praises to the King

Hallelujah forever we will sing

Hallelujah praises to the King

Chorus 2x


Prayer of Confession & 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 Lord Thy God in the Midst of Thee

Refrain based on Zephaniah 3:17


The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, is mighty

God will sing and rejoice over thee with joy, with joy

God will rest in his love,

God will joy over thee with singing, 

The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, mighty, mighty


Children's Bible Story


Lectio Conversation (Matt. 10:40-42)

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

What stands out to you about this text?

How have you experienced “welcome” or hospitality from others?

“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.”

Homily


Praise to the Lord

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Praise to the Lord

The Almighty, the King of Creation

O my soul praise you

For thou art my health and salvation

All you who hear

Now to thy temple draw near

Joining in glad adoration


Praise to the Lord

Who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth

Shelters you under spread wing

And so gently sustaineth

Have you not seen

How your desires e’er have been

Granted in what God ordaineth


Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Praise to the Lord

Oh let all that is in me adore thee

All that has life and breath

Come now with praises before thee

Let the amen

Sound from God’s people again

Gladly forever adore thee


Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


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.

Standing on the Promises

Standing on the promises of Christ my king

Through eternal ages let his praises ring

Glory in the highest I will shout and sing

Standing on the promises of God


Chorus:

Standing, standing

Standing on the promises of God my Savior

Standing, standing

I’m standing on the promises of God


Standing on the promises that cannot fail

When the howling storms of doubt and fears assail

By the living Word of God I shall prevail

Standing on the promises of God


Chorus


Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord

Bound to him eternally by love’s strong cord

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword

Standing on the promises of God


Chorus


Standing on the promises I cannot fall

Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call

Resting in my savior as my all in all

Standing on the promises of God


Chorus

Sending/Blessing (from Psalm 139:13-15)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from the psalmist:

All: It was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

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.
