Zoom/Announcements






Facing God (from Psalm 8)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


Leader: O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 

All: Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.

Leader: What are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?

All: You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet.

Leader: Let us worship God.


How Can I Keep From Singing

(Sing along with Abi muted)


My life goes on in endless song

Above Earth's lamentations

I hear the real, though far-off hymn

That hails a new creation

Through all the tumult and the strife

I hear its music ringing

It sounds an echo in my soul

How can I keep from singing?


While through the tempest loudly roars

I hear the truth, it liveth

And though the darkness round me close

Songs in the night he giveth

No storm can shake my inmost calm

While to that rock I cling

Since love is lord of heaven and earth

How can I keep from singing?


When tyrants tremble in their fear

And hear their death knell ringing

When friends rejoice both far and near

How can I keep from singing?

In prison cell and dungeon vile

Our thoughts to them are winging 

When friends by shame are undefiled

How can I keep from singing?


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

(Listen along to this new refrain as Abi leads us!)


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

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

Thou will rest in God’s 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 (Matthew 28:16-20)

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

What stands out to you about this text?

Who do you identify with the most in this story?

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Homily


My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

(Sing along with Abi muted until final chorus, then unmute!)


My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly lean on Jesus' name.


Chorus:

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils his lovely face,

I rest on his unchanging grace;

In every high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the vale.

Chorus

His oath, his covenant, his blood

Support me in the whelming flood;

When all around my soul gives way,

He then is all my Hope and Stay.


Chorus


When he shall come with trumpet sound,

Oh, may I then in him be found,

Clothed in his righteousness alone,

Faultless to stand before the throne!


Final Chorus (Everyone, unmuted!):

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand


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.

...ending in the Lord's Prayer (everyone on mute)

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.

Guide My Feet

(Sing along with Abi muted until verse 4, then unmute!)


Verse 1:

Guide my feet while I run this race. 

Guide my feet while I run this race. 

Guide my feet while I run this race, 

for I don't want to run this race in vain! 


Verse 2:

Hold my hand while I run this race. 

Hold my hand while I run this race. 

Hold my hand while I run this race, 

for I don't want to run this race in vain! 


Verse 3:

Stand by me while I run this race. 

Stand by me while I run this race. 

Stand by me while I run this race, 

for I don't want to run this race in vain! 


Verse 4 (Everyone, unmuted!):

I'm your child while I run this race. 

I'm your child while I run this race. 

I'm your child while I run this race, 

for I don't want to run this race in vain! 

Sending/Blessing (from Romans 5:1-5)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

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

All: Since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand. But we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance... and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.

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.
