Worship, Conversation & Song

This is a space during our time away from our church building for our church family to engage in worship together.

You are invited to worship here together with your church family. We encourage you to sing along, pray with those around you, open your bibles and read the passages provided, and be present in this time. In this time apart, please go out of your way to phone and connect with others from our church family to show love and support in this tough time.

SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES

October 4, 2020

Watch our service which was livestreamed on Facebook: October 4 Sunday Worship Service


September 27, 2020

This Sunday we held our first indoor in person service since March.

September 20, 2020

Welcome!

Greetings

It has been a busy bustling few weeks in many of our lives. Often times those we love and those we are called to live with and toward get left out as the busy builds… Take a couple minutes to reach out to someone on your mind or heart. Call, text, set up a walk or a coffee. Remember that we live life before God together!

Call to Worship

The final words of the Gospel of Matthew are Jesus’ words to his disciples. They are words that remind us of who God is, who we are, and what we are called to be about as his people:

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”


**If you are meeting with others, read the following responsively as a prayer and call to worship.

We are here to worship you, God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We bring all that we have and all that we are to this moment of worship, acknowledging your love, grace, and mercy to us.

Accept our worship, our praise, our thanksgiving and our adoration.

Free us from the burden of our sin, and from the lure of those distractions which steal our attention away from You.

Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us

So that we may experience anew your call to share with all people the good news of Jesus Christ, the One who came to seek and to save the lost among all people. Amen

Prayer

Where have you seen the beauty of the Lord this summer? Take a minute to give thanks.

Where are you fearful and afraid heading into the fall? Take a minute to bring our anxieties to Jesus, asking for his presence and strength.

God,

This was a strange summer, and yet your goodness was all around us. The heat of the days was a welcome gift after a long winter. The beauty of the trees that line our streets, the flowers and produce in our gardens, remind us of the life you gift.

Thank you for your sustaining generosity towards us even when we grumble. Thank you for your blessing even when we have grown quick to bock at your gifts. Be with us as we head into what is known and unknown this Fall. Teach us to trust your goodness and mercy. On our better days, we know they sustain our life. Thank you! Amen.

Scripture

Jeremiah 17:5-8

Thus says the Lord:

Cursed are those who trust in mere mortals

and make mere flesh their strength,

whose hearts turn away from the Lord.

They shall be like a shrub in the desert,

and shall not see when relief comes.

They shall live in the parched places of the wilderness,

in an uninhabited salt land.

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,

whose trust is the Lord.

They shall be like a tree planted by water,

sending out its roots by the stream.

It shall not fear when heat comes,

and its leaves shall stay green;

in the year of drought it is not anxious,

and it does not cease to bear fruit.

Scripture

2 Peter 3:8-18

8 But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.11 Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.14 Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. 15 And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, 16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

Call to Worship


Praise & Worship

Confession/Assurance

** Take time to pray silently to God, confessing the things that have gotten in the way of following Jesus with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Feel free to use the prayer below to help guide you.

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

May you trust these words from Isaiah 1:18,

“Come now, let us argue it out says the Lord:

though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be like snow;

though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”

Thanksgiving

** Bring any praise items or things that you are thankful for before God. Use the prayer below to help guide you. If you are worshiping with others, have one read the plain print and everyone read the bold print.

Give thanks to the Lord who is good.

God’s love is everlasting.

Come, let us praise God joyfully.

Let us come to God with thanksgiving.

For family, for living together and eating together; for family amusements and family pleasures; we thank you, God.

For your help in times of doubt and sorrow; for healing our diseases; for preserving us in temptation and danger; we thank you, God.

For your Holy Spirit, who guides our steps and brings us gifts of faith and love; who prays in us and prompts our grateful worship; we praise you, God.

Above all, O God, for your Son Jesus Christ, who lived and died and lives again for our salvation; for our hope in him; and for the joy of serving him: we thank you and praise you, eternal God, for your goodness to us. Amen.

A Bible verse, talk & song with Dondina & Kara


Scripture

Proverbs 8:1, 22-36

Galatians 5:16-26

Sermon


Communion

** Read the parts below aloud and share in the Lord’s Supper as you are ready.

Pray: God, your steadfast love has been ours for generations. Through Christ, you brought us out of the abyss of death and into the light of eternal love. With joy and thanksgiving, we proclaim our salvation, remembering Christ’s death and resurrection, until he comes again.

As we break bread and share the cup together, may Christ be present with us and may the Spirit bind us together as Christ’s body in this world. Amen.

Words of Institution: “The apostle Paul tells us that on the night on which Jesus was betrayed, he took bread, and when he had given thanks he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ Paul goes on to tell us that he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ Paul then reminds us that whenever we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim the death of Jesus until he comes again.

Invitation: “Friends, this is food for the journey to which God has called us. Let our lives be nourished by the Lord himself as we celebrate together at this table.”

** Share in the bread and the cup as you are ready.

Pray: We praise you, eternal God, through Christ your Word made flesh, in the holy and life-giving Spirit now and forever. Amen.

Benediction

Our benediction for today comes from Jude 24-25:

" Now to him who is able to keep you from falling, and to make you stand without blemish in the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. "

Call To Worship

(If you are worshiping with a few people in your home (such as your family), have someone read this passage aloud)

Psalm 111

1 Praise the Lord! I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people.

2 How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them.

3 Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails.

4 He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord!

5 He gives food to those who fear him; he always remembers his covenant.

6 He has shown his great power to his people by giving them the lands of other nations.

7 All he does is just and good, and all his commandments are trustworthy.

8 They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.

9 He has paid a full ransom for his people. He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever. What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has!

10 Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom.

Praise him forever!


Worship Through Singing


Confession

Take a moment to look back on this past week and bring to God any distractions or diversions that got in the way of following Jesus.

When ready, pray:

We confess to you, Lord, what we are – we are not the people we like others to think we are; we are afraid to admit even to ourselves what lies in the depths of our souls.

But we do not want to hide our true selves from you. We believe that you know us as we are, and yet you love us. Help us not to shrink from self-knowledge; teach us to respect ourselves for your sake; give us courage to put our trust in your guiding power.

We confess to you, Lord, the unrest of the world, to which we contribute and in which we share.

Forgive us that so many of us are indifferent to the needs of others. Forgive our reliance on weapons of terror, our discrimination against people of different races, and our preoccupation with material standards. And forgive us Christians for being unsure of our good news, and so unready to tell it.

Raise us out of the paralysis of guilt into freedom and energy of forgiven people. And for those who through long habit find forgiveness hard to accept, we ask you to break their bondage and set them free.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

In 1 John 1:9, it says: But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

Know that you are forgiven through the love and grace of Christ!


Thanksgiving

(If you have more than one person in your home, have one person read the non-bold parts and read the bold parts together)

Give thanks to the Lord who is good.

God’s love is everlasting.


Come, let us praise God joyfully.

Let us come to God with thanksgiving.


For the good world; for the things great and small, beautiful and awesome; for seen and unseen splendors;

We thank you God!


For friends; for trust and understanding, for counsel and comfort, enabling both intimacy and solitude;

We thank you God!


For the church into which we have been called; for the good news we receive by Word and Sacrament; and for our life together in the Lord;

We praise you God!


Above all, O God, for your Son Jesus Christ, who lived and died and lives again for our salvation; for our hope in him; and for the joy of serving him:

We thank and praise you, eternal God, for your goodness to us, Amen.


Kid's Time

Talk as a family about the ways Jesus was like you. Then talk about the ways we can be like Jesus. What are things that we can we do here and now that Jesus would do if he were here? Make a plan to do something Jesus would do for someone you know this week! If you are going to back to school soon, talk about ways you can be like Jesus at your school!

Jesus prayed for His disciples. Before He was killed and rose again, He gave a special prayer. That prayer was not just for the people gathered around Him, but for all of us, too, and it is a beautiful reminder of the hope and comfort we have in Jesus.

Scripture: John 17:1-10; 20-26

Discuss: How do you pray? What kinds of things do you say, and when do you pray? Do you like it when other people pray for you? What does it mean that Jesus prays for us?

Invitation

At the heart of worship is the desire to meet God. As we seek God in worship, we recognize that He is here and working in our lives. If you are seeking His presence and power, we invite you to join as we worship together, yet apart. God promises that all who seek Him will find Him.

“‘Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord.” ~ Jeremiah 29:12-14

Kid's Time

Discuss as a family - Who is the vine? Who is the father? What does the gardener do in the story? What happens if the branch is cut away from the tree or the vine?

Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. We need to show good fruit like peace, love, kindness. When we don’t bear any fruit, we get pruned. God reminds us to grow. He nudges us along through our life, encouraging us to produce this fruit. Eventually, branches that don’t produce are clipped away.

We need to be a good vine. We must remain with Jesus and allow him to grow good fruit in us. Love your neighbors. Bring peace wherever you go. Remain in him!

Resource


In preparation for the sermon, please listen and read the following poem below.

Listen Here

I am the Vine - a Sonnet By Malcolm Guite


How might it feel to be part of the vine?Not just to see the vineyard from afarOr even pluck the clusters, press the wine,But to be grafted in, to feel the stirOf inward sap that rises from our root,Himself deep planted in the ground of Love,To feel a leaf unfold a tender shoot,As tendrils curled unfurl, as branches giveA little to the swelling of the grape,In gradual perfection, round and full,To bear within oneself the joy and hopeOf God’s good vintage, till it’s ripe and whole.What might it mean to bide and to abideIn such rich love as makes the poor heart glad?

"Going Fishing" Video Lesson

Discussion Questions:

What does Jesus mean when he says, "You will fish for me?" How could you fish for men in your lives? Why is it important to spread the news of Jesus?

1. Write out the Bible Verse Words on to colorful card stock and cut out the words. 2. Optional Materials: tissue paper squares, glitter, sequins, gems, and confetti and word squares in their water bottles and then place the caps on the bottles, Paper to draw fins. Glue or tape to attach to the fish bottle. Finish with googly eyes or create your own. 3. Play a Bible Verse Review Game: Have your children shake up their bottle fish. On the word go see who can find the words in the Bible verse in order to spell out the verse. The child that finds all the words first wins.

Invitation

Psalm 116: 1-9

1 I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.

2 Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

3 The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me, I was overcome by distress and sorrow.

4 Then I called on the name of the Lord, “Lord, save me!”

5 The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.

6 The Lord protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me.

7 Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.

8 For you, Lord, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,

9 that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

ChorusO victory in JesusMy Savior foreverHe sought me and bought meWith His redeeming bloodHe loved me ere I knew HimAnd all my love is due HimHe plunged me to victoryBeneath the cleansing flood
Verse 1I heard an old old storyHow a Savior came from gloryHow He gave His life on CalvaryTo save a wretch like meI heard about His groaningOf His precious blood's atoningThen I repented of my sinsAnd won the victory
Verse 2I heard about His healingOf His cleansing pow'r revealingHow He made the lame to walk againAnd caused the blind to seeAnd then I cried dear JesusCome and heal my broken spiritAnd somehow Jesus came and broughtTo me the victory
Verse 3I heard about a mansionHe has built for me in gloryAnd I heard about the streets of goldBeyond the crystal seaAbout the angels singingAnd the old redemption storyAnd some sweet day I'll sing up thereThe song of victory

Verse 1

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross

The emblem of suff'ring and shame

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

For a world of lost sinners was slain

Chorus

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross

Till my trophies at last I lay down

I will cling to the old rugged cross

And exchange it some day for a crown

Verse 2

O the old rugged cross so despised by the world

Has a wondrous attraction for me

For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above

To bear it to dark Calvary

Verse 3

In the old rugged cross stained with blood so divine

A wondrous beauty I see

For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died

To pardon and sanctify me

Verse 4

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true

Its shame and reproach gladly bear

Then He'll call me some day to my home far away

Where His glory forever I'll share

Then sings my soulMy Savior God to TheeHow great Thou artHow great Thou artThen sings my soulMy Savior God to TheeHow great Thou artHow great Thou art
When through the woodsAnd forest glades I wanderAnd hear the birdsSing sweetly in the treesWhen I look downFrom lofty mountain grandeurAnd hear the brookAnd feel the gentle breeze
And when I thinkThat God His Son not sparingSent Him to dieI scarce can take it inThat on the crossMy burden gladly bearingHe bled and diedTo take away my sin
When Christ shall comeWith shout of acclamationAnd take me homeWhat joy shall fill my heartThen I shall bowIn humble adorationAnd there proclaimMy God how great Thou art
