Children’s Worship sheet for today is at the bottom of this document.

A caution regarding Prayers of the People online:

Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”).  In  a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e.  “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief”  etc.  Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.
