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.

Responsive Intent

Gathered together
      we look for what will be.
Expecting to worship
      we settle our bodies and still our minds.
Feeling our hearts beat
      we know our own potential.
Alive to all that is around us
      we are awake to possibilities.
The Spirit is gently moving
      we become a worshipping community.
We are ready to pray, to sing, to listen
      we are ready to worship.

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer

     Our Mother-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.
     And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
     For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
