A Children’s Worship Sheet is at bottom of this order of worship.
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.

One: Do you remember the first community of faithful ones you joined?
A nursery class who welcomed you with care and open arms?
A youth group who accompanied you with energy and open minds?
A small group meeting in someone’s home?
A congregation, large or small, rural or urban, quiet folk or rowdy ones?
All: We come in praise for those who meet and receive us here.
One: Do you remember the God you have come to worship?
The One who delivered Israel from Egypt; the Maker of Earth and Sky;
the Ground of all Being; the God of Jesus, born of Mary;
All: We come to worship God in remembrance that leads to hope.
