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.

      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.
