You can find a Children’s Worship Sheet at bottom of this order.

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

One: Our eyes are heavy. Our hope is soaring. We wait in the marketplace.
All: Our God is gracious.
One: Our feet are tired. Our expectations rise. We are hired first.
All: Our God is merciful.
One: Our backs are sore. Our spirits are low. We are paid last.
  All: Our God is slow to anger.
One: Our temples flare. Our anger rages. We take what belongs to us.
  All: Our God abounds in steadfast love.

Prayers, 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. Amen.
