Online Worship

January 17, 2021

Sunday Worship

Welcome to this time of worship. While we may not be gathered in the same worship space, we are held together in Christ. Even though you may be at home, our Lord promises that where two or three are gathered in his name, he too is present.

This order of worship can be used alongside our online worship service or done together as a family around the kitchen table or on the couch. Know that while we may not be worshiping in the same space, the peace of Christ is with us.

Make your worship space at home comfortable. We invite you to light a candle as you are able to serve as a reminder of God’s presence with each of us.

How to use this worship service

The bolded words are designated for a group response.

If you are using this outside of our online worship service other readings can be read by one or multiple people gathered to worship. All present are invited and encouraged to lead as they are able.

Please log your participation using the attendance form at the bottom of this page.

The one who calls you together this day 

yearns for each of you and for all people to hear  

and be blessed. 

Speak, Lord, for your servants are listening. 

Blessed is the One who comes bringing  

trustworthy words 

for the healing of the world. 

Speak, Lord, for your servants are listening. 


Now, let us pray together. 


You invite us, O God, to live in your ways,  

and you give us to each other to know and to love  

as we journey in this life.  

Show us your will for all creation.  

Help us to listen to your urgings with prayerful hearts  

so that we may honor what you have made,  

in the name of the holy Trinity, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Prayers of the Community

the ressler family

Let us pray for all the earth, the church, and all those in need, saying,  

God of grace, hear our prayer. 

Let us pray for the world:  

for leaders of nations,  

that wisdom and integrity will prevail for the good of all people,  

especially the poor;  

for regions torn by conflict, that peace may reign  

and living become an enterprise of construction rather than destruction; 

God of grace, hear our prayer. 

Let us pray for all people of faith:  

for the unity of the body of Christ,  

that divisions might not turn people away from the church;  

for all people who nurture life in the name of a greater good;  

God of grace, hear our prayer. 

Let us pray for our own nation:  

for the president and Congress, the Supreme Court and all judges,  

for state governments, city councils, school boards,  

and all who have power to make policy,  

that all consideration be given  

to what is most healthy for people and creatures;  

God of grace, hear our prayer. 

Let us pray for those in need:  

for all who are hungry in our nation and world,  

for those who have no home and no employment,  

for those who are either unjustly or justly imprisoned,  

for parents and children who live in fear for any reason,  

and for all who are in mourning;  

God of grace, hear our prayer. 

With thanksgiving,  

we remember all those who have shaped us in your ways, O God.  

Receive our prayers and grant whatever you see  

that your people need;  

through Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray  


Our 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 trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
