Online Worship

May 31, 2020

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 Online Worship Attendance form found at the bottom of this page.

Spirit of God, Descend upon My Heart  MORECAMBE

Gathering Together

the joyce family | liturgists

Come to Jesus, you who are thirsty. 



Drink deeply of the Holy Spirit.  



Let your heart overflow with the living water that renews the face of the earth. 

Alleluia! Thanks be to God. 


Now, let us pray. 


Holy God, 

like a rushing wind your Spirit moved upon the first disciples on the day of Pentecost, 

and like a purifying fire your Spirit seared their hearts and minds with the message of salvation. 

Send your Spirit upon your church in this time and place, 

stir up our courage, and rouse us for prophetic witness, that we may join with them to proclaim to the world your mighty deeds of power in Jesus Christ.

Prayers for The Community

Let us unite our hearts and minds in prayer for our world, saying,  

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

For the church throughout the world, 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

Inspire the sons and daughters of your church  

for prophetic witness to your truth, 

and upon old and young give clarity of vision 

to acknowledge your saving power in the world. 

For nations of the world and its leaders,  

especially President Trump, Governor Northam. 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

Overcome the babble of misunderstanding  

among the nations, 

and let all people hear in their own language and  

recognize in their own culture 

your unifying message of love. 

For planet Earth, our home,  

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

By your Spirit, renew the earth, 

make us good stewards of its resources, 

and teach us to enjoy its abundance rightly. 

For those in need of healing, 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

Send your healing Spirit upon those who are sick in body or mind, 

restore them to health, 

and restore to them the joy of salvation. 

Send your peace and strength to caregivers – nurses, doctors, technicians – who care the the vulnerable, ill, and forgotten.  

For our neighbors and members of our civic community, 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

Teach us to be good neighbors, 

to live in peace with one another, 

and in friendship share the joys and burdens of daily life. 

For our children, 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 

Bless our children, protect them from danger, 

and help parents and caregivers nurture them 

so that they may mature in wisdom and grow in grace. 

For our enemies, 

Almighty God, hear our prayer. 


Bless our enemies  

and show us how we may do good to them  

for the sake of Jesus Christ. 


Eternal God, we give you thanks and praise for the ministries that tend to those elder, older, and wiser among us, and yet still very much children of yours. As a loving earthly parent would enjoy seeing their child grow and mature in years, you as our loving heavenly Father are pleased to see us grow and mature as well. We pray your blessings upon all those that are enjoying the lattermost fullness of life in these days, the fullness that comes with a life well lived, loved, and served in your Kingdom, and the confidence "that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." 



In your mercy, Almighty God, receive our prayers  

and, according to your wisdom, 

provide all that we need; 

by the power of the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ who taught us to pray… 


The Lord's Prayer

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,

For ever and ever
