Online Worship

August 9, 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 attendance form at the bottom of this page.

Gathering Together

the chistolini family | liturgists

God lifts us from death to life and preserves us for God’s purposes through the compassion of Jesus Christ our Lord and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

With thanksgiving, praise the Lord! 


Now, let us pray together. 


Son of God, you walk on the waters of turmoil to meet us in the midst of your purposed journey for our lives. 

Help us to recognize your presence, remember your promise, rely on your power, and receive your peace through every storm.

Prayers for The Community

the chistolini family

Let us pray for the needs of the world, saying, 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you. 


God of favor and purpose, 

You have clothed us with a robe of righteousness. You have directed us to our destiny. You are with us in our deepest pain, fear, and bewilderment. 

You hear our cry when others turn a deaf ear and a cold heart. You lift us from the depths of discouragement and walk with us over the troubled waters of life. 

We come to you now with confidence on behalf of the church, the world, and all in need: 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.   

For the family of God, our sisters and brothers who belong to you throughout the world. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.  

For your church to fulfill its mission in the world, showing mercy, proclaiming your good news. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.  

For peace and order to permeate your creation, responding to your commands. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.  

For reconciliation among families, factions, and nations living in envy and conflict. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.  

For those betrayed, beaten, thrown down, or abandoned, those in bondage, fear, or distress. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.   

For those who have crossed before us to the other side of life’s lake. 

Save us, O Lord, we come to you.  

Clothe us with your favor and love; inspire us with dreams from you. Hold us up when we falter in the storm, and bring us safely to your promised place of rest and release. 

We pray it all in Jesus’ name 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
