Online Worship

October 18, 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.

Dwelling in the presence of God with us, let us boldly pray for the church, the world, and all in need.  

 

God of wisdom, open our ears to hear your grace through the words and deeds of children. Inspire the youngest and oldest in our midst to learn from one another with humility and patience. Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

God of creation, praise to you for hills and mountains, fruits trees and forests, animals wild and tame, sea monsters, birds, and reptiles. Spark delight in our hearts for all that you have made. Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

God of hope, call us to peace and bind us together in perfect unity. Make wars to cease. Guide the leaders of nations in you way of wisdom, compassion, and tolerance. Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

God of healing, mend the broken hearts of those who suffer this day. Treasure everyone who struggles with addiction, loneliness, hunger, underemployment, mental illness, or sickness. We pray especially for… Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

God of life, draw us into the body of Christ and make us grow in faith and hope. Fill us with hearts of thanksgiving made visible in our words and actions for the sake of the whole world. Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

God of delight, fill us with songs of praise and hope even in the midst of despair and death. Comfort the grieving Strengthen our faith until the day we will be gathered around your throne singing in eternal praise. Hear us, O God. 

 

Your mercy is great. 

 

Trusting in the presence of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, we commend all for whom we pray, and boldly pray as Christ taught us, saying… 

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

Amen
