Growing in faith, serving with love
Order for Worship - 2nd Sunday after Pentecost
June 14, 2020
ANNOUNCEMENT
 There will be a congregational meeting on Sunday, June 28 in the church parking lot following the 11am drive-in prayer service. The purpose of the meeting is to amend the bylaws and act on the recommendations of the Nominating Committee. More details will be sent out in the coming weeks.

GATHER & PRAISE
Come to the abundant fountain of God’s love to worship. Come, and receive God’s abundant blessings. Come, and be transformed by God’s abundant presence. Come, and be filled with wisdom and courage to know and follow Christ. Come, and worship the Lord!  
CONFESS
Family, God’s Spirit gives us a constant source of mercy, comfort, and reconciliation. With confidence in the forgiveness that follows, let us confess to God where we have fallen short.
 
Pray aloud in unison with others who are gathered, both in body and spirit.
Too often, Lord, we rely on our own strength, our own smarts, and our own resources to tackle life’s challenges. Too often, Lord, we lose hope when faced with what we deem impossible to achieve. Too often, Lord, we do not trust in you to provide what we need to face the day and follow your Son.
 
Forgive us, Lord, when we don’t trust you. Forgive us, Lord, when we operate out of scarcity instead of lean into your abundance. Forgive us, Lord, when our own fears lead us to hoard what you have given us. Fill us with the abundance of your love, and strengthen us for the journey of faith and discipleship.
 
RECEIVE PEACE
Family, receive this Good News. God’s love is given as abundantly as it is freely. In that love is a path to reconcile, be filled with peace, and a means to follow Christ at every moment. Be at peace with God and one another, for in Christ, we are all forgiven.

SERMON SERIES
Promise Keeper: God’s Promises Found in Psalm 23
Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known and read passages in the Bible. It’s been a source of comfort and guidance for the church for thousands of years. As beautiful as it is to read, it also points us to many promises God gives us. As people who believe in the miracle of Easter, we know that Christ is the fruition of all God’s promises. For six weeks, we will walk through Psalm 23 to see how God’s promises known to us in Jesus Christ can help strengthen our faith, both in seasons of blessings and seasons of hardship.
