Growing in faith, serving with love
Order for Worship - 3rd Sunday after Pentecost
June 21, 2020
We want to hear from you!
As we continue to prepare for worshiping in the sanctuary, we need your input on how you feel about gathering again. Please have each individual in your household fill out this quick survey. Your participation will help us be the best church we can be as we step forward in this new season.

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. Click here for the meeting agenda.

GATHER & PRAISE
We gather in the Lord’s House that transcends the boundaries of physical walls or buildings. We gather in the Lord’s House that provides belonging for all God’s children. We gather in the Lord’s House, where we can dwell for all eternity. Come, let us worship the Lord in his house together! Lyrics for the hymn are provided in the description on the YouTube page.
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.
Lord, we thank you for giving us your love and New Life in Christ, both of which endure beyond the limits of our mortality. We confess that, too often, we rely on that which is mortal instead of what you give us. When faced with difficult circumstances, we rely on what we can achieve on our own, on wisdom we attain without your help, and our wealth we use to influence rather than your love.
 
Forgive us when we value our own homes above yours. Help us to see the eternal benefits of trusting and following you. Guide us as we make steps everyday to dwell in your house our whole lives long!
 
RECEIVE PEACE
Family, receive this Good News. God’s love is eternal, defeating the strongholds of sin and death for our sake. 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.
