Gather your communion elements - bread and juice or something like them!

Get into a worshipful frame of mind by listening and singing along with these songs (click on the song title to listen):

Prepare Your Space:
  • minimize distractions online and around you
  • light a candle and place near you to remind yourself that the light of Christ is with us 
  • open your Bible to the book of Matthew
  • open or print the Worship Guide so you can follow along with the unison and responsive prayers
  • pray for your pastor!

Update Regarding In-Person Worship
