ANNOUNCEMENTS

Indoor worship will resume on October 18 at 9 am. In order to maintain a safe worship space for our community, PUMC will adopt several social distancing protocols. These protocols will include: an RSVP system to prevent overcrowding in our sanctuary, adjusted worship practices to minimize physical contact, and a mask requirement for those who would like to participate in indoor worship.

Additionally, for those who are not yet comfortable returning indoors, we will continue to offer Car Church at 11 am (weather permitting) as well as online worship. Our plan is to monitor the participation levels of all our worship services and adjust our Sunday morning schedule to meet demand. Our sincere hope is that we are able to regularly provide you a high-quality worship opportunity no matter your social distancing needs or comfort levels.

Download our App for easy access to all worship opportunities, including bulletins, RSVPs for indoor worship, and Connections Contemporary remote worship!
PRELUDE

"This is My Father's World"
Darlene Skinner
SILENCE

Set a timer for 5 minutes and use a breath prayer.
On the inhale, pray, "I will trust in You..."
On the exhale, pray, "...with all my heart."
OPENING PRAYER

We believe, O Lord,
that you have not abandoned us to the dim light of our own reason
to conduct us to happiness,
but that you have revealed in Holy Scriptures
whatever is necessary for us to believe and practice.
How noble and excellent are the precepts,
how sublime and enlightening the truth,
how persuasive and strong the motives,
how powerful the assistance of your holy religion.
Our delight shall be in your statutes,
and we will not forget your Word. Amen.

SCRIPTURE LESSON

Colossians 3:12-17

12 As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13 Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord[a] has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ[b] dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.[c] 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
