Hybrid Worship
21 November 2021
Good Morning - Welcome to Hybrid Worship!

We're continuing with a single service at 10:15 am, in the sanctuary, on Zoom, and streaming live to YouTube. Our Covenant talks about being "intentionally pointed toward the future." Using technology to share our core values is part of that!

It's a big beautiful Sunday! No matter who you are or how you participate (coming to the campus to joining online), YOU ARE WELCOME AND LOVED.
We Covenant One With Another
Spiritual Formation
Join us for Adult Spiritual Formation by Zoom at 9:00 am or show up in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room! Today, we're taking a look at the range of stories in scripture with women characters. Everyone is welcome - come prepared for challenges and surprises, experience and growth.

Next week (November 28), the 9 o'clock hour is a special event: an Advent "Y'all Come" Sing Along. Singers and listeners are welcome in the sanctuary and on Zoom. Thanks Forrest and Julie for making this possible.

Celebrations and Prayer Concerns

Our Whole Lives Liturgy (adapted from "Good Is the Flesh" by Brian Wren)
One: Good is the body from cradle to grave, growing and aging, arousing, impaired.
All: Good is the pleasure of God in our flesh, Good is the flesh that the Word has become.
One: Good is the pleasure of God in our Flesh, longing in all, as in Jesus, to dwell.
All: Good is the body, for good and for God, Good is the flesh that the Word has become. Amen!
One: We give thanks for all those involved in Our Whole Lives: curriculum writers and testers, trainers and facilitators, parents and young folks!
All: This ministry blesses the world! This ministry blesses our community! Amen!

All: May we love all and serve all.
