Each Sunday, you will find opportunities to worship individually, with your family, or with small groups. Although we are physically separated from one another, we are united in prayer and praise.
In Jesus’ name, welcome!
First-time participant or one who’s been here many days; child or elder or somewhere in-between; stewards, caretakers, disciples of Jesus, children of God— neighbours all, loved and loving. Welcome. Welcome in Christ’s name!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God, and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
Hymn “Jesus, stand among us”
God of all creation,
Spirit of our hearts,
there is no moment but this one,
there is no time but now,
and so we open ourselves to you.
Wake us from our sleepiness.
Open us to your impossible possibilities.
Help us to be your people, risen people of new life, now and always! Amen.
Hymn “Thine is the glory”
Responsive Hymn “He is Lord”
Prayers of the People
Prayer for Each of us
Loving God, we often come to worship empty.
We come tired, worn down, and seeking meaning.
We come desperate to find our purpose in life.
Sometimes we wonder if we really can touch lives with hope.
We believe, so help us in our unbelief.
We come to be filled, so we open ourselves to you.
(a time of silent prayer)
We become who you intend us to be,
as your light shines within and through us.
Guide us and form us, we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Lead us from death to
life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead us from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead us from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our hearts, our world, our universe.
Affirmation of Faith (A contemporary creed, #360)
We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
And also with you.
Go in peace, to love and serve the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
