A Joyful, Welcoming, Inclusive Community of Faith

Worship Guide for March 22, 2020

Good morning friends, and a blessed Sunday to you.

For a link to today’s worship service CLICK HERE.

I will also copy below the Worship Guide. But we have planned the service so that you will not need to print anything, or hold anything in your hands, to follow along.

I would also like to thank Joel, for providing our music for today. And to his husband, Rich Holst, for helping out as our camera operator.

Stay well, friends, and stay safe. And please stay in touch!

Love and blessings,

Steve

THE AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

We believe in a bright and amazing God,
who is both far and near,
everywhere and here.

Who created everything that is,
packed atoms with power
and loaves and fishes with wonder,
filling everything that is with the stuff of miracles.

We believe in Christ
whose life blazed with the light of God,
and who calls us to follow him
into the dark places
and to be the light of the world.

We believe in the Living Spirit
who hovered over the waters at creation,
who makes everything holy,
who lives in and through us.

We believe in the power of love to heal,
in the power of truth to set us free,
and in the power of faith and hope
to usher in the Realm of God.

THE OFFERTORY *

PASTORAL PRAYER

BLESSING

* Obviously we cannot receive an offering during these virtual worship experiences. So we invite you to send in your offering or your regular commitment, and each week, as we receive those, we will place your gifts in the offering plate (without looking at the amount). We will give thanks for them, and dedicate them to God’s service, as we ordinarily do. The church’s mailing address, along with a new online giving option:  CLICK HERE.
