Be deliberate in your worship this morning.  It's a bummer we can't worship together....but God knows what's going on and He is pleased with your worship...whatever it looks like.  Hear the words of Jesus in John 4.23: 


"True worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth, for they are the kind of  worshipers the Father seeks."  


Relax.  Take a deep breath.  Thank God for the beauty of this moment and ask him to reveal himself to you during this time.  


WORSHIP THROUGH SINGING (Sing along with Madeleine) 







SPECIAL MUSIC  (Nice relaxing piano piece by Madeleine to prepare our hearts to hear God's word) 




Use this time to share with God any needs and concerns that you have knowing that He wants us to do this!  Pray for those on our prayer list HERE.  


A Prayer for our current situation:

But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Gal. 5:13-14


    Heavenly Father, first and foremost, we are so grateful for the freedoms we have in Jesus. Freedom from condemnation for our sin. Freedom from the Law’s demands. Freedom from guilt and shame. Freedom from the fear of death. Freedom to come boldly to your throne of grace… to name just a few. Hallelujah, and thank you.


But emerging freedoms from pandemic restrictions are a different kind of freedom. Some of us are ready to “break free” from in-home confinement. Some of us are desperate for our next paycheck. Some of us fear the easing of restrictions is too much too soon. Help us, Father. Many of us view these matters quite differently.


As your children, help us know what serving one another in love needs to look like as we move forward in this pandemic. The scenarios, infections, and medical resources vary from place to place. Precisely because we belong to Jesus, we want to be wise, careful, and generous with each other.


We earnestly pray for governors and mayors, business and healthcare leaders. Grant them collaborative wisdom, mutual respect, and providential guidance.


May our faith express itself in love, our fears be arrested by confidence in your sovereignty, and our choices be shaped by the truth and riches of the Gospel. We are so ready for this pandemic to be over; but we are even more zealous to bring you glory in all we do. So very Amen we pray, in Jesus’ merciful and mighty name.


Taken from Scotty Smith's prayers, April 22, 2020 (I've often read his prayers in our worship service)




Use this time to thank God for his many blessings and provision in your life.   

(Don't forget to say 'thank you' to God and worship him in your giving--you may send in your tithes and offerings by mail or through your bank's online bill pay or safely through this website HERE). You may also drop your offerings between the double doors in the atrium on the east side of the church building.




WORSHIP THROUGH GOD'S WORD - Open your bibles to Exodus 5  (it's always good to follow along!) 


Listen to Pastor Greg's Sermon : DEALING WITH DISCOURAGMENT 


Please view the sermon outline and reflection questions HERE (we will discuss them at our Mid-week Meet-up on Zoom this Wednesday)



BENEDICTION: (based on John 16.33) 


As you step back from this time of worship.....


May you go about your day knowing that no matter what you encounter, Jesus has already defeated it.  


May God grant you a peace deep in your soul, so that anything that confronts you this week will not take your peace, but may you allow the Holy Spirit to reassure you that it is something that you have already overcome.  Amen.



Depart from this worship time in peace and have a great week!
