Greeting/Announcements: Pastor Karen

Greeting from Pastor Karen

Opening Sentences: Bob and Marialice Mauch

Happy are the people

Who do not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path that they follow, or sit in the seat of people who make fun of others.

Their delight is in the law of the Lord, And they meditate on God’s law day and night.

The Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Gathering Prayer: Marialice Mauch

Hymn: My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

  1. My Shepherd will supply my need; Jehovah is His Name; In pastures fresh He makes me feed Beside the living stream. He brings my wand’ring spirit back When I forsake His ways, And leads me, for His mercy’s sake, In paths of truth and grace.
  2. When I walk thru the shades of death, Thy presence is my stay; A word of Thy supporting breath Drives all my fears away. Thy hand, in sight of all my foes, Doth still my table spread; My cup with blessings overflows; Thine oil anoints my head.
  3. The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days; O may Thy house be mine abode, And all my work be praise! There would I find a settled rest (While others go and come), No more a stranger or a guest, But like a child at home.

Confession and Pardon: James 3:18, Proverbs 31:30

Confession and Pardon

God of wisdom, forgive our foolishness. We desire what we do not need and corrupt our relationships with envy. You urge us to gentleness, but we stir up conflict. Give us your grace that we may harvest righteousness and peace, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Teacher, we pray. Amen.  

Time with Children and Youth

Here are the masks that women in our community made for me.
Are you wearing a mask? Will you send a photo or video of yourself in your mask so I can see you?

Song for Children and Youth: Every Move I Make

O Lord, we thank you for the wealth you shower on us daily and we witness the marvelous goodness that comes from you. Transform our gifts into signs of welcome for all who are touched by their use. Transform us into people who bless others throughout each day, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
