Worship for September 6, 2020



A Prayer for Preparing to Worship:

Holy Spirit, as you inspire us to pray, as your name is praised, and as your word is read and preached, pass among your gathered people,opening minds to increase understanding,
opening hearts to bind us together in your love. Amen.

Welcome - Jeff Foels

Passing of the Peace

We encourage you to contact others in the church, to reach out and connect, to check in on those that might need help, and to let others know the help you need, in mind, body, and spirit, in this uncertain time.


Prayer of the Day


Direct and help us, O Lord, in all our deeds, that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may

glorify your holy name, and finally, by your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.


First Scripture Reading: Psalm 13 - Included in the video from the Presbytery


Psalm 13 To the leader. A Psalm of David. 1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me for ever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I bear pain* in my soul, and have sorrow in my heart all day long? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God! Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death, 4 and my enemy will say, ‘I have prevailed’; my foes will rejoice because I am shaken. 5 But I trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. 6 I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Sermon: Theresa Latini, Mt. Olivet Retreat Conference Center




Second Scripture Reading: Romans 8: 31-39 


31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? 33 Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.’ 

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Closing: Prayers of the People and The Lord’s Prayer 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come,

thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.




Sending
Wherever you are, and wherever you go, hold this with you:

Be in the world in peace;

Have courage;

Hold onto what is good;

Return no one evil for evil;

Support the weak;

Help the suffering;

Honor all God’s children;

Love and serve the Lord, 

Rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.


May God, who creates, redeems, and sustains, keep you steadfast in faith,

buoyant in hope, and abounding in love. And the blessing of God, Father, Son,

and Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always.


Alelluia! Amen.
