VIRTUAL WORSHIP

July 19, 2020

Updated about noon on Sunday.

Welcome

What a beautiful day we have together – time to worship God, enjoy his creation, and celebrate the gift of life. Here is the service for today, July 19, 2020.

I pray you find hope for your week in the music and Word for the day.

Pastor Luke

Confession and Forgiveness

Blessed be the holy Trinity, +one God, whose steadfast love is everlasting, whose faithfulness endures from generation to generation. Amen.

Trusting in the mercy of God, let us confess our sin.

Silence for personal reflection.

Reconciling God,

We confess that we do not trust your abundance, and we deny your presence in our lives. We place our hope in ourselves and rely on our own efforts. We fail to believe that you provide enough for all. We abuse your good creation for our own benefit. We fear difference and do not welcome others as you have welcomed us. We sin in thought, word and deed. By your grace, forgive us; through your love, renew us; and in your Spirit, lead us; so that we may live and serve you in newness of life. Amen.

Beloved of God, by the radical abundance of divine mercy we have peace with God through +Christ Jesus, through whom we have obtained grace upon grace. Our sins are forgiven. Let us live now in hope, for hope does not disappoint, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Amen

Prayer of the Day

Teach us, good Lord God, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, except that of knowing that we do your will, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Music

Here I am to worship- Julia Brutger

1.Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness,Opened my eyes, let me seeBeauty that made this heart adore you,Hope of a life spent with you. Chorus: Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,Here I am to say that You're my God,You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy,Altogether wonderful to me. 2. King of all days, oh so highly exalted,Glorious in heaven above.Humbly You came to the earth You created,All for love's sake become poor.Chorus Bridge 2x: And I'll never know how much it costTo see my sin upon that cross. Chorus

Words of Institution

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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Music

This is my Father’s World – Tim and Sophie Hanson

Benediction

Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. God, the creator, +Jesus, the Christ, and the Holy Spirit, the comforter, bless you and keep you in eternal love. Amen.
