How to Use this Service: This order of worship is intended to be a resource for people to worship in their own homes. The service can be led by an individual, or parts can be divided among those present. The message from Pastor Scott can be read and may also include a time for discussion. The suggested prayers may be used, but people are encouraged to include their own prayers as the Spirit guides them. This service will be live streamed on Facebook at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Brief Order for Confession and Forgiveness:
L: As we prepare to worship God, let us confess our sin and our trust in God’s forgiveness.
Kyrie Eleison vs 1 & Chorus
L: In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit
A: Amen
L: Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A: Amen
L: If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God who is faithful and just will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Silence for reflection and self-examination.

Kyrie Eleison vs 2

Most merciful God,
A: we confess that we are captive to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Amen
L: Almighty God, in his mercy, has given his Son to die for us and, for his sake, forgives us all our sins. As a called and ordained minister of the Church of Christ, and by his authority, I therefore declare to you the entire forgiveness of all your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
A: Amen

Hymn of the Day – Oceans

L: Praying in this place and in our own homes yet united in the Spirit, let us together intercede for all the needs of the world.
L: O God our Savior, bless your church around the world. Where believers must be isolated from one another, be present to them through your gracious word. Where Christians are overwhelmed by the anxiety and fear of disease and disruption, save them from the storm and bring peace. Lord in your mercy,
A: Hear our prayer.
L: For the nations and their leaders. In you, steadfast love and faithfulness meet, and righteousness and peace kiss. May nations in conflict know the peace that is the fruit of justice, and the justice that is the path to peace. Lord in your mercy,

Great Thanksgiving

And so, with all the choirs of angels, with the church on earth and the hosts of heaven, we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
A: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
L: In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and eat: this is my body, given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.
Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the remembrance of me.
(At this time, the bread is distributed to the congregation.)

In your love and care, nourish and strengthen those who will receive this sacrament, and give us all the comfort of your abiding presence through the body and blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
(Before we go, announcements are made about events and work that we will be doing as part of God’s mission in the world.)
