Sunday On-Line Services

Although we are unable to meet in person as a church family for a season, we pray this guided worship experience will help you honor our Savior and King, receive encouragement from His Word, and stay connected as a church family.

Our Youth and children's Ministers has prepared A video Bible class for youth to use at home with your family.

 

 

Let’s continue to pray for one another. Please take a moment to complete a prayer request form if you need prayers.

call to worship

Isaiah 43:1-3
But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Communion Meditation and Prayer

For the Christian, nothing in this world compares to this meal. In it we are reminded of the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ - His dying in our place; taking the wrath that we deserve, so that we might receive forgiveness and favor with God. As in the Old Testament practice of Passover, the blood covers, God’s wrath is averted, and the sacrifice is eaten. Likewise, we partake of our sacrificial lamb, and remember and receive His grace freely given to us. We eat the bread and drink from the cup and we are brought near, by God’s Holy Spirit, to Jesus.
There is no meal that satisfies our emptiness like this meal. No comfort food reminds us of Jesus and ministers to our aching souls. No other food and drink strengthens and sustains our spirits. No other meal gives us true and lasting hope. No other meal convicts us of sin, and reminds us of God’s grace. No other meal takes our heart-breaking circumstances and tells us not to lose heart. No other meal points us to the reality of Christ; where burdens that seem too heavy and too long are comparatively slight and momentary; where we focus on the unseen and eternal, instead of the visible and transient things of this world.
This meal is good news for sinners, and because it is so precious we are told to approach it with great respect. The Apostle Paul tell us, “Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord.” He goes on to say, “Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.”
There is no meal like this one. No other meal that causes us to stop and examine our hearts before we eat. No other meal that corrects our doubts and reminds us of our eternal hope.
This morning, many of us come to the Lord’s Table with heavy hearts, with earth-shaking news; yet by this meal we are given sustaining grace, and the hope of glory, because Christ is near to the broken-hearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Prayer:

Father,
Knowing the nearness of Jesus both now and at His second coming … it is only reasonable that we be a people who rejoice.
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.”
We give thanks for this meal that reminds us why we ought to continually come back to joy. We give thanks for your Son, Jesus, our savior and friend. All that burdens us can be brought to you by prayer and supplication and with thanksgiving because Jesus is our savior and friend – interceding on our behalf. Thank you for supplying us with your peace, for guarding our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus; for graciously sending your one and only Son to die in our place, and for resurrecting Him from the dead, so that we might have ever-lasting life.
We pray, with joy, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer

Father, life gets busy, and at times we lose track of the most important thing, and that is worshiping you. Forgive us for putting our schedules before you. Give us the grace to continue fellow shipping with other Christians for the glory of your name. Thank you for ministering to our hearts. Let worship be a lifestyle to everyone that is reading this and not just something we do on Sundays or Wednesdays.

Father, thank you for the gift of life. You have given us the gift of life, it’s not because we are good but because you are an awesome Father. Help us to remain humble in everything that we do so that your light may shine upon men through us. May we become useful vessels that bring glory to your name. In Jesus’ name,

Amen
