Join Us As We Worship Together

Sunday, July 5, 2020, 10:00 am U.S. Eastern Time

We worship together LIVE using Zoom.  Join us by computer, smartphone, or tablet for video & audio, or using any telephone for just audio. ZOOM Recordings are now available  (click on link with camera above).

What a special Sunday for us all this week! Our six Confirmation Seekers – Katie Brandon, Brooke Farfone, Caroline Henley, Madison Orris, Sarah Quinn and Max White –  planned the worship service and will be leading us.

In the summer series, Love Carved in Stone, they chose the Fifth Commandment to be their focus. In “honoring our fathers and mothers,” how appropriate that it is the weekend we celebrate what our forefathers and foremothers did for us in the Declaration of Independence!

Not only does this service include special music and a Children’s Moment; but we also will be receiving new members and celebrating the sacraments of Baptism and Communion. So invite your family and friends, far and wide, to join in the joy of worshipping together this Sunday!

Here are some ways to prepare our hearts and minds for worship:

  1. For the elements of the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, please have a piece of bread or cracker and grape juice to drink. Please use what you already have at home as you do not need to go to the store.
  2. Set up a special place to worship with the elements. You may want a cross or some symbol of the Resurrection; a Bible; the Worship Guide and Children’s Worship Guide
  3. Pray and read the scripture for worship: Exodus 20:1-12

I hold you all in my prayers that by the Holy Spirit we are one in Christ wherever we are this Sunday!
