Call to Worship
This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Hymn of Praise
"Praise to the Lord, The Almighty” performed by Sovereign Grace Music, Bob Kauflin
I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
God of grace and mercy, you are the source of the true healing that can make us whole. We remember this morning that Jesus’ ministry was deeply involved in both healing of people’s bodies and healing of relationships. As we take time now in worship to offer our gifts to you, we pray that they might be used to bring healing – of body, of spirit, of broken relationships – to people who are in desperate need. This we pray this in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
A big thank you to everyone who has been able to financially support the church with their tithe or offering during this time of pandemic and economic hardship.

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, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Hymn of Reflection
Take this time to pray, to sing, to reflect on the message, ask God how you should respond, ask God for help.
"My Faith Looks Up to Thee” performed by Islington Baptist Church
We are being sent into a world in need of healing. We have been given all that we need to be God’s messengers of peace. Go now into the world, rejoicing in God’s presence with you. Bring the news of peace and hope to all you meet. Amen.
During these unique times, I am deeply thankful each of you has joined us in this very special way to gather and worship the Lord our God.
In Christ, Pastor Abe Zimmerman
