Worship for Sunday April 19th, 2020:
Step One: Begin with a time of silence to ready your heart and your spirit for worship. (Images taken Friday am outside the church)
Step Two: Lead Us Heavenward by Jeff Mark Widenhofer
Step Three: Affirm our faith: (Read aloud) Heidelberg Catechism question and answer #1!
What is your only comfort in life and in death?
That I am not my own, but belong – body and soul, in life and in death –
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven:
In fact, all things must work together for my salvation.
Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for him.
Step Four: Sing to the Lord
10 Thousand Reasons, Matt Redman

1 Cor 6:12; Pr 25:28; Ph 3:19-20, Ro 14:17-18

Step Six: Prayer: Speak The Lord’s Prayer in unison with God’s people around the world:
Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed by your name;
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
(Add your own prayers)
End with: For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever,
Step Seven: Choose one or two of the following music responses:
It is Well, Kristene DiMarco
