June 28, 2020 – SCATTERED BUT WORSHIPPING TOGETHER


As you make your way through today’s worship service, instructions and suggestions will be included in italics. Get a cup of coffee and settle in for this time of worship with your community.


Welcome to Worship

At 11 am gather in a common area in your home.
In the centre, place a lit candle.

 

Gathering Prayer

God – we gather in your presence.
Father – we long for more of you.
Jesus – we place you at the centre.
Holy Spirit – come and fill our time together.
Help us to be fully present here,
to your word, to one another,
and to the world you love.
Amen.
 
Song words:

Crown Him With Many Crowns

Crown Him with many crowns
The Lamb upon His throne
Hark how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own

Awake my soul and sing
Of Him who died for thee
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Thro’ all eternity

Crown Him the Lord of life
Who triumphed o’er the grave
Who rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save

His glories now we sing
Who died and reigns on high
Who died eternal life to bring
And lives that death may die

Crown Him the Lord of love
Behold His hands and side
Rich wounds yet visible above
In beauty glorified

No angels in the sky
Can fully bear that sight
But downward bend their wondring eyes
At mysteries so bright

Crown him the Lord of years
The potentate of time
Creator of the rolling spheres
Ineffably sublime

All hail, Redeemer hail
For thou hast died for me
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
Through all eternity

Song words:

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)

Bless the Lord O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Bless the Lord O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

Bless the Lord O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Bless the Lord O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

I’ll worship Your holy name
Lord I’ll worship Your holy name

Scripture Reading for the Day – 
Invite someone to read aloud.

Ecclesiastes 7 (NLT)

A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfume.
    And the day you die is better than the day you are born.
Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties.
    After all, everyone dies—
    so the living should take this to heart.
Sorrow is better than laughter,
    for sadness has a refining influence on us.
A wise person thinks a lot about death,
    while a fool thinks only about having a good time.

Better to be criticized by a wise person
    than to be praised by a fool.
A fool’s laughter is quickly gone,
    like thorns crackling in a fire.
    This also is meaningless.

Extortion turns wise people into fools,
    and bribes corrupt the heart.

Finishing is better than starting.
    Patience is better than pride.

Control your temper,
    for anger labels you a fool.

10 Don’t long for “the good old days.”
    This is not wise.

11 Wisdom is even better when you have money.
    Both are a benefit as you go through life.
12 Wisdom and money can get you almost anything,
    but only wisdom can save your life.

13 Accept the way God does things,
    for who can straighten what he has made crooked?
14 Enjoy prosperity while you can,
    but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God.
    Remember that nothing is certain in this life.

Story Time for the Young & Young at Heart  with Pastor Marc

With some help from his kids…

 

Closing Prayer

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.
