October 25, 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

Gather in a common area in your home.
In your midst, place a lit candle to remind you of God’s presence with you.

 

Gathering Prayer

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
In you, we come home—to rest, to wrestle, to love, to be loved.
We dwell in you.
Before the mountains were born, before you delivered the whole world,
from everlasting past to everlasting future, you are God.
In you, we are home—

we dream, we flourish, we fade, we rejoice.
We dwell in you.

Amen
 

 


 
Song words:

Everlasting God

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord

Our God You reign forever
Our Hope our strong Deliv’rer

You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won’t grow weary
You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

Ending:

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord


Scripture Reading for the Day:
 

1 John 4:7-12:

7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Closing Song:
Song words:

The Servant Song

Will you let me be your servant
Let me be as Christ to you
Pray that I might have the grace to
Let you be my servant too

We are pilgrims on a journey
Here together on the road
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and share the load

I will hold the Christ-light for you
In the night time of your fear
I will hold my hand out to you
Speak the peace you long to hear

I will weep when you are weeping
When you laugh I’ll laugh with you
I will share your joy and sorrow
Till we’ve seen this journey through

When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony
Born of all we’ve known together
Of Christ’s love and agony

 


Closing Prayer:

As our worship concludes, our time of service begins.
We return to our living and working amidst a world of need
As we go from this place,
we carry with us the knowledge that we are recipients of God’s gifts.
As we go, we want to share those gifts with the world around us.
And may God walk with us as we travel life’s road.

 

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.
