Lord’s Day Service – March 29, 2020

Published March 26, 2020 by Scott Aniol in Services

Due to COVID-19, this service is designed for our church families to use in homes and small groups. You can download a one-page printable service order below, PDFs of each hymn, and either mp3 or YouTube video piano accompaniments for each hymn. We hope this enables our congregation to worship “together” even though we won’t be together physically.

Though we are apart physically, we share a spiritual union with one another and with God through the High Priestly ministry of Jesus Christ. As individual Christians and as a body, we draw near to worship God through his mediation on our behalf.

Corporate Prayer of Confession

Almighty and most merciful Father,
we are thankful that your mercy is higher than the heavens,
wider than our wanderings, deeper than all our sin.
Forgive our careless attitudes toward your purposes,
our refusal to relieve the suffering of others,
our envy of those who have more than we have,
our obsession with creating a life of constant pleasure,
our indifference to the treasures of heaven,
our neglect of your wise and gracious law.
Help us to change our way of life
so that we may desire what is good,
love what you love, and do what you command,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
