Hymn: O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Call to Worship
This morning we are on a path to our God. Winding through the ordinary, weaving through the busyness, overcoming roadblocks and detours. A way to go home, leaving the past in the past and moving from darkness to light. Advent is a path to our God that provides an opportunity to hear God's voice.

Hymn: In Christ There is No East or West
Call to Worship
Praise the Lord, all ye nations, extol him and praise his name. For great is his steadfast love that is given to each of us this day. The great faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on each of them. I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord. On this Sabbath mornings let us praise the Lord.
The video posted below has just the sermon through the pastoral prayer. Please take some time to read the rest of the service, which is produced in text below.
Hymn: Now Thank We All Our God
Call to Worship
Jesus calls us to servant ministry.
We must be willing to help others, not counting the cost or rewards.
Pretense, disharmony, greed have no place in discipleship.
Serving God means receiving each person as though they were a beloved child. Lord, help us to truly become your disciples. Create in each of us hearts of ministry and compassion and kindness.
Happy Memorial Day!
When we meet together, we usually share both our joys and concerns. Pause for a few minutes to reflect on your week. Pray in thanksgiving for the good things that have happened, and pray for any worries and concerns. Please share those you feel comfortable letting others know below.
During Lent, we shared both on our website and on our Facebook page devotionals written by church members in past years. This served as a nice way to connect, even after we stopped meeting in person. Because it will still be some time before we are physically together, we thought that continuing some devotions would be a great way to continue reaching out.
Pick out a few verses or a passage of scripture that mean something to you. Write a paragraph or two (or more, if you need to!) about your reflections on that passage, and a small prayer. Email that to the church's email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We plan to share these on both the church website and Facebook page.

We like to share our joys and concerns. Pause for a moment, and reflect on your week. What caused you worry or concern? What made you feel joy or contentment? Now, pray over those things, both joys and concerns. If you would like, you can share some in the comments for others to pray for you as well.
