Service Preparation and Liturgy | August 2, 2020

Micah Dailey / August 1, 2020

Gather

Before service begins, prepare the following items:

  • Communion elements – the bread and juice represents Jesus’ body and blood.
  • A candle – this signifies Jesus’ life with us.
  • Your Bible.
  • A journal or piece of paper and a pen for each person in the room.

If you are with others, gather in the same room, be still, and light the candle. Set out communion, but wait to partake until you are prompted by Wayne and Aaron later in the service.

Live Stream Chat

When the live stream begins, we encourage you to join the chat room on Facebook or YouTube and say hello to one another as a form of greeting!

Giving

A sacred part of our worship is Generosity, and it is especially important now to care for our church family and community in the midst of crisis! As you prepare for service, click the button below to give online.

Service Participation

During our online service, you’ll be invited to participate in these ways:

Stillness

Close your eyes together and spend some time in silence. Wait for your body and mind to be present.

Gratitude

Give thanks to Jesus for His presence with us and spend time praying out loud for one another, the church body, and our city.

Scripture Reading

We will read the following passage aloud during our live stream:

2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (ESV)

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 

18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Activation

Make space for intentional listening. Make sure to have a pen and paper/journal available to write down what you’re hearing. 

Invite God to reveal anything he would desire in you.  What is he showing you? 

Ask the the Holy Spirit to help you discern what he is leading you to do.  What do you sense he is saying?
