Service Preparation and Liturgy | June 7, 2020

Micah Dailey / June 6, 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.

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:

Hebrews 13:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters.

 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. 

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Activation

Pray and ask God to bring to mind 3 different people that He wants you to bless and serve over the next few weeks.  Try to intentionally seek out a person in the church family, someone who is different than you or a stranger, and someone who is mistreated or imprisoned. Once God lays these 3 people on your heart, write down what God wants you to do with/for them, and carry it out.
