Order of Worship

Sunday April 26, 2020



O give thanks to the Lord, who is good,

whose steadfast love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

whom the Lord has redeemed from trouble.

Some wandered in the desert wastes,

Finding no way to a city in which to dwell;

Hungry and thirsty,

their soul fainted within them.

Then in their trouble, they cried to the Lord,

who delivered them from their distress,

And led them by a straight way,

till they reached a city in which to dwell.

Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,

for his wonderful works to humankind.

For the Lord satisfies those who are thirsty,

and fills the hungry with good things.

HYMN “To God be the Glory” #98 UMH

Opening Prayer

Almighty God, through your only Son you overcame death

And opened to us the gate of everlasting life.

Grant that we who celebrate our Lord’s resurrection,

by the renewing of your Spirit,

arise from death of sin to the life of righteousness;

through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Love Feast and Mission Moment Deacon Vivian Waltz

Luke 24:13-35

SERMON “Ransomed by Christ” Rev. David Nicol

HYMN “I Know Whom I have Believed” #714


Please send a heart on this video to show your brothers and sisters in Christ we are thinking of them.




Thank you, Creator of the Universe,

For the people gathered around us today.

We give thanks for the things of the earth that give us the means of life.

Thank you for the plants, animals, and birds

That we use as food and medicine.

Thank you for the natural world,

In which we find the means to be clothed and housed.

Thank you, Lord, for the ability

to use these gifts of the natural world.

Help us to see our place among these gifts,

Not to squander them or think of them as means for selfish gain.

May we respect the life you all you have made.

May our spirits be strengthened by using only what we need,

And may we use our strengths to help those who need us. Amen.

Grant, Almighty God,

that all who confess your name shall be united in your truth,

live together in your love, and reveal your glory in the world.

In the ways of justice and peace;

That we may honor one another and serve the common good.

And grant that we may serve Christ in them,

And love one another as Christ loves us.

Give them courage and hope in their troubles,

And bring them the joy of your salvation.

We commend to your mercy all who have died,

That your will for them may be fulfilled;

And we pray that we may share with all your saints

In your eternal kingdom.
