As we continue through this time of not gathering physically together, our worship services will be available online for your use. After Sunday morning, you can go through the parts of the worship service and watch the sermon below.


At 11am CT each Sunday morning we gather with Pastor Kim via Zoom for worship and

a chance to say 'Hi!'. Everyone is invited to join us!


The current week's Zoom information will be posted on that Sunday’s worship page under the Connect menu.


Sunday School lessons for children and youth can be found here.

Call to Worship


You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,

and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Drawn by love, we come, to offer our whole selves in Christ’s service.

Let us worship the Lord!


Prayer of Praise


Call to Confession

The Lord gives us commandments to govern our relationships

with both Creator and creation.

But, too often, we disregard Christ’s teachings

and disobey God’s law. Disciples of Jesus, let us tell the truth

about the ways we have stumbled on our walk of faith.


Prayer of Confession


O God, we know this, your Greatest Commandment:

love the Lord with heart, soul, and mind; love your neighbor as yourself.

These words dwell in our hearts and rest on our lips.

And, yet, we are so slow to act upon them.

When we encounter neighbors in need we are quick to pass judgment,

even though love demands empathy.

We see your children suffering, but are too busy, too weary to respond,

even though love demands compassion.

We see unjust systems that strip others of dignity but believe we are powerless to effect change,

even though love demands action.

And whenever we do not treat our neighbors as we ourselves would hope to be treated,

we do not love you fully.

Forgive us, Lord.

Transform our hearts, restore our souls,

and renew our minds, so that we might be faithful

to your commandments.


Assurance of Grace

Even when we do not love the Lord with our whole being,

God loves us completely and redeems us—heart, soul, and mind.

Friends, believe the good news of the Gospel:

In Jesus Christ we are forgiven!

Prayer of Illumination


First Scripture Reading

Psalm 1 (NRSV)

Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; but their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.


This is the Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Second Scripture Reading

Matthew 22:34-46 (NRSV)

When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question: “What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit[ calls him Lord, saying, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet”’? If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?” No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

Prayers of the People


Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors;

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

Amen.
