As we continue through this time of not gathering physically together, we're providing this worship service for you and your family to use. After the Sunday morning Zoom gathering, 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

God we have gathered to call on you, be gracious and hear our prayer.

   We bring honor to you our Lord and our God.

God we call you faithful because you hear us when we call on you.

   We offer this service to you our Lord and our God.

God, we yield to you in moments of high praise and humble pressing.

   We offer right sacrifices and put our trust in you our Lord and our God.

By your mighty hand, we are gathered to worship and praise you our Lord and our God.


Prayer of Praise


Call to Confession

God is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and full of faithful love.
Trusting in the promise of grace,
let us confess our struggles to God.


Prayer of Confession


For the times when our actions caused our siblings to sin or made transgressions acceptable. 

For the times when we have ignored the cries of our neighbors pleading for health, habitat or help. 

For the times when we remain silent when you called us to speak. 

For the times when we speak when you called us to remain silent. 

For the times when we have not loved others the way you have loved us. 

For the times when we have tried to hide our sinful ways from your all seeing gaze. 

For the times when we exude our privilege over your power. 

We confess these things and ask for the courage to name the things that we have remained hidden from the truth of our complete salvation. Recreate the longing for you I had on the day of my confirmation and give me the yearning you had for reconciliation when you agreed to join us on Earth. Purge us in your grace, cover us with your mercy and forgive us again. 

Amen.


Assurance of Grace

God’s compassion is over all of creation; God’s mercy covers us and gives us new life. In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.

Thanks be to God!

Prayer of Illumination


First Scripture Reading

Acts 3:12-16 (NRSV)

When Peter saw it, he addressed the people, “You Israelites, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we had made him walk? The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our ancestors has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and rejected in the presence of Pilate, though he had decided to release him. But you rejected the Holy and Righteous One and asked to have a murderer given to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses. And by faith in his name, his name itself has made this man strong, whom you see and know; and the faith that is through Jesus has given him this perfect health in the presence of all of you.


This is the Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Second Scripture Reading

Luke 24:36-42 (NRSV)

While they were talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself. Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish,

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.
