As we continue through this time of physical distancing, we're providing this worship service for you and your family to use. You can go through the parts of the worship service and watch Pastor Kim's sermon below


At 10am 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 can be found here.

Call to Worship

Come to me, Jesus says. All who are weary,

come to me.

And you, who carry heavy loads,

come to me.

For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Let us draw near to Jesus, whose yoke is easy and whose burden is light.


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

Merciful God, we fill our lives with comfort and convenience,

distractions that consume our energy and time.

We chase after wealth and power as if they could satisfy the hunger in our souls.

But you beckon us toward new life, a life made rich through Sabbath and service.

Free us from the yokes that bind us and draw us near to you,

until we learn to walk with Christ.

(hear now our silent prayers of confession)


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.

First Scripture Reading


Song of Solomon 2:8-13 (NRSV)

The voice of my beloved! Look, he comes, 

leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the hills. 

My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. 

Look, there he stands behind our wall, 

gazing in at the windows, looking through the lattice. 

My beloved speaks and says to me:

“Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; 

for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. 

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, 

and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. 

The fig tree puts forth its figs,  and the vines are in blossom; 

    they give forth fragrance.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


This is the word of the Lord.

  Thanks be to God.

Second Scripture Reading

Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30 (NRSV)

“But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to one another, ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn.’ For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon’; the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.” At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

We Share the Bread and the Cup


The 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.
