As we continue through this time of not gathering physically together, 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 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

By Katya Ouchakof


God of grief and pain,

You weep with us when we sorrow.

God of love and joy,

You rejoice with us when we celebrate.

God of all seasons,

You are with us in the transitions of life.

God of resurrection,

You promise to always bring us to new life.

We come to you today in grief and in hope.

Be with us as we worship, in your holy name. Amen.


Prayer of Praise


Call to Confession

Trusting that God washes us with grace and pours love into our hearts,

let us confess the ways we continue to sin and fall short of the glory of God.


Prayer of Confession

By Terie Peterson


How often, O God, have you appeared, calling us, and we have said “I didn’t expect you today”?

We are shocked, surprised, caught off guard.

But at the same time we proclaim you everywhere present.

We ask for a sign, something obvious, to show us the way.

When we get it, though, it wasn’t what we expected.

YOU weren’t what we expected.

We confess that we were hoping for something that fit our lifestyle, 

our preconceptions, our plans, a bit better.

We admit that maybe we didn’t want the sign, didn’t want the calling…didn’t want you…today.

Forgive us, God. Forgive our timid hearts.

Forgive our unwillingness to have seen what was right in front of us the whole time.

Forgive our faltering following and our wishful thinking.

Give us the courage to stand up, welcome you even when you ask hard things of us, 

and follow your call. 

Amen.

(hear now our silent prayer of confession)


Assurance of Grace

Beloved people of God, believe the good news; 

through the grace of Jesus Christ we are forgiven.

Thanks be to God.

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come into his presence with singing. know that the LORD is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name. For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Second Scripture Reading

Matthew 9:35-10:8 (NRSV)

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” 

Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon, also known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him. 

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You received without payment; give without payment.

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.
