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

To you, O Lord, we lift our souls;

to you we offer our lives.

For you are good and forgiving, and abounding in steadfast love.

In heaven, on earth, there is none like you. Your works are beyond compare.

For you are great; you work wonders. You alone are God.


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

“Do not fear,” you tell us.

But we cower before threats to our comfort and security,

not trusting your promise to care for us nor boldly stepping forward in faith.

“Take up the cross,” you tell us.

But we live as though death still holds dominion,

and refuse to take risks for the sake of the gospel;

we fail to challenge powers that diminish and principalities that destroy.

Forgive us, Lord. Help us to live with you and for you.

Make us worthy to bear the name of Christ.

(hear now our silent prayer of confession)


Assurance of Grace

Friends, believe the good news of the gospel:

in Jesus Christ we are forgiven and freed!

Thanks be to God!

First Scripture Reading

Jeremiah 20:7-13 (NRSV)

O LORD, you have enticed me, and I was enticed; you have overpowered me, and you have prevailed. I have become a laughingstock all day long; everyone mocks me. For whenever I speak, I must cry out, I must shout, “Violence and destruction!” For the word of the LORD has become for me a reproach and derision all day long. If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” then within me there is something like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot. For I hear many whispering: “Terror is all around! Denounce him! Let us denounce him!” All my close friends are watching for me to stumble. “Perhaps he can be enticed, and we can prevail against him, and take our revenge on him.” But the LORD is with me like a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble, and they will not prevail. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten. O LORD of hosts, you test the righteous, you see the heart and the mind; let me see your retribution upon them, for to you I have committed my cause. Sing to the LORD; praise the LORD! For he has delivered the life of the needy from the hands of evildoers.


This is the word of the Lord

Thanks be to God

Second Scripture

Matthew 10:24-39 (NRSV)

“A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above the master; it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher, and the slave like the master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household! “So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. “Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven. “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one’s foes will be members of one’s own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.

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.
