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 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.

Call to Worship

The heavens are telling the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the Creator’s handiwork.

They have no speech, they use no words,

yet their witness goes out through all the earth.

Let us join the chorus of creation; let us raise our voices in resounding praise.

May the words of our mouths and the songs of our hearts be pleasing to the Lord!


Prayer of Praise


Call to Confession

The psalmist reminds us: “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.”

Yet, in our sinfulness, we disregard God’s commandments,

to the detriment of our relationships and our own wellbeing.

Offering honest confession, let us return to the Lord,

whose ordinances are more desirable than gold and sweeter than honey.


Prayer of Confession

God of the Covenant, long ago you gave us the law to guide us in the ways of righteousness.

When we wandered, you called prophets to beckon us toward faithfulness.

In the fullness of time, you sent your Son to heal our brokenness and draw us close to you.

But, time and again, we reject your gift of grace.

We bow before the false gods of our world and forget your command to serve the least of these.

We fill our days with self-serving agendas or trivial tasks and neglect to nurture our relationship with you.

Forgive us, Lord. Come to us again, we pray, and set us on right paths.

Root out habits that separate us from you and sow within us seeds of mercy and love

so that we might produce the fruits of your kingdom.


Assurance of Grace

Children of the covenant, in these waters Christ has made us his own—

one with him in death, one with him in resurrection.

Believe the good news: We have been raised to new life

and made righteous by God’s gift of grace.

Thanks be to God.

First Scripture Reading


Exodus 20:1-4, 7-9, 12-20 (NRSV)

Then God spoke all these words: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 

You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not acquit anyone who misuses his name. Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work.

Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. When all the people witnessed the thunder and lightning, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking, they were afraid and trembled and stood at a distance, and said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, or we will die.” Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid; for God has come only to test you and to put the fear of him upon you so that you do not sin.”



This is the word of the Lord.

  Thanks be to God.

Second Scripture Reading

Matthew 21:33–46 (NRSV)

“Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a watchtower. Then he leased it to tenants and went to another country. When the harvest time had come, he sent his slaves to the tenants to collect his produce. But the tenants seized his slaves and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. Again he sent other slaves, more than the first; and they treated them in the same way. Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him and get his inheritance.’ So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the harvest time.” Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures:

‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is amazing in our eyes’?

Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that produces the fruits of the kingdom. The one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and it will crush anyone on whom it falls.” When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they realized that he was speaking about them. They wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowds, because they regarded him as a prophet.

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.

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

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

Amen.
