Virtual Worship - 6/7/20

Proper Posture- Micah 6:6-8

Welcome to virtual worship for Second Presbyterian Church.

You are invited to gather everyone in your household (pets counts too!) to sit around your computer, tablet, phone, or TV and worship God together. If at all possible for you to do this around 10:00 on Sunday morning, that would be wonderful so we can know that we are worshiping together even though we can’t be together physically. You can follow along with the script – when a video is present, just click on it to listen or even sing along. I have found two song choices for each “hymn” a more traditional organ led music is the first (or on the left) and a more contemporary version or song is the second (or on the right). Choose what is best for you or even listen to both if you prefer.

Let us come together (in spirit) and worship God!

CALL TO WORSHIP

One: God our Creator, we call You Father, Mother, Author of Life:

All: Draw us closer to You, O God.

One: Christ our Savior, we call You the Son, the Messiah, the One who Saves:

All: Draw us closer to You, O God.

One: Holy Spirit, we call You the Advocate, the Inspirer, Breath and Wind of God:

All: Draw us closer to You, O God.

One: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty; Heaven and earth are full of Your glory:

All: Draw us closer to You, O God.

One: Draw us in, Spirit, Christ and Creator, that we might journey with You more fully and deeply, in this life and beyond.

All: Amen.

HYMN – Holy, Holy, Holy or Revelation Song

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One: Let us go to our loving God and confess our sins, trusting in the love and mercy of Christ.

All: Triune God, we praise you as the God of love and life. Though Jesus prayed that we would be one,
we confess that we fail to live in unity with each other and with you. We break our communion through hostile words and unkind actions.
We long for your Spirit to heal us and to correct us. We long for you to help us experience communion
with you and with each other as we gather around your Word. Even now, dependent on your grace, we commit ourselves to live more fully in the unity you desire. Through Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One: You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When you cry, “Abba! Father!” it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.
In Christ, by the power of the Spirit, we are forgiven.

All: Thanks be to the Triune God! Amen.

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION 

All: Lord God,
you have declared that your kingdom is among us.
Open our eyes to see it,
our ears to hear it,
our hearts to hold it,
our hands to serve it.
This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

HYMN – Go To The World! or We are Marching in the Light of God
