Worship in Song
Worship in Prayer
Let’s join together as the church to declare our gratitude and lift our requests to God as we surrender together to His will for us. We are reminded that our prayers don't need to be limited to our gatherings on Sundays, we can pray together daily as the church! As you pray through these 6 areas, use this prayer guide to help your daily prayer focus all week long.
Give thanks and pray:
- for your family.
- for your church family, friends, and neighbours.
- for our pastors, staff and church leaders.
- for healthcare and front line workers.
- for our city and government.
- for our EMCC denomination and our Mission Partners.
Worship Through Giving
Giving back to God is a regular expression of worship, gratitude and praise. See our giving options.
Offering Prayer: God thank you for everything that you have provided to us. We give back to you as an expression of worship, gratitude, and praise for who you are. You are a good good father. Thank you that through this challenging time, we are assured that we do not need to worry, but trust that you will provide for our needs. Help us to be generous with what you have given, and lead us into opportunities to bless and serve others with the resources you have given to us. In Jesus’ name. Amen
Worship In The Word
Message - Pastor Sam Devine – The Crown of Beauty
The lyrics for this song can be found in the comment section on YouTube.
What choices are you making to grow deep into the soil of God?
What jewel in your crown of beauty do you need to see the most?
We are looking forward to celebrating Good Friday together this coming week. You are invited to prepare for communion in a new way. We encourage you to pick up bread/crackers and juice this week, or to use what you have at home that can be an appropriate symbol for you of the broken body and the shed blood of Jesus.
As part of the Good Friday order of service, we will be providing a written guide for reflection and participation in communion. Feel free to participate in your unique setting. Share communion as a family, as a couple, maybe as a Life Group over a zoom connection, or even share communion over the phone with a friend/family member at a distance. There are many ways to participate together, even if we are on our own.
