Call to Worship

Matthew 18:20 [Jesus said] "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."

We may not be physically together this morning, but we are united in Christ.

Let us worship the Lord.

Opening Prayer

 Almighty God, everything seems different this week. Remind us all of the things that do not change. You, God, are with us. You love us. You will not abandon us. We gather in different ways this morning, but still we worship You. Our fear and anxiety might be a little higher than normal, but still we trust in You. Much is different, but much remains the same. May our worship this morning be pleasing to You and uplifting to our souls. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Offering

Offertory – The Summons


We do not have online giving approved and functioning yet, but we are working on it.

To continue the work of the church we are still dependent upon your gifts and offerings.

Even in these challenging times, please continue to be generous in all areas of life. For now, if you would like to support the ministry of WHPC, you could mail a check to the church office. Unless otherwise specified, such gifts will be counted the same as a gift in the offering plate.

prayers of the community and lord's prayer

(adapted slightly from Book of Common Worship: Daily Prayer, Morning Prayer, Prayers of Thanksgiving and Intercession, for Sunday)


Mighty God of mercy,

we thank you for the resurrection dawn bringing the glory of our risen Lord who makes every day new. Especially we thank you for

     the beauty of your creation ...

     the new creation in Christ and all gifts of healing and forgiveness ...

     the sustaining love of family and friends ...

     the fellowship of faith in your church. ...

Merciful God of might, renew this weary world, heal the hurts of all your children, and bring about your peace for all in Christ Jesus, the living Lord. Especially we pray for

     those who govern nations of the world ...

     the people in countries ravaged by strife or warfare ...

     all who work for peace and international harmony ...

     all who strive to save the earth from destruction ...

     the church of Jesus Christ in every land. ...

Eternal God, our beginning and our end, be our starting point and our haven, and accompany us in this day’s journey. Use our hands to do the work of your creation, and use our lives to bring others the new life you give this world in Jesus Christ, Redeemer of all, who taught us to pray saying:


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.
