Lillington Presbyterian Church – eWorship Service – April 19, 2020


Psalm 98

O sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done marvelous things.
His right hand and his holy arm
    have gotten him victory.
The Lord has made known his victory;
    he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
    to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
    the victory of our God.

Welcome to (e) Worship with the community of Lillington Presbyterian Church.
From our various spaces, on our various devices we enter sacred time.
God makes this time sacred by meeting us here.
We make this time sacred by drawing near by faith.
Let us pause, pray and listen…

Risen Lord,
You have breathed the Spirit upon us,
and sent us forth to testify to what we have heard and seen.
Yet we resist this calling,
huddling behind locked doors
rather than stepping out with confidence.
Forgive us, we pray:
Free us from fear and send us forth to proclaim:

“We have seen the Lord!”    (silent prayer)

God is our refuge and will not abandon us.
In Jesus Christ, we are reconciled to God.
That is a promise of peace and joy;
share that peace. 
Gospel Reading:  John 20:19-23

Moment of Reflection


Affirmation of Faith:      Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell.
The third day He arose from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; 
the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; 
the resurrection of the body; and life everlasting.

Prayer of Thanksgiving

God of all good gifts,
We thank you for showing us how to care for each other.
May these gifts lead to great feasting
for those who have no tables set before them.
May these gifts lead us to open our doors for all people.
May these gifts lead us to follow you even when that takes us to a cross.
May these gifts proclaim your desire for all of creation.
In Christ name we pray, Amen. 


Sisters and brothers, we have no good apart from God.
Therefore let us keep God at the forefront of our minds
and give generously from all that we have been given,
that others may also receive from the fullness of God.
