Lillington Presbyterian Church – eWorship Service – April 5, 2020


Psalm 8

O Lord, our Sovereign,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens.
    Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,
    to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
    mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Sovereign,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

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.

Awake to the day of triumph for our Savior!
Give thanks for this day that leads to the cross!
Come with your branches, hosanna, and songs!
Fill the air with welcome to the Lord!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.

Suffering God, the way of the cross is a hard road.
You ask us to stay by your side
as you walk toward Calvary.
But weariness and fear overtake us.
Forgive us, God and strengthen us for the journey ahead.
Give us courage to face the pain and suffering

of this world and to respond with compassion.

                                                            (silent prayer)
Your God has come to you,
humble, in the form of a slave,
to free  you from the weight of sin and death.
Jesus’ obedient suffering has released you.
Your sins are forgiven. 
Thanks be to God!

Hymn 196 All Glory, Laud, and Honor 


All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King, to whom the lip of children made sweet hosannas ring!
Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son, who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed One.
All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King, to whom the lip of children made sweet hosannas ring!
The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went; our praise and prayers and anthems before thee we present. 
All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King, to whom the lip of children made sweet hosannas ring!




Gospel Reading:  Matthew 21:12-17

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.

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.
