Lillington Presbyterian Church – eWorship Service – May 3, 2020

 
 
 

Welcome Message

Welcome to (e) Worship with the community of Lillington Presbyterian Church.
With our joys and hopes; dreams and prayers;
Griefs and doubts; memories and heartaches –
God meets us in our homes today.
With open hearts and authenticity,
Let us trust that even though we are physically separated
God is at work –
Bringing us closer to God, each other and our community.
 
 

 

Prayer of Confession

Holy One, we confess to you and to one another
that we have not always followed Christ’s example.
When we have been abused,
we have been abusive in return.
We have gone astray.
Lead us back into your fold
and guard our souls in Jesus’ name. (silent prayer)
Amen.
 

Assurance of Pardon

Friends, the promise of our faith is that
if we entrust ourselves to the One who judges justly,
we need not feel threatened,
for we will be returned to righteousness.
Having been brought back into the safety of God’s fold,
let us share the peace of Christ with the world.

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.

Benediction

As we continue to love each other by social distancing
 
Let us go from this space and may:
The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord be kind and gracious to you.
The Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.

Amen.
