1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! Please read this Psalm as a prayer over you and your loved ones.

May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works,
who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke!
I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the LORD.

Amen 

Psalm 104:31–34

8) Communion

There is no communion video today, because we want to encourage you to do communion by yourself. Either alone where you are, or with your believing family.

Here is the text you can use to help you lead communion.

1 Corinthians 11:23–26 (ESV)
11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread,
11:24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
11:25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

9) Message

10) Blessing

2 Thessalonians 3:16 (ESV)

Amen!
