Pastor’s Message/Worship Resources: April 26, 2020

In this post you will find resources for you to use at home as we await the time when we will be able to gather together for worship once again. You will find a link for an audio file of Pastor Jonny’s message, as well as music, prayers and some files in PDF format should you wish to download and/or print. Remember that the internet continues to be a very busy place these days – some files may take extra time to download on your device. It is our deepest hope that these resources will be of assistance to you as you worship our Risen Lord.

He is Risen 6


He is risen!

He is risen indeed!

He hears my prayers, and answers them...


Rejoice with Music: This I Believe (The Creed)

Prayer of the Day:

Let us pray…       O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer: 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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
