Sunday 3-29-20

Welcome to week two of Digital Services! Some information if you're new because of the gathering restrictions to assist in tempering the spread of COVID-19, we have developed a service "template" that we would invite you to use in your family worship each Sunday morning.

The idea behind it is to: (1) provide you a helpful means to guide your family worship time, yet (2) in a way that allows each family unit to be led in the way you believe to be best in the specifics.

We hope this is an encouragement to you, and we look forward to the time when we can one day worship God together with you back in our physical location.

Call to Worship

Here is a Call to Worship to begin the service. Watch the short video below. Feel free to join in singing, or use this as a time of silent reflection to begin the service.


Opening Prayer​

Choose a member of your home gathering to read the following prayer out loud:

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

- Matthew 6:9–13

Play the following song.

You can sing along or simply use it as a time of reflection.


Scripture Reading - Matthew 6:19-34

Choose a member of your home gathering to read the following Psalm aloud.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Do Not Be Anxious

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (ESV)

Play the following song.

You can sing along or simply use it as a time of reflection.


Pastoral Challenge

Corporate Prayer

Here are 3 things to consider and pray over from today's challenge and our current state of events. You can assign each of these to a different person, or have someone pray for all of them.

  1. Our God has promised to bring good from bad (Romans 8:28). Pray for any concern or hope you have, particularly that God would use it for His glory and our good.

  2. Pray for our city, state, and national leaders as they make difficult decisions in this current crisis.

  3. Pray the Church around the world, that they (and we) would use this global crisis to spread the Gospel of Jesus.

Closing Song

You can sing along or simply use it as a time of reflection.



“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." - Matthew 5:14
