- 40 Days of Prayer November 1, 2020 Dear Church Family, You are invited to join our Pastor and Administrative Council in a 40 day Intercessory Prayer Journey themed “Heal Our Land” ! We will call upon the Lord each day beginning Sunday, November1 thru Thursday, December 10 twice a day at 7:57 am and 7:57 pm. The Year 2020 has been a challenge of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Civil and Social Unrest, Racial Injustice, Economic Turmoil, Political Polarization, Climate Change and Natural Disasters as well as a multitude of Mental, Emotional Physical and Spiritual Health imbalances upon our Human Race! The Good News is Our God is an Awesome God ! We will meditate on 2 Chronicles 7:13-16 which says, 13“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there. Please share the invitation of intercessory prayer with family and friends. You are encouraged to call, text, email and share on your social media the Call for Healing ! Please pray for our families, friends, church family, neighbors, co-workers, and our Community, Local/State/National and International Leaders! We are Global Brothers and Sisters! Let the People of the Lord make 2020 the Year of Intercessory Prayer! Blessings Abound for a Fruitful Journey and Grateful Harvest during our Journey Together! Yours in Christ, Tina Lea Administrative Council, Chair __________________________________________________________________________________________ Office: (757) 420-6276St Paul's United Methodist ChurchSt. Paul's United Methodist Churchwww.stpaulsumchurch-va.com
- We look forward to being together in worship on the grounds of St Paul’s. Order of Worship Drive-In Service ALL SAINTS SUNDAY November 1, 2020 10 am Prelude “Let us Break Bread Together” Natalie Robertson Welcome and Announcements Prayer Sue Kowalski Children’s Message Cheryl Stockton Song “For All the Saints” Craig & Natalie Robertson Pastoral Prayer Scripture Reading Acts 17:1-9 Tina Lea Reading the Role of the Saints. Pastor Tom Meditation “Turning the World Upside Upside Down” Pastor Tom Service of Word and Table II Invitation- Christ the Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. Therefore, let us confess our sin before God and one another. Merciful God, we confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church. We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Hear the good news: Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; that proves God’s love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! Glory to God. Amen. The Great Thanksgiving The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise. It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven we praise your name and join their unending hymn: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest. Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ. By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection you gave birth to your church, delivered us from slavery to sin and death, and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit. On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread, gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” When the supper was over, he took the cup, gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for us, As we proclaim the mystery of faith. Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again. Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood. By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory and we feast at his heavenly banquet. Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and forever. Amen. And now, with the confidence of children of God, let us pray: 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, FOR EVER AMEN HOLY COMMUNION Song of Celebration “When the Saints Come Marching In” Natalie & Craig Robertson Benediction Sue Kowalski Postlude “Blest Be The Tie That Binds” Natalie Robertson
