Good morning!  This page is intended to both serve as a continuing worship option for those participating in our worship service from home, and to serve in place of print resources during our in-person worship.  Following the worship service on Sunday, one or more video recordings from the service will be placed on this page, including the sermon.  This may take several hours, due to the time needed to process the videos.  We will email the congregation when the recordings have been posted.  If you would like to be added to our congregational email list, please contact

    Gathering Prayer

    Welcome & Announcements

    Call to Worship – based on Psalm 9 

    We gather together as people on a long journey of faith.

    We come together to worship and learn.

    We give thanks to the Lord with all our hearts.

    We recount all of God’s wondrous deeds

    We will be glad and rejoice in Him.

    We sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

    The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

    Those who know your name trust in you, Lord, for you have never forsaken those who seek you.

    Children’s Time

    Scripture                                              Job 38:1-18

    Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:

    “Who is this that obscures my plans
        with words without knowledge?
    Brace yourself like a man;
        I will question you,
        and you shall answer me.

    “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
        Tell me, if you understand.
    Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
        Who stretched a measuring line across it?
    On what were its footings set,
        or who laid its cornerstone—
    while the morning stars sang together
        and all the angels shouted for joy?

    “Who shut up the sea behind doors
        when it burst forth from the womb,
    when I made the clouds its garment
        and wrapped it in thick darkness,
    10 when I fixed limits for it
        and set its doors and bars in place,
    11 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
        here is where your proud waves halt’?

    12 “Have you ever given orders to the morning,
        or shown the dawn its place,
    13 that it might take the earth by the edges
        and shake the wicked out of it?
    14 The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
        its features stand out like those of a garment.
    15 The wicked are denied their light,
        and their upraised arm is broken.

    16 “Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea
        or walked in the recesses of the deep?
    17 Have the gates of death been shown to you?
        Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
    18 Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?
        Tell me, if you know all this.
