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

The Church Board meets this Sunday, September 13, at 6:30PM in the pavilion.

Pastor Daniel’s grandmother’s funeral service will be on Wednesday.  Both Pastor Daniel and Pastor Rebecca will be out of the office Wednesday morning.

Please note these highlights from the September 30 Church Board Meeting:
1. We will continue worshiping outdoors through October 11.
2. This will include our Fall Congregational Business meeting on October 11.
3. We will not be accepting reservations for use of the church building or pavilion during this time, due to sanitation concerns.

We will be remembering Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples through bread and cup communion at our outdoor service on October 4.

Please be praying for educators, students, and parents preparing for the new school year.

Please be praying for those suffering from Covid-19, and those caring for them.

Please pray for those suffering from other illnesses during this time.

On the second Sunday in September, we traditionally meet for worship in the grove of trees in front of the church. The tradition of worshiping in the grove came out of the early worship meetings of our church. Before church buildings were built, a nice shady grove of trees was an ideal spot to gather, sing, hear the word and pray. These meeting locations were always weather dependent though, so it took buildings to create the stories of our elders traveling through feet of snow to come to worship.

The buildings are special. They are sacred, though, only because of the use we put them to. Moses was standing on a hill just like any other, when God told him to remove his shoes. “This ground is holy ground.” It is holy, because our God meets us here.

How Great Is Our God

Verse 1
The splendor of the King
Clothed in majesty,
Let all the earth rejoice.
All the earth rejoice!
He wraps Himself in light
And darkness tries to hide.
And trembles at His voice.
And trembles at His voice.

How great is our God!
Sing with me.
How great is our God!
And all will see how great,
How great is our God.

Verse 2
And age to age He stands
And time is in His hands.
Beginning and the End,
Beginning and the End.
The Godhead three in one:
Father, Spirit, Son.
The Lion and the Lamb,
The Lion and the Lamb.


Verse 3
Name above all names,
Worthy of all praise.
My heart will sing
How great is our God.

How Great is our God

by PVCOB Praise Team | Streamed with permission. CSPL121366

God of all creation,
who crafts ants and alligators,
who has spoken into being
both icebergs and lava flows,
who fills the rivers with rain and fish
and makes creeks and butterflies
to splash and flutter in beauty,
We give thanks for your love today.
Because it is love that you express in creation.
Your love is the reason that we have being,
and your love is the reason we experience healing.
Your love is the root of our hope
and the source of our salvation.
So turn us toward love today.
Free us from the paralysis of fear.
Let cool waters cleanse the ash of anger and vengeance.
Release us to be made new again in you,
to lift our hearts and voices in joy,
to give thanks for our redemption,
to celebrate as part of one body
created in Christ’s love. Amen.

Breathe Upon Us, Holy Spirit

Breathe on us, Holy Spirit,
as adoringly we bow at these alters,
pure and sacred,
paying you our solemn vow.
All our feeble graces quicken
with the streams of your sweet grace,
And make glorious with your presence this your holy dwelling place.

You are pure and you are sacred;
Jesus, lead us where you are led.
You are meek and you are lowly,
so may we your people be.
Send ev’ry where your love within us,
fill our souls with light divine.
Holy spirit, seal, anoint us,
and our worldliness refine.

Here will love, like sacred incense,
upward mount to your great throne,
from the clean’sd heart and conscience
of a people all your own.
Humble are the gifts we bring you;
and on your altar lay,
yet be gracious to your people
as they worship you today.

Breathe upon us, Holy Spirit

Based on Psalm 103

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,

Do not forget all God’s blessings
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from darkness
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good as long as you live

The Lord works vindication
and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love towards those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far he removes our transgressions from us.

The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!

The blessings we share,
are blessings that God has given.

May God’s love grow and abound in us.

Holy God,
You spoke, and chaos yielded to your word.
So that all that is beautiful and good would be revealed.
You shaped the moon and the sun
so that we would have days and nights
in which to honor and praise you.When skinned knees are bandaged,
when tears are wiped away,
when hands are held,
you show us your new creation.

When you dine with the world’s outcasts,
when you wait with those we rush past
when you will not take sides
in our petty games:
you show us the new earth.

When you turn on the
‘no vacancy’ sign
as death comes our way;
when mourning becomes
a distant memory;
when pain is found
only in dusty history books:
you show us the new heaven.

You have set the bounds of the garden
in which we can have life and joy with you.
The boundary lines have fallen for us, in good places.
And yet we have run off, distrustful
seeking more by our own devices,
and gotten lost, finding only emptiness.

But you have entered our darkness
to show us light again.

So guard us on your way.
Teach our hearts humility and trust.
Help us to live lives that believe and proclaim
that your love reigns. Amen.

Adapted from prayers by Thom Shuman

Healer Of Our Every Ill

Healer of our ev’ry ill,
Light of each tomorrow,
Give us peace beyond our fear,
and hope beyond our sorrow.

Give us strength to love each other,
ev’ry sister, ev’ry brother.
Spirit of all kindness, be our guide.


You who know each thought and feeling,
teach us all your way of helping.
Spirit of compassion, fill each heart.
