we’re glad you can join us for worship!
We would love for you to let us know you’re here. This worship guide is meant to be a companion to our Livestream service. You can join us live at 11am on Sunday morning, watch the recorded service later, or participate live on Wednesday evening at 8:30pm (EDT) on Facebook, following along with the words to hymns, etc. in a separate window or on your phone, or print this guide out if you like!
We encourage you to prepare your elements before we begin if you would like to participate.
HYMN: “The Church’s One Foundation”
CHILDREN’S MOMENT: Rev. Jerusha Moses
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by 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. Amen.
SCRIPTURE READING: Jeremiah 31:33, Psalm 100:3, Ephesians 2:19-22
The Eyes of Christ | Susan Palo Cherwien
Where is the servant church
amidst the bluster
Look to the tables:
Look to the dining tables
where stranger and misfit
find both food and welcome.
Look to the altar tables
where humility and justice
Look to the bread:
at the altar
in the home
in the lunch break
in the open heart.
Look to the eyes:
eyes that rejoice
eyes that weep
eyes that celebrate
eyes that see
the Christ clothed in humanity
Where is the servant church?
Look to the eyes that see,
across the table,
through broken bread,
the eyes of Christ
This summer, we will actively covenant together in multiple ways, particularly in our physical gatherings in one one another’s homes. You can find more details related to our expectations, hopes, and practices here.
Whether you’ve been coming to Tabernacle for years, or just recently started worshiping with us online, we are glad you’re here! We invite you to participate in other opportunities for fellowship and discipleship as well. We are currently in the midst of a new podcast series, led by Art Wright. It is a discussion about Revelation, and how apocalypses, in addition to anticipating the end of the world, reveal things about our current realities. Listen to this week’s conversation, and sign up for the Facebook group if you’re interested in further discussion!
