ELEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST AUGUST 16, 2020
WELCOME Guests- we are happy that you’ve joined us for worship today and we extend to you a warm and heartfelt welcome! If you haven’t received a welcoming folder, please pick one up from the table by the organ. May the Lord bless your worship with us. We also ask our guests to please sign the Guest Book located on the stand in the Narthex.
PREPARATION As you wait for the worship service to begin, instead of visiting with someone in a pew near you, you may want to prepare yourself for worship by reading a portion of Scripture and/or saying a prayer. The following prayer is one suggestion...
“God of hope, send the Holy Spirit to fill us with all joy and peace in believing, so that we may throw off the cares that disturb us and come into your presence to praise you with our whole being; through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.” Additional prayers can be located on pages 10 & 11 and 134-139 in the hymnal.
