The word "liturgy" means "work of the people." Instead of providing a product for you to passively consume, we are inviting you to participate in a weekly experience. By praying and singing and reading out loud, through sitting and standing and listening, we hope to engage you in the active act of worship. We may be physically separated during this time, but by participating in the same acts of worship each week, we are connected to one another through a common experience.

Welcoming Prayer

God – we gather in your presence.
Father – we long for more of you.
Jesus – we place you at the center.
Holy Spirit – come and fill our time together.
Help us to be fully present here,
to your word, to one another,
and to the world you love.
Amen.

COMMUNION
Take me back to the garden
Lead me be back to moment I heard Your voice
Bring me back to communion
Lead me back to the moment I saw Your face
And it was all so simple
It was easy to love
No space between us
It was easy to trust

You are closer, closer than my skin
You are in the air I’m breathing in
Here’s where the dead things
Come back to living
I feel my heart beating again
Feels so good to know You are my friend

This is the garden
Here in the place I find you close
This is communion
Here in the place I’m fully known
And it was all so simple
You’re so easy to love
And no space between us
You’re so easy to trust

Cause You are closer, closer than my skin
And You are in the air I’m breathing in
And Here’s where the dead things
Come back to living
I feel my heart beating again
It feels so good to know You are my friend
My friend, my friend yes
Mhh it’s where I’m meant to be
In you yeah yeah

This is where I’m meant to be
Me and You, and You and me
I don’t have to prove a thing
You’ve already approved of me

What a friend we have in Jesus
Sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
Oh what peace we often for it
Oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer

Scripture Reading

The text of lectionary passage for you to read aloud as you remain standing.

Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: “I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”

Genesis 9:8-17 (NIV)

Benediction

As you go,
May the peace of Christ go with you,
Wherever he may send you,
May he guide you through the wilderness,
Protect you through the storms,
May he bring you home rejoicing,
At the wonders he has shown you,
May he bring you home rejoicing,
Once again into our doors.
