Congregational Prayer
This week in our prayers we especially remember:

  • The many people feeling the adverse effects of prolonged heat and drought in many parts of the world. Southern Madagascar is facing its worst drought in four decades, and lives are at stake, with 14 thousand people facing famine. Let’s also pray for rain here, to nourish crops and gardens, and to replenish our water supply.
  • Justin Majeau and family as Justin settles into his role as our Lead Pastor.
  • To thank God for God’s daily presence in our lives, through good times and bad.
  • To pray that all of us, young and old, may always seek to “[walk] in the truth.” (3 John 4)

Prayer Song

Listen or sing along to VT 722 Help Us to Help Each Other, accompanied by Loretta T. You may use the hymn book or follow along with the lyrics below.

Help us to help each other, Lord,
each other’s load to bear,
that all may live in true accord,
our joys and pains to share.

Help us to build each other up,
your strength within us prove.
Increase our faith, confirm our hope,
and fill us with your love.

Together make us free indeed
your life within us show,
and into you, our living Head,
let us in all things grow.

Drawn by the magnet of your love
we find our hearts made new.
Nearer each other let us move,
and nearer still to you.

We Listen to God’s Word

Children’s Feature

Click on the link below for the children’s feature, and scroll down to number 23. It is song called “We Choose to Love.” Pastor Kristy thought this was an important song to hear as we welcome our new pastor, Justin and his family, and as Pastor Lawrence talks about the things that we do and say as we journey along the way…choosing to love is the way to go! And then feel free to click around on other songs from Camps with Meaning….they’ve all got some lovely and love-ing things to share with us!

Sending Song

Let’s go from our worship together with this song on our lips and in our hearts: VT 815 Sizohamba Naye (We Will Walk With God), accompanied by Jude, Milo, Erin, and Joel K. You can use the song book or follow the lyrics below.

We will walk with God, my brothers,
we will walk with God.
We will walk with God, my sisters,
we will walk with God.
We will go rejoicing till the kingdom has come.
We will go rejoicing till the kingdom has come.

Sizohamba naye, wo wo wo, sizohamba naye.
Sizohamba naye, wo wo wo, sizohamba naye.
Ngomhla wenja bula sizohamba naye.
Ngomhla wenja bula sizohamba naye.
