Call to Worship 

One: We gather this morning in the midst of new dimensions,
All: On phones and tablets, on TV screens and CD players.
One: Claiming the promise that the church is not a building.
All: For God’s Spirit connects and sustains us.
One: God calls us to a place of awareness and intention, of celebration and gratitude,
All: That we might experience God’s extraordinary love in the unordinary times.
One: And until we gather in person again,
All: May the Lord bless and keep us.

Sending Prayer

We give you thanks, O God, that you meet us where we are. Amidst the difficulty of illness and distance, your connection holds our hearts and honors our relationships. May we find ways in this current reality, to be active in our efforts caring for our neighbors. May we be the living embodiment of your church, a ‘home where all belong’ that is not bound by walls or location. Amen.
