Order of Worship for Sunday, October 25, 2020 (Online)
Welcome and God’s Greeting
Call to Worship: Philippians 2:1-4
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Opening Song of Worship: Holy, Holy, Holy
Prayers of the People
Celebration of Communion
Song: Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
Scripture Reading and Message: Luke 10:25-37 “The Parable of the Good Samaritan”
Song: Compassion Hymn
Testimony of Faith: Our World Belongs to God #41
Joining the mission of God, the church is sent with the gospel of the kingdom to call everyone to know and follow Christ and to proclaim to all the assurance that in the name of Jesus there is forgiveness of sin and new life for all who repent and believe. The Spirit calls all members to embrace God’s mission in their neighbourhoods and in the world: to feed the hungry, bring water to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and free the prisoner. We repent of leaving this work to a few, for this mission is central to our being.
God’s Parting Blessing
Closing songs: The Gift of Love; Here I Am Lord; Here is Love, Vast as the Ocean
