All: We pray for peace
in our hearts,
in our homes,
in our communities,
in our nations,
and in our worlds.

Children’s Moment

*Passing of the Peace – Amy
Amy: Friends, although we are physically separated as we practice social distance, in reality we are all connected. And so we come to the point in our service where we pass the peace with one another. I invite you to open your palms up like this and imagine yourself connected to everyone watching this livestream as we pass the peace to one another.

Amy: Beloved of God, may the peace of Christ be with you.
All: And also with you.

Song: Blessed Be the Tie That Binds

Community Prayer and Lord’s Prayer – Amy
Our God, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Sermon – How To Unlock Fear

*Unison Benediction – Amy

May God bless you and keep you.
May God’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
May God look upon you with kindness and bring you peace.
This day and forever more. Amen
