20th February 2022 - Trust in God in the good times



Welcome to our online service. This service includes some of the elements from our in person service for those who are not able to make it at 11am. We'd encourage you to begin to come back to our in person services if you can. The opportunity to meet together is good for us and helps us on our Christian journey together.


Today we are continuing in our series on Trust. How do we continue to trust in God when things are good? Claire reflects on Deuteronomy 8:1-20


Sunday Zone is back - our group for children and young people. We do not have a creche at present, but we do have space to play and toys you can bring into the service for your child if you would like. In our in person service we will be sharing in communion.


If you are coming in person, please take care of one another by wearing masks when needed and ensuring you keep others health to the forefront of your minds. We ask you not to attend in person if you are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or have tested positive.


Next week (27th February) after the service we will be having a Church meeting - members are encouraged to attend. All are welcome to stay and hear news on church life and share in prayer and life together. We will be thinking together about what it means to be a church member as we work towards renewing our Church Constitution.

Worship


Call to Worship (Psalm 100)


Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his[a]; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.


Songs for Today


Here are the songs for today. You might want to play the last two for before and after the sermon




Prayers


Spend some time thanking God for all he has given you. What are the good things in your life right now? What would you like to see more of? Take the words of the Prayer of St Boniface below as your own.


Eternal God, the refuge and help of all your children, we praise you for all you have given us, for all you have done for us, for all that you are to us. In our weakness, you are strength, in our darkness, you are light, in our sorrow, you are comfort and peace. We cannot number your blessings, we cannot declare your love: For all your blessings we bless you. May we live as in your presence, and love the things that you love, and serve you in our daily lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
