Welcome to Worship
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"This is the day the Lord has made", and … say it with me, "I will rejoice and be glad in it!"
Welcome to ten@10, a Sunday morning spiritual connection with First Presbyterian of Lynn Haven!
GOD LOVES YOU … period!
We are so glad to be a part of your life, especially while we need to remain physically apart to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus impacting the world and our lives together. Know that we are never disconnected when we are united with one another in prayer and in the worship of God.
Please stay connected to reliable resources regarding Covid-19. We will be keeping you updated on any changes you need to be aware of and pray for you and your loved ones during this trying time.
Our goal today is to provide a time (we're aiming for 10 minutes@10am) of authentic worship through song, scripture, and message to lift your spirit and encourage you in the week ahead.
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them."
Matthew 18:20 (NRSV)
We may not be gathered physically, but we are God's well-loved children gathered in spirit.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Lisa (and Brad)
Let us prepare our hearts for worship.
1 I sing the mighty power of God
that made the mountains rise,
that spread the flowing seas abroad
and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day.
The moon shines full at God's command,
and all the stars obey.
2 I sing the goodness of the Lord
who filled the earth with food.
God formed the creatures through the Word,
and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed,
where'er I turn my eye,
if I survey the ground I tread,
or gaze upon the sky!
3 There's not a plant or flower below
but makes thy glories known.
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
by order from thy throne,
while all that borrows life from thee
is ever in thy care,
and everywhere that we can be,
thou, God, art present there.

Psalm 23 (KJV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
1 The King of love my shepherd is,
whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am his
and he is mine forever.
2 Where streams of living water flow
my ransomed soul he leadeth,
and where the verdant pastures grow,
with food celestial feedeth.
3 Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
but yet in love he sought me,
and on his shoulder gently laid,
and home, rejoicing, brought me.
4 In death's dark vale I fear no ill
with thee, dear Lord, beside me;
thy rod and staff my comfort still,
thy cross before to guide me.
5 Thou spread’st a table in my sight;
thy unction grace bestoweth;
and O what transport of delight
from thy pure chalice floweth!
6 And so through all the length of days
thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise
within thy house forever.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, 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. Amen.
MUSIC: RESIGNATION, Walker's Southern Harmony, 1835
