WELCOME TO ONLINE WORSHIP AT FIRST CHURCH!
Welcome to all who gather to worship online today! We hope you feel the warmth of God’s presence and welcome right where you’re at. If this if your first time joining us online, we are honored by your presence and hope to see you again soon! To stay informed, please subscribe to our weekly email.
First, we’re not just friendly, we’re friends! Our primary belief is that everyone (no exceptions!) is created in the loving image of God, who is love itself.
Second, in everything we do, we strive to live our mission: By the power of Christ, we are blessed to be a blessing!

CALL TO WORSHIP
We will sing of God's steadfast love forever!
We will proclaim God's faithfulness to all generations!
Happy are those who walk in the light of God's countenance!
God is the glory of our strength; our protection is
from God alone!
HYMN OF PRAISE
“Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine”
You have welcomed us into the family of faith, loving God. Now, help us to welcome others! By the power of your Spirit, prepare our hearts and minds to be a blessing, so that we may be sent out into your mission field. Grant us faith, joy, compassion, and hope, all in the name of Jesus Christ, whose praises we sing! Amen!
WE EXPERIENCE GOD’S WORD
SCRIPTURE READING - THE GOSPEL LESSON
40 "Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; 42 and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple - truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward."
“Make Me a Channel of Your Peace”
(MUSIC: S. Temple; arr. by Mark Hayes)
“We Are the Answer to Our Prayer!”
Rev. Lisa Martin, Pastor, FPC
WE RESPOND TO GOD’S WORD
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE & 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.
WE DEPART TO SERVE
“Jesu, Jesu, Fill Us with Your Love”
