I would like to provide an update on the status of opening our church for in-sanctuary services. We understand our Palm Springs leaders are beginning to allow houses of worship to open for worship, but with extremely strict restrictions and requirements. Our Session is staying informed and current on these rules, as they begin to be developed. At this time, there are no plans for opening our church for worship. However, we will continue to keep you informed as our Session evaluates the situation to ensure the maximum safety for everyone. And, of course we will continue to provide our online services for you each Sunday.
The office is preparing to mail you the June Devotional pamphlets. If you would like to receive them, please respond to Peggy's email to you confirming you would like to receive them. If you have not received her email, please call her at the office and let her know you would like to receive them. She will mail the June devotionals immediately to all those that confirm to her they would like to receive them. If you wish not to receive them, there is no need to respond.
Our events this week will be the same as our previous weeks: (be very brief in announcing the events as they have been held for every weeks for quite some time).

|Prelude||This Is My Father's World||Alex Danson|
|* Call to Worship (Responsive)||Elder Jackie Morgan|
ONE: Mighty Wind, who danced over the deep and surveyed the shapeless void,
ALL: dance over us now and ready us for your creative purpose.
ONE: Divine Word, who commanded unruly chaos and called forth light and life,
ALL: call to us now and open us to new expressions of grace.
ONE: Eternal Artist, who formed us in your likeness and claimed us as kin,
ALL: Re-form and refine us to be bearers of your blessing.
ONE: Holy Trinity-- Creator, Christ, Spirit
|Thanksgiving for Baptism (responsive)||Rev. Bruce Myers|
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.
O Lord our God, we give you thanks
for the grace that is at work in us
through the gift of our baptism
|* Opening Hymn||Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!||Hymn #1|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive)||Elder Jackie Morgan|
ONE: Though God fashioned us in the divine image and declared us very good, sin shadows the sacred in each of us.
Still, the Spirit moves over us, among and within us,
beckoning us to new life.
Let us confess the ways we have denied our God-given identities,and return to the One who created and called us good.
ALL: Lord Jesus,
you send us to make disciples of all nations,
but we focus our energies inward
and shy away from sharing the good news
in word and deed.
You charge us to teach your commandments,
but we struggle to obey them and neglect to model them for others.
You assure us of your abiding presence,
but we doubt this promise and disregard your Spirit, denying the power you give us to do your work. Forgive us, Lord, and renew us to be the church you created us to be. Wash us with your grace and commission us for service in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
|(A moment for silenet reflection)|
|Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive)||Elder Jackie Morgan|
ONE: Children of God,
in the waters of baptism,
God the Parent claims us as beloved, God the Son calls us as disciples,
God the Spirit commissions us for service. In the waters of baptism, the Triune God raises us to new life. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
ALL: In the name of Jesus Christ we are forgiven! Thanks be to God.
|Change My Heart, O God||Hymn #695|
|* Praise Hymn||Let All Things Now Living (11/22/15)||Hymn #37|
|Prayers of the People & Lord's Prayer||Rev. Bruce Myers|
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.
|Prayer for Illumination||Elder Jackie Morgan|
Holy, Holy, Holy One,
guide us by the Spirit of truth
to hear the Word of life you speak,
and to give all glory, honor, and praise
to your threefold name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

|Affirmation of Faith||Rev. Bruce Myers|
Jesus Christ is God with humankind.
He is the eternal Son of the Father,
who became human and lived among us to fulfill the work of reconciliation.
He is present in the church
by the power of the Holy Spirit
to continue and complete his mission. This work of God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
is the foundation of all confessional statements about God, humanity, and the world. Therefore, the church calls all people to be reconciled to God and to one another.

ALL: We lift them to the Lord.
PASTOR: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
ALL: It is right to give our thanks and praise.
ALL: Holy, holy, holy Lord God of power and might, Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is the one who comes in your name.
Hosanna in the highest.
Dying you destroyed our death, rising you restored our life. Lord Jesus, come in glory.
