This week’s worship experience premieres on Sunday, February 21 at 10 am. As this new Lent series begins, join Pastor Jonathan in thinking about the covenant that God makes with God’s people. God promises to not bring harm, but also to be ever-present in the lives of those he creates. In our faith, how might it be important for us to see the presence of God even in the ordinary or unremarkable times. We’ll think in this opening message about all that inhabits the skies. Rainbows, clouds, sun, stars, and everything else. How might looking up be the great gift of a day for us? The scripture for this week is Genesis 9:8-17. This service is available here on the website, through the Herndon UMC YouTube channel, and on Herndon UMC’s Facebook page.
Worshipers are also encouraged to participate. Each week worship participants are asked to gather a candle and a symbol for worshiping from home. No matter where you are, please add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able. There is a bulletin to help you experience worship. It includes the week’s announcements, links, ongoing prayer concerns, and the order of worship.
If you received a Lent kit, get your kaleidoscope ready for worship. If you did not receive a kit, but would like one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to share one with you!
The chat on YouTube opens at 9:30 am. Say hello to the greeters as you prepare for worship. No matter what platform you prefer. Please let us know you are worshiping with us, who is there worshiping with you, and where you are. This can be done in the chat and comments, or by email to email@example.com. Anyone new or looking to get more connected or learn more about Herndon UMC is invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete this online form. We would love to hear from you!
