March 22, 2020 Worship
Welcome to Parkview UMC's online church. Each week there will be a worship service that you can interact with. This will include music, prayer, scripture readings, and sermons which you can scroll down through. Since many of us were not able to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, our music this week has distinctly Celtic sound.
Opening Prayer (either pray out loud or silently)
Gracious God, who created us in God’s own image, we are grateful for all that you have done for us, for all that you are doing in us, and for all that you will do through us. Open our eyes to see your presence among us, moving in powerful ways at all times and in all places. Open our ears to hear familiar words in new ways— ways that will change us and challenge us to become the people you created us to be. Grant us the power and the courage to come out of the darkness and into the light of Jesus Christ, that we may serve you by serving others. We love you with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Amen.
