The Peace of Christ be with you! You are invited to use the following prayers & order of worship as we lift our hearts to God together!

Call To Worship

Great is the Lord!

God’s greatness is beyond our understanding.

Yet God has revealed God’s self in Jesus Christ.

Through Jesus we have come to know the absolute love of God.

Lift up your hearts and praise the Lord!

May God continue to bless God’s people with peace. Amen. (nct)

Joys and Concerns & Time of Prayer

You are invited to share your joys and concerns with one another using our usual format:

Person lifting the prayer: “O God of Mercy;” everyone’s response: “This is our prayer.”

After you share your joys and concerns, go around the circle and offer prayer, praying freely or using this format:

“God, I thank you for…” and “God, I ask for…”

You are invited to close together with The Lord’s Prayer.

* If you or your kids would like to contribute to our virtual worship by music, painting, photos, recipes, or anything, please contact Nathan: worship@ujcclife.com


Postlude "Go Now In Peace" Becky Messer


Worship Resource: (nct) Nancy C. Townley, “Call To Worship #1” from “Worship Connection: May 30, 2021” https://www.ministrymatters.com/all/entry/2826/worship-connection-may-30-2021


Philippians 4:4-9

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. 6Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.


After Worship…

Take some time to reflect as a family on what you learned and experienced during worship.
