July 5 Technical Issues:

We apologize for technical difficulties that interrupted our live stream just as the service was beginning today. We offer this recording of the beginning of the service, with Erik, Mary Elen and Susan's moving prelude on the trumpet, trombone and organ, then the beginning of the Liturgy for All Saints. The rest of the service, which did live-stream, is in the lower video. Very sorry for the inconvenience. Issues with our streaming system are in the process of being resolved, to give us an excellent new streaming product. Thank you for your patience.

Sunday Worship begins at 10 a.m. Streaming begins 15 minutes prior to the service. You can scroll through the Order of Service below the player window. Download a printout version of today's full bulletin with today's liturgy, hymns, communion service and learning opportunities after worship.

While you're waiting or after the service, please consider filling out our online Friendship Register below.

Scripture lessons:

Zechariah 9: 9-12

Psalm 145: 8-14

The Lord is gracious and merciful,

   slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

The Lord is good to all,

   having compassion over all that the Lord has  


All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,

   and all your faithful shall bless you.

They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom,

   and tell of your power,

to make known to all people your mighty deeds,

   and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

   and your dominion endures throughout all  


The Lord is faithful in all words,

   and gracious in all deeds.

The Lord upholds all who are falling,

   and raises up all who are bowed down.


Romans 7: 15-25a
