Unison Opening Prayer
Good Morning God, We gather together this morning
We open our computers, rather than sitting in pews
We hear music and words, rather than sitting near each other
We miss closeness, but feel your Spirit
Bring us together as one community as we worship You.
Opening Hymn - I Come with Joy - DOVE OF PEACE - Dr. Lee Foster
Ministry with the Children - Austin Pettigrew
Pastoral Prayer and the Lord's Prayer -
We invite you to spend a few moments in silent preparation for prayer. We encourage you to think about the many things that fill your heart and mind that you wish to lift up in prayer as we prepare to come before the Lord in prayer.
Musical Preparation for Prayer - Dr. Lee Foster

Scripture Reading - Philippians 2:1-5 - Hkadin Lee
2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
