To Our Church Family and Friends

In light of the Covid-19 crisis, a Session meeting was called. After much prayer and consideration, the Session decided to comply wholeheartedly with the CDC recommendations,in order to do our part in combating the spread of the virus.  We are convinced that this is what we must do in order to love our neighbors as ourselves.  It was decided to cancel all of our Bible Studies, Youth Groups, Choir and Sunday School.  

 

We will not be conducting worship services in the church building.  At the present time, we are developing a worship service that can be conducted at home.  There will be online resources for this service and an order of worship available to you.  These materials should be ready for you by Saturday and posted on our website, www.pioneerpca.org  and on the church Facebook page.  

 

We recognize this is not an ideal circumstance for worship for the church as a whole.  In the current circumstance, it is what we can do.  We will make adjustments to this service as we learn.  

 

Please be in prayer for one another and patient with us as we find our way through this crisis.  Please keep the leaders of the church in your prayers and the leaders of our nation, as well.  

 

As always, please reach out to an Elder with any questions.  

 

Thank you.  

 

In Christ,

Rev.  Dave Kenyon

Verse:

Our help is in the name of the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8 NKJV)

Prayer:

Gracious Heavenly Father, we praise you for your goodness, mercy and love for us. We thank you for the gift of your Son, who died for our sins, arose on the third day and now sits at your right hand. Help us to worship you acceptably. Forgive us our sins and renew us in repentance for the sake of your son, our Savior and Lord, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

Verse:

For as the heavens are high above the earth,

So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;

As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:11-12 NKJV)

Hymn: Great Is Thy Faithfulness 32

1 Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; there is no shadow of turning with thee; thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.

Refrain: Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see: all I have needed thy hand hath provided - Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

2 Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, sun, moon, and stars in their courses above, join with all nature in manifold witness to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love. [Refrain]

3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! [Refrain]

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 22:34-40

34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together.

35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,

36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Prayer and Lord’s Prayer:

Almighty and Gracious Heavenly Father, our help is found in you. In your mercy strengthen our faith that in this time of difficulty we may trust in your promises and experience your peace in our hearts. Watch over and protect our congregation scattered about in our various families. Hear our unified voice of praise and petition even though we are distant from each other.

In this time of crisis, give wisdom to our governing officials that they make effective decisions for the good of our American people. Send your Spirit upon our nation to turn us toward you, the only true God, through your Son, Jesus our Lord and Savior. Let the gospel of your Son be heard throughout our land.

Keep and preserve your people everywhere in the world. Protect our brothers and sisters in Christ from antagonistic governments, and from the effects of this pandemic. You are the sovereign ruler of all nations, and your judgments are just. So be merciful to us, forgive us our sins, and bring this plague to a swift end. Grant us faith to trust you and know that you work all things for our good who love you and are called according to your purpose.

Hear us as we pray as Jesus taught us to pray:

“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

Hymn: My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less 521 (v. 1-3)

1 My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.

Refrain: On Christ, the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.

2 When darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace; in ev'ry high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

3 His oath, his covenant, his blood support me in the whelming flood; when all around my soul gives way, he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]
