O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on hearth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve  you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

ONLINE WORSHIP Continues ON SUNDAYS AT 9:00 A.M.

    

Partnership Worship 

Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. Originally, the partnership planned to offer this service only until congregations could once again gather in their buildings. But a community has formed, and there is interest in continuing to gather online.

 

A half-hour worship service will is offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format will be a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.
