PREAKNESS REFORMED CHURCH

WAYNE, NEW JERSEY

FOURTH SUNDAY OF THE GREAT FIFTY DAYS OF EASTER

WORSHIP AT HOME

May 3, 2020   10:00 A.M. 

Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church! 

“When we are living in God’s overflow, there is an abiding sense of having what you need and always having enough to share.  Appreciating what we have, rather than ruminating over what we don’t have, allows us to abide fully and freely in ever-flourishing blessing.”

Reverend Kirk Byron Jones, Soul Talk

WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS 

PSALM OF PRAISE                                            -selected verses of Psalm 121   

I lift up my eyes to the hills---from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. 

The LORD won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep.
Not on your life! The Guardian of Israel never dozes or sleeps.

God is our Guardian, right at our side to protect us—
shielding us from sunstroke, sheltering us from moonstroke.
 

God guards us from every evil, God guards our very lives.
God guards our going out and our coming in, now and always---

from this time forth and forevermore.
