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.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,

on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen
