Lord’s Prayer
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, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen

Sermon

Closing Song – “The Stand”
Verse 1
You stood before creation
Eternity in Your hand
And You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

Verse 2
You stood before my failure
And carried the cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon Your shoulders
My soul now to stand

Bridge
So what could I say?
What could I do?
But offer this heart, O God
Completely to You

Verse 3
So I’ll walk upon salvation
Your Spirit alive in me
This life to declare Your promise
My soul now to stand

Bridge (x2)
So what could I say?
And what could I do?
But offer this heart, O God
Completely to You

Chorus (Repeat)
So I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the one who gave it all
So I’ll stand, my soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

A Word About Online Giving

During this time when we can’t come together physically for worship, financial giving remains really essential to help keep the ministries of Haymarket Church moving forward.  If you would normally give in person on Sunday morning (via kiosk, cash, or check), we would encourage you to go to HaymarketChurch.org/give and set up automated online giving.  Just click the big green “give” button on that page, and you’ll be redirected to our secure giving portal.  Your consistent giving helps us to continue to support the various ministries of Haymarket Church, pay our staff, and cultivate new ways to build connection and strengthen faith as we walk into uncharted waters together.  Thank you for your continued support.

You can also give by text by texting the dollar amount you want to give to the number 844-332-3112.  You’ll receive a response including a link to our secure giving portal.  You can use that portal to give via credit card to our General Fund.  So, if you want to give $100, just text 100 to 844-332-3112. For a quick-guide for text-to-give, click here for the Haymarket Church GivePlus Text Quick Guide. Again, thank you for your generosity.

If you’d prefer to give by check or cash, you can send a donation by mail to “Haymarket Church, PO Box 1024, Haymarket, VA 20168.”

And, of course, if your income is negatively impacted by upcoming shutdowns, cancellations, etc., please feel free to modify your giving patterns. Even more, please let us know so that we can help support you.

Encouragement to Be a Good Neighbor

This is a stressful/anxious/confusing time for many of us.  In times like these, Christians are called to live for the sake of others.  So, practice good hygiene and do what you can to limit the spread of disease for the sake of those who are most at risk. Stand up for justice and speak out against systems of hatred and oppression. Call your friends, family, and neighbors to check in on them and see how they are doing – this season presents challenges to spiritual and emotional health, not just physical health.  Offer to help neighbors who are in need.  Do what you can to make a positive difference. And know that whatever you do, God is with you.
