Order of Worship

Pre-Worship Music – “Holy Water”

Greeting

Opening Song – “Blessed Be Your Name”
Verse 1
Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
Blessed Be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Chorus
Every blessing You pour out, I’ll
Turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Verse 2
Blessed be Your name
When the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Chorus
Every blessing You pour out I’ll
Turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name, oh
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Bridge (x2)
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

Chorus (x3)
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name, oh

Congregational Prayer

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

Children’s Time

Offering

Scripture
Luke 6:37-38; Matthew 6:19-20

Sermon

Closing Song – “Hold Us Together”
Verse 1
It don’t have a job
Don’t pay your bills
Won’t buy you a home in Beverly Hills
Won’t fix your life in five easy steps
Ain’t the law of the land or the government
But it’s all you need,

Chorus
Love will hold us together
Make us a shelter to weather the storm
And I’ll be my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know that we’re not alone

Verse 2
He’s waiting for you
Knockin’ at your door!
In the moment of truth
When your heart hits the floor
And when you’re on your knees,

Chorus
Love will hold us together
Make us a shelter weather the storm
And I’ll be my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know that we’re not alone

Bridge (x2)
This is the first day of the rest of your life
This is the first day of the rest of your life
‘Cause even in the dark you can still see the light
It’s gonna be alright, it’s gonna be alright

Chorus
And love will hold us together
Make us a shelter weather the storm
And I’ll be my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know that we’re not alone

Word of Blessing

After Worship Music – “Hold Us Together”

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.
