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 – “Reckless Love”
Verse 1
Before I spoke a word
You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath
You breathed your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

Chorus
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God
It chases me down
Fights ’til I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still you give yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God

Verse 2
When I was your foe, still your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth
You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me

Chorus
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God
It chases me down
Fights ’til I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still you give yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God

Bridge (x2)
There’s no shadow you won’t light up
Mountain you won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall you won’t kick down
No lie you won’t tear down
Coming after me

Chorus
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God
It chases me down
Fights ’til I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still you give yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending
Reckless love of God

Word of Blessing

After Worship Music – “Reckless Love”

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.
