The Lord said “Wherever two or three are gathered in my name” that He would be with them so gather together this Sunday and worship. If you do not have a home church to attend this coming Sunday please use this Worship Service Plan and enjoy a service of your own. You can use this worship service plan in your homes, prisons, and hospitals. The church is a collection of all Christians and has nothing to do with the building.
As I worked to create FaithByTheWord’s website and facebook pages, it occurred to me that with all of the resources available to anyone who accesses them, that it would be a great idea if anyone that so desired, could lead their own Worship Services.
Please know that this is not to replace your own home church’s services but a supplement to weekly worship that you can provide for those not as fortunate to have a home church or for those who do but are now restricted from gathering due to the coronavirus restrictions on groups gathering larger than 10.
I know so many shut-ins in my ministry as a family care pastor (374 in nursing homes alone) that are unable to get to church at all any more. So why not take the worship service to them in the nursing home, hospital, hospice home, or wherever they are. We are the church, not the building.
Therefore, every week, starting with Sunday, April 26, 2020, there will be a new Worship Service Plan posted, complete with Prayers, Praise Music, Inspiring Scripture, Sunday School Lesson, and Sermon.
There will come a day when your loved one is in Heaven and you will treasure these small, intimate, worship services you conducted with them.
These services will remain on the website permanently so if you miss a week and want to go back and catch up it won’t be a problem at all.
These services and many other resources to assist you in both public and private worship can be found on the FaithByTheWord Menubar under “Worship”.
Please let us know how this works for you and if you have any suggestions for improvement and please share the link to this service with as many as you can. We never know who might come to know The Lord for such a time as this.
