Worship by ZOOM – Sunday July 12, 2020

Order of Service – Sunday July 12, 2020 @ 10:30AM

As we prepare our hearts and minds for worship, I’d invite you listen to this song as a way of preparing for worship this morning. It was recommended by our guest from a couple of weeks ago, Marva Wisdom.

“Blinded By Your Grace” – The Kingdom Choir

St. Andrew’s Territorial Acknowledgement

As we gather, we acknowledge that Indigenous people were here long before us who cared for this land and called it home.  This territory has a rich history and was, and is to this day, considered sacred by many First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples.  We have a responsibility to care for this land as their ancestors did and to continue to strengthen our relationships with our Indigenous neighbours.

Prayers of the People

Benediction

After worship this morning, I’d invite you to reflect on these songs. The first is another selection from The Kingdom Choir – when they sang for the Royal Wedding of Harry and Megan. The second selection is a hymn from our Book of Praise written by Andrew Donaldson – one of the co-editors of the 1998 Book of Praise.

“Stand By Me” – The Kingdom Choir
“Wordless, Ancient Earth’s Foundations”
