“Open the Eyes of My Heart” Service on May 24th

This is the video worship service that we posted for Sunday, May 24th. May 24th was the seventh Sunday of Easter season, which runs for 50 days and ends on Pentecost. Jesus has been reminding his disciples since the resurrection that this is now the beginning of how we will carry his heart within ours. This is how we get to the heart of the matter and today we are invited to Open our Hearts to see and share Jesus.  In worship, we remember Christ is still with us.  We get to share Christ.

“Kept In Our Hearts” Worship Service for Sunday, May 17th

May 17th was the sixth Sunday of Easter season.  We are getting to the heart of the matter and looking to Jesus who was in that Sunday’s gospel lesson of John 14: 15-20 promises us that by the Holy Spirit we are connected by love to God and each other.  How precious we are that God’s love is kept in our hearts to fill our lives with purpose.

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday Service

For Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, Pastor Kim offered an online worship service for safe at home observance of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday or both.

During this 27 min service, we encountered through art and dialog four people who had front row seats in this incredible real-life drama of Jesus last hours: Mary, sister of Martha and Lazarus and friend of Jesus; Judas; a Roman soldier; and Salome, one of the inner circle of women disciples who followed Jesus. We sing two hymns, “Were You There” and “Servant Song”, and have time for silent prayer.
