Alternative Home Worship Resources

The Week of April 5, Palm Sunday

In addition to the worship service below, all are invited to be connected with, supportive of, and supported by other persons during this time of the Coronavirus stay-at-home period through one of our 18 Community Groups that meet by phone. If you are not a part of a Community Group, you are welcome to join with Pastor Dave in an open Community Conference Call this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Call: (605) 313-4464 and use the access code 128198#.

We hope to support each other during this unprecedented time in a way that protects, encourages, and supports one another in the love and peace of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

A Word from Pastor Dave . . .

Today is Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus entered Jerusalem with the people praising Him with shouts of Hosanna and waving branches. To mark this day, we decorate our place of worship with palm branches and with a procession of children waiving them. Since we are worshiping this Palm Sunday in our homes, we invite you to place a branch or greenery on your door or in your window as a witness of faith and to claim this day as the day of Palm Sunday in honor of the Lord.
The Hosanna filled celebration of Palm Sunday is bittersweet, as it marks the beginning of Holy Week. Four days after Palm Sunday, the same people that celebrated Jesus with shouts of Hosanna were yelling “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” The next day He was executed on a cross. Today in our worship we will look deep at how it is possible to move from “Hosanna” to “Crucify Him!” in four short days . . . as we seek to understand the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross.

Call to Worship
(Matthew 21:7-11):

The disciples brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, “Who is this?” The crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Scripture:
Isaiah 53:1-12
“Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by others; a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity; and as one from whom others hide their faces he was despised, and we held him of no account. Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By a perversion of justice he was taken away. Who could have imagined his future? For he was cut off from the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people. They made his grave with the wicked and his tomb with the rich, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him with pain. When you make his life an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, and shall prolong his days; through him the will of the Lord shall prosper. Out of his anguish he shall see light; he shall find satisfaction through his knowledge. The righteous one,[h] my servant, shall make many righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will allot him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Mark 10:45
“Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.’”

Spend an amount of time that you are comfortable with in prayer (either silently or with persons praying out loud). Finish with the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray:

“Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.”

Home Holy Communion:
Our Bishop, joining together with Bishops around the world, have encouraged churches to provide a way to celebrate Holy Communion in homes. We invite you to share in a Home Holy Communion this day. The elements can be bread of any kind (or crackers), and grape juice, wine, or water. A simple plate and glass is appropriate.

In addition to the worship service below, all are invited to be connected with, supportive of, and supported by other persons during this time of the Coronavirus stay-at-home period through one of our 18 Community Groups that meet by phone.  If you are not a part of a Community Group, you are welcome to join with Pastor Dave in an open Community Conference Call this Sunday at 1:00 p.m.  Call: (605) 313-4464 and use the access code 128198#.  

A Word from Pastor Dave . . .

In difficult times our need for God and one another grows more acute. The focus of this week’s worship service is on finding ways to draw near to God and to one another; this includes addressing one of the biggest impediments to both: our judging of others and our judging of our self. Jesus offers some powerful guidance when he says: “Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.”

Call to Worship
Psalm 46:1-11

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see the works of the LORD, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire. Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Amen.

With this Sunday’s sermon being more geared to adults, we want to make sure the children have plenty of resources for worship as well. You will find an excellent teaching on the resurrection eggs by Marcy Bradshaw below as well as a link for a full kids program that includes worship songs, Bible Story, teaching, and personal application — all age appropriate.

Gospel Reading: Matthew 7:1-5
Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you also will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.

The Week of March 22

A Word from Pastor Dave . . . .

As you begin your home worship today, I ask you to imagine the following:

All the individuals and families of Point Pleasant Church in their homes; each taking time to intentionally share in this same worship service: reading the same scriptures, watching the same video messages (three this week), listening to the same songs or hymns, and finishing with the same powerful benediction words from Jude. And now add to that image — the risen Christ present also in each and every one of those home worship services. And yes, this includes your home worship service right now. May that incredible image become very real for you as you worship God this day.

If you haven’t been contacted with a specific time to call, or if you would like an additional Community Group Conference Call – please call in at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22nd for an open meeting led by Pastor Dave available to anyone and everyone.
Call: (605) 313-4464 and use the access code 128198#.

Call to Worship:

Psalm 139:1-12

O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.
You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely.
You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.

Gospel Reading: Matthew 5:1-16
“When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
“Blessed are the humble poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”

Call to Worship
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” From Psalm 23
