Worship from Home
Blizzard Worship for April 15, 2018!
It may be snowy and cold outside, but God warms our hearts!
Worship at home by following the guide below…
O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation from heaven to earth and whose presence we find wherever we go: Watch over those who travel through snow and on ice; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them safely home to those who love them; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Scripture Reading: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
Beautiful: God makes wonderful and beautiful things. You were made by God. Just as each snowflake is unique and special, so is each person in this world. You are unique and special. See how the snow sparkles? It glows with the light of God. You are also called to sparkle and glow with God’s light. You are fearfully and wonderfully made!
Blizzard of Generosity
Even if we don’t worship in our church building this week, ministry still continues and your ongoing generosity is needed. Please consider give offering this week through electronic giving or mailing it to the office. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had a Blizzard of Generosity stronger than the blizzard happening outside right now? Send your offerings along with the snowflakes.
While you are inside make snowflakes out of white paper, lots of snowflakes! On each snowflake, write a special message on it to spread kindness, inspiration, gratitude and the love of Jesus! Give a snowflake with a message on it to a friend, tape one on a neighbor’s door, put it in your child’s backpack, be creative! See if you can make a kindness blizzard by sharing lots and lots of snowflakes with people all around you!
Look for special winter crafts.
Go outside and make snow angels.
Fill your bird feeders.
Read a book.
Watch a good movie.
Thank God for our blessings.
