Help Everyone Stay S.A.F.E

 

Guidelines for Drive-In Worship at TLUMC

 

HELP EVERYONE STAY S.A.F.E.

  • Stay 8 feet away
  • Always wear a mask when outside your car (except to consume Communion)
  • Forgo handshakes, hugs, and other physical expressions of greeting
  • Enjoy!

PREPARING FOR DRIVE-IN WORSHIP

  • Choose your option for participating in outdoor worship (see below)
  • Sign up to reserve your spot for Drive-In Worship at tlumc.org/registration or email us at .
  • Download and print the weekly bulletin at tlumc.org/drive-in or view the bulletin on the TLUMC app. The bulletin will have all the responses and the words to songs and hymns.
  • Bring water, sunscreen, a hat, a mask, and a lawn chair depending on which worship option you choose.
  • Make sure you know how to tune the FM radio in your car or bring a radio with you. You will receive the audio of the service live with no delay. You can also use your smartphone to download an FM app, but you will likely need to use wired earbuds to listen (they act as the antenna) and there will be delay between the audio and the live service.
  • You also may want to bring a small pocketknife or blade to help with opening the prepackaged communion elements, which can be difficult without fingernails.
  • Note that if you try to watch the service livestream on your smartphone while you are at the church there will be a delay between the livestream and the live service.

OPTIONS FOR PARTICIPATING IN DRIVE-IN WORSHIP

  • Worship Online (Safest Option) – State, local, and denominational guidelines suggest that those who are age 65+, or who have a health condition that makes them vulnerable, stay safe at home. You can watch our Drive-In service live at 9:00am on Sunday on our web site (tlumc.org/live), on our TLUMC app, on YouTube, or on Facebook Live. The service will also be rebroadcast at 11:00am on those platforms and will also be available afterward for viewing on demand. If you are staying at home because you are sheltering in place and would like Communion to be delivered to your home after the service (no-contact delivery), please email Pastor Jason at .
  • Stay in your car (Safer Option) – Those who come to join us in person for our outdoor worship service 9:00am may choose to remain in their cars. This is the next safest option that allows for clear social distancing. Cars will be parked with one parking space between them. Simply tune into the service live on your FM radio by tuning to 104.1. You may also choose to bring a lawn chair and “tailgate” in your parking space while listening on the radio. We just ask that you stay in your parking space and please wear a mask if outside your car to help maintain social distancing.
  • Sit on the grass (Safe Option) – You may also choose to bring a lawn chair and sit on the grass in front of the hill with the crosses. If you choose this option, we ask that you wear a mask and that your party maintains at least 8 feet of distance between you and others. We will have a loudspeaker system set up for this space.

PROCEDURE FOR DRIVE-IN WORSHIP

  • At the entrance to the parking lot, ushers in orange vests will hand you the number of Communion sets you need for your party.
  • Park in any open space NOT marked by a chalk “X”
  • Tune your car radio to FM 104.1
  • If you are sitting on the grass, ensure that you are wearing a mask and keeping at least 8 feet of space between parties.
  • The Pastor will tell you when it is time to consume the Communion elements.
  • At the close of the service, please exit the parking lot in an orderly manner, allowing space and time for others to exit while maintaining social distancing.
  • Bathrooms inside the church will only be open in case of emergency. Please limit to one family/person at a time if needed. No other activities will take place inside the church building.

Following these guidelines will allow us to have a safe and meaningful worship service together.

Call To Worship

Lay Reader

 

Leader: When Israel went out from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah became God's sanctuary, Israel his dominion.


People: The sea looked and fled; Jordan turned back. The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.

Leader: Why is it, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back? O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?

People: Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turns the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.

-Psalm 114.

  

Opening Hymn - Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah,
pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
hold me with thy powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me till I want no more;
feed me till I want no more.

 

Open now the crystal fountain,
whence the healing stream doth flow;
let the fire and cloudy pillar
lead me all my journey through.
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer,
be thou still my strength and shield;
be thou still my strength and shield.

 

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
bid my anxious fears subside;
death of death and hell's destruction,
land me safe on Canaan's side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee;
I will ever give to thee.

 

Collect (Unison Prayer)

Lay Reader

 

Almighty God, we hear again the story of the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea. As Moses, trusting in your promises, led the Israelites to freedom, may our time of prayer and worship open our souls to your Spirit, and free us to rejoice in the freedom we enjoy as we put our trust in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

 

Old Testament Lesson - Exodus 14:19-31

Lay Reader

 

God’s messenger, who had been in front of Israel’s camp, moved and went behind them. The column of cloud moved from the front and took its place behind them. It stood between Egypt’s camp and Israel’s camp. The cloud remained there, and when darkness fell it lit up the night. They didn’t come near each other all night.

 

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The Lord pushed the sea back by a strong east wind all night, turning the sea into dry land. The waters were split into two. The Israelites walked into the sea on dry ground. The waters formed a wall for them on their right hand and on their left. The Egyptians chased them and went into the sea after them, all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and cavalry. As morning approached, the Lord looked down on the Egyptian camp from the column of lightning and cloud and threw the Egyptian camp into a panic. The Lord jammed their chariot wheels so that they wouldn’t turn easily. The Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites, because the Lord is fighting for them against Egypt!”

 

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the water comes back and covers the Egyptians, their chariots, and their cavalry.” So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. At daybreak, the sea returned to its normal depth. The Egyptians were driving toward it, and the Lord tossed the Egyptians into the sea. The waters returned and covered the chariots and the cavalry, Pharaoh’s entire army that had followed them into the sea. Not one of them remained. The Israelites, however, walked on dry ground through the sea. The waters formed a wall for them on their right hand and on their left.

 

The Lord rescued Israel from the Egyptians that day. Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Israel saw the amazing power of the Lord against the Egyptians. The people were in awe of the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in his servant Moses.

 

New Testament Lesson - Romans 14:1-12

Lay Reader

 

Welcome the person who is weak in faith—but not in order to argue about differences of opinion. One person believes in eating everything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Those who eat must not look down on the ones who don’t, and the ones who don’t eat must not judge the ones who do, because God has accepted them. Who are you to judge someone else’s servants? They stand or fall before their own Lord (and they will stand, because the Lord has the power to make them stand). One person considers some days to be more sacred than others, while another person considers all days to be the same. Each person must have their own convictions. Someone who thinks that a day is sacred, thinks that way for the Lord. Those who eat, eat for the Lord, because they thank God. And those who don’t eat, don’t eat for the Lord, and they thank the Lord too. We don’t live for ourselves and we don’t die for ourselves. If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to God. This is why Christ died and lived: so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you look down on your brother or sister? We all will stand in front of the judgment seat of God. Because it is written,

 

As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me,
    and every tongue will give praise to God.

 

So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

 

Gospel Lesson - Matthew 18:21-35

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor

 

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, how many times should I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Should I forgive as many as seven times?”

 

Jesus said, “Not just seven times, but rather as many as seventy-seven times. Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. When he began to settle accounts, they brought to him a servant who owed him ten thousand bags of gold. Because the servant didn’t have enough to pay it back, the master ordered that he should be sold, along with his wife and children and everything he had, and that the proceeds should be used as payment. But the servant fell down, kneeled before him, and said, ‘Please, be patient with me, and I’ll pay you back.’ The master had compassion on that servant, released him, and forgave the loan.

 

“When that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him one hundred coins. He grabbed him around the throat and said, ‘Pay me back what you owe me.’

 

“Then his fellow servant fell down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I’ll pay you back.’ But he refused. Instead, he threw him into prison until he paid back his debt.

 

“When his fellow servants saw what happened, they were deeply offended. They came and told their master all that happened. His master called the first servant and said, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you appealed to me. Shouldn’t you also have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you?’ His master was furious and handed him over to the guard responsible for punishing prisoners, until he had paid the whole debt.

 

“My heavenly Father will also do the same to you if you don’t forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

Pastoral Prayer and a Time of Silence

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor

 

Affirmation of Faith - The Nicene Creed

 

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
     he came down from heaven,
     was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
     and became truly human.
     For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
     he suffered death and was buried.
     On the third day he rose again
     in accordance with the Scriptures;
     he ascended into heaven
     and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
     He will come again in glory
     to judge the living and the dead,
     and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
     is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic church.
We acknowledge one baptism
     for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
     and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Response - O God, Our Help in Ages Past (UMH #117 - vs 1.)

O God, our help in ages past,

our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home!

Offertory Prayer

  

Doxology - Praise God, from Whome All Blessings Flow (UMH #95)

praise him, all creatures here below;

Great Thanksgiving and Holy Communion

 

Pastor – The Lord be with you

 

Congregation – And also with you.

 

Pastor – Lift up your hearts.

 

Congregation – We lift them up to the Lord.

 

Pastor – Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

 

Congregation – It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

Pastor: It is right, and a good and joyful thing, Always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. And so, With your people on earth And all the company of heaven We praise our name and join their unending hymn:

 

Congregation:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

 

Holy are you, and plessed is your Son Jesus Christ. By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection you gave birth to your church, delivered us from slavery to sin and death, And made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit. On the night to which he gave himself up for us he took bread, gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said; “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” When the supper was over, he took the cup, gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you this is my blood of the new covenant, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” And so, In remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving, as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

 

Congregation: Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

 

Pastor: Pour out your Holy Spiit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.” By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet. Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy church, all honor and glory is your, almighty Father, now and for ever.

 

Congregation: Amen

 

Pastor: And now, with the confidence of children of God, let us pray:

 

The Lord’s Prayer:

 

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. 

Amen.

 

Breaking the Bread

The pastor breaks the bread and then lifts the cup, in silence or with appropriate words.

 

Giving the Bread and Cup

The bread and wine are given to the people, with these or other words being exchanged: The body of Christ, given for you. Amen. The blood of Christ, given for you. Amen.

Your blood and my acceptance

Now I’m alive to bring You praise

Your grace empowers me to win

My pain and my oppression met

Your blood and my acceptance

Now I’m alive to bring You praise
