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.

Opening Song - Scandal of Grace

Clint Perry, Director of Contemporary Worship and Worship Media

  

Grace, what have you done?

Murdered for me on that cross

Accused in absence of wrong

My sin washed away in your blood

Too much to make sense of it all

I know that your love breaks my fall

The scandal of grace, you died in my place

So my soul will live

Oh to be like you

Give all I have just to know you

Jesus, there’s no one besides you

Forever the hope in my heart

Death, where is your sting?

Your power is as dead as my sin

The cross has taught me to live

In mercy, my heart now to sing

The day and its trouble shall come

I know that your strength is enough

The scandal of grace, you died in my place

So my soul will live

Oh to be like you

Give all I have just to know you

Jesus, there’s no one besides you

Forever the hope in my heart

Oh to be like you

Give all I have…

 

Collect (Unison Prayer)

Lay Reader

 

O Lord, you have taught that without love, all are deeds are worth nothing: Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts the most excellent gift of charity, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you; grant this for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Old Testament Lesson - Exodus 16:2-15

Lay Reader

 

The whole Israelite community complained against Moses and Aaron in the desert. The Israelites said to them, “Oh, how we wish that the Lord had just put us to death while we were still in the land of Egypt. There we could sit by the pots cooking meat and eat our fill of bread. Instead, you’ve brought us out into this desert to starve this whole assembly to death.”

 

Then the Lord said to Moses, “I’m going to make bread rain down from the sky for you. The people will go out each day and gather just enough for that day. In this way, I’ll test them to see whether or not they follow my Instruction. On the sixth day, when they measure out what they have collected, it will be twice as much as they collected on other days.” So Moses and Aaron said to all the Israelites, “This evening you will know that it was the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt. And in the morning you will see the Lord’s glorious presence, because your complaints against the Lord have been heard. Who are we? Why blame us?” Moses continued, “The Lord will give you meat to eat in the evening and your fill of bread in the morning because the Lord heard the complaints you made against him. Who are we? Your complaints aren’t against us but against the Lord.”

 

Then Moses said to Aaron, “Say to the whole Israelite community, ‘Come near to the Lord, because he’s heard your complaints.’” As Aaron spoke to the whole Israelite community, they turned to look toward the desert, and just then the glorious presence of the Lord appeared in the cloud.

 

The Lord spoke to Moses, “I’ve heard the complaints of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat. And in the morning you will have your fill of bread. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God.’”

 

In the evening a flock of quail flew down and covered the camp. And in the morning there was a layer of dew all around the camp. When the layer of dew lifted, there on the desert surface were thin flakes, as thin as frost on the ground. When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?” They didn’t know what it was.

 

Moses said to them, “This is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat.

 

New Testament Lesson - Philippians 1:21-30

Lay Reader

 

Because for me, living serves Christ and dying is even better. If I continue to live in this world, I get results from my work. But I don’t know what I prefer. I’m torn between the two because I want to leave this life and be with Christ, which is far better. However, it’s more important for me to stay in this world for your sake. I’m sure of this: I will stay alive and remain with all of you to help your progress and the joy of your faith, and to increase your pride in Christ Jesus through my presence when I visit you again.

 

Most important, live together in a manner worthy of Christ’s gospel. Do this, whether I come and see you or I’m absent and hear about you. Do this so that you stand firm, united in one spirit and mind as you struggle together to remain faithful to the gospel. That way, you won’t be afraid of anything your enemies do. Your faithfulness and courage are a sign of their coming destruction and your salvation, which is from God. God has generously granted you the privilege, not only of believing in Christ but also of suffering for Christ’s sake. You are having the same struggle that you saw me face and now hear that I’m still facing.

 

Gospel Lesson - Matthew 20:1-16

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor

 

“The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. After he agreed with the workers to pay them a denarion, he sent them into his vineyard.

 

“Then he went out around nine in the morning and saw others standing around the marketplace doing nothing. He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and I’ll pay you whatever is right.’ And they went.

 

“Again around noon and then at three in the afternoon, he did the same thing. Around five in the afternoon he went and found others standing around, and he said to them, ‘Why are you just standing around here doing nothing all day long?’

 

“‘Because nobody has hired us,’ they replied.

 

“He responded, ‘You also go into the vineyard.’

 

“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his manager, ‘Call the workers and give them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and moving on finally to the first.’ When those who were hired at five in the afternoon came, each one received a denarion. Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more. But each of them also received a denarion. When they received it, they grumbled against the landowner, ‘These who were hired last worked one hour, and they received the same pay as we did even though we had to work the whole day in the hot sun.’

 

“But he replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I did you no wrong. Didn’t I agree to pay you a denarion? Take what belongs to you and go. I want to give to this one who was hired last the same as I give to you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with what belongs to me? Or are you resentful because I’m generous?’ So those who are last will be first. And those who are first will be last.”

 

Message: A Caution Against Complaint

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor

 

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 - Thank You, Lord (UMH -84) (2x)

Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord.
I just want to thank you, Lord.

 

Invitation to the Table 

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor, Lead Pastor

Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon

All: God of fruitful labor,
work sometimes brings out the worst in us.
At home, at school, in the workplace,
even in our relationship with you,
we too easily question what others do and get,
instead of taking care of our own business.
Take away our bitterness.
Teach us the art of the careful complaint.
Give us grateful hearts, we pray. Amen.

 

Pastor: Hear the good news:
what we do matters,
but our salvation is God's doing.
God hears our complaints,
but also our prayers.
God will not forget us.In Christ's name, we are forgiven. Amen.

  

Presenting our Tithes and Offerings

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor, Lead Pastor

 

Offertory Prayer

  

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

 

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below;
praise him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen.

 

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.

 

Closing Hymn - Forth in Thy Name, O Lord

Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go,
my daily labor to pursue;
thee, only thee, resolved to know
in all I think or speak or do.

 

The task thy wisdom hath assigned,
O let me cheerfully fulfill;
in all my works thy presence find,
and prove thy good and perfect will.

 

Thee may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
and labor on at thy command,
and offer all my works to thee.

 

For thee delightfully employ
what e'er thy bounteous grace hath given;
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heaven.

 

Sending Forth

Rev. Dr. Bob Kaylor
