This week’s order for worship:

Prelude/ Anna

Invocation (Responsive Call to Worship; and Unison Prayer) / Dan

Hymn/ “Think About His Love” (worship booklet, p. 87)

Think About His Love

Think about His love, think about His goodness. Think about His grace that’s bro’t us through.
For as high as the heavens above, so great is the measure of our Father’s love.
Great is the measure of our Father’s love.

Children’s Message/ Linda

Special Music/ Anna

Scripture Reading/Dan Matthew 18:21-35

Sermon/Prayer/ Dan

Hymn/ “I Then Shall Live” (#133)

I Then Shall Live

  1. I then shall live as one who’s been forgiven; I’ll walk with joy to know my debts are paid.
    I know my name is clear before my Father; I am His child, and I am not afraid.
    So greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother; The law of lover I gladly will obey.
  2. I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion; I’ve been so loved that I’ll risk loving, too.
    I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges; I dare to see another’s poinot of view.
    And when relationships demand commitment, Then I’ll be there to care and follow through.
  3. Your kingdom come around and thru and in me, Your pow’r and glory, let them shine thru me;
    Your pow’r and glory, let them shine thru me; Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,
    And may Your living Kingdom come in me.
    The Bread of Life, O may I share with honor, And may you fee a hungry world thru me.

Benediction/ Dan

Postlude/ Anna

Last week, your Ivy Chapel worship team experimented with a new way (for us) to create a more engaging, communal online worship. We produced a short live online worship with special music, a prayer and a children’s message.

This week, we’d love for you to join us online for a full, live worship service. 

The service will start at 10 a.m. (or a little after – you know Ivy) on Ivy Chapel’s Facebook page. You do notneed to have a Facebook account to watch.

Head to www.facebook.com/IvyChapel. You can use your smart phone, tablet or computer.

If you have an account and are logged in, you should be all set. If not, it will seem like Facebook is demanding you to login, but you can ignore these boxes and scroll down the page. You may need to click on “not now” if it asks you to login again.

As you scroll down the page, if we’re live, you’ll see the video. Click on the video to join the live worship in progress. You can click on the small icon with two diagonal arrows to expand the video to your whole screen.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the live worship. We will post a link to the video here on the Ivy Chapel website later in the day.

If you do tune in, please let us know what you think.

Journey toward the Miracle of Easter

February 16, 2010 by  
Filed under News & Announcements

From the United Church of Christ…
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent—a season of self-examination, prayer, fasting and works of love. In many churches, ashes are placed on the forehead as a reminder of mortality.

The word “Lent” is from the Middle English verb meaning “to lengthen.” In the Northern Hemisphere, the season corresponds with the lengthening of days during late winter and early spring.

During Lent, Christians prepare themselves spiritually for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday. The season spans 40 days: the number 40 symbolizes spiritual journeys home, corresponding to the 40 days Jesus fasted in the desert in preparation for his ministry and the 40 years Israel journeyed through the wilderness towards the promised land. The traditional color of Lent is purple. During Holy Week, red is sometimes worn to symbolize the blood shed by Jesus for the salvation of humanity. In some traditions, following Maundy Thursday’s service, the sanctuary is stripped of color and ornament as a gesture which may suggest keeping vigil with Christ on the cross and in the tomb.

For more information about the journey toward the Miracle of Easter, and for information about how to make your own journey, visit the United Church of Christ’s Lent website.

Time line of events:
•The day starts with an all-day Prayer Vigil in the sanctuary from 6am to 5:30pm.
(Half-hour timeslots–7:30am through 9:30am, 11:30am through 1:30pm and 2:30pm through 5:30pm)

•At 6pm we will break bread together in Fellowship Hall. Our meal will be a simple supper prior to worship.

•Beginning at 7:30pm, Ivy Chapel will conclude the day with a worship service in the sanctuary.
