Worship at Home with Westchester

Join in worship Sundays at 9:30am. Available all week.

Welcome to Worship at Home

Although we are apart for as long as the pandemic persists, we are together in Spirit. 


"There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. "(Ephesians 4:4–6, ESV)


Thank you for joining us in worship today. 

How to Use This Page

This page is set up as an Order of Worship. Simply scroll down and participate in the actions of the section. Some will have instruction of passages or prayers to be read, instruction for silent prayer, or a video to watch.


We want to encourage as much corporate participation as possible. Please do this with your family in your home, join together with another family that is healthy, or join with many others from Westchester who will be going through this at 9:30am on Sundays.

Scripture Reading

(One Person Read Aloud)


 Rom 8:32-39


He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

           

(All Read Together)


            No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

Prayer

(One Person Read Aloud)


Psalm 138 states,


 "I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;

  before the gods I sing your praise;

I bow down toward your holy temple

  and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,

  for you have exalted above all things

  your name and your word.

On the day I called, you answered me;

  my strength of soul you increased.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,

  you preserve my life;

you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,

  and your right hand delivers me.

The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;

  your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.

  Do not forsake the work of your hands. "

 

Father in Heaven,

We thank you for today. We thank you for Your mercies that are new every morning, and the grace you have supplied for today. We thank you for your steadfast love that never ceases, for your love that was shown through Jesus on the cross. You are the one and only Holy God, by your power we ask that you bring an end to this virus, that you help those who are sick as well as those who are treating the sick, and that you draw people from all parts of our country and world to yourself. Lord, we know you regard the lowly and ask you to look on us, forgive us our sin, and open our eyes, hearts, and minds to what you have to show us during this time. We join this Psalm in asking you to preserve us and deliver us, not just from this virus, but from our sin as well. We praise you for your steadfast love and limitless grace. Help us to extend the love we’ve experienced from you. Glorify yourself in our hearts, minds, and bodies.

In the name of your Son, Jesus, we pray,


(All) Amen

Scripture Reading

(One Person Read Aloud)


 Psalm 130:1–6

 

            Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!

                        O Lord, hear my voice!

            Let your ears be attentive

                        to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

                      

            If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities,

                        O Lord, who could stand?

            But with you there is forgiveness,

                        that you may be feared.

           

(All Read Together)            

            I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,

                        and in his word I hope;

            my soul waits for the Lord

                        more than watchmen for the morning,

                        more than watchmen for the morning. 

Corporate Prayer

At this time, please take the opportunity to lift prayers to the Lord.

  • Pray for your neighbors and community. Ask the Lord how you can serve in this time of crisis.
  • Pray for our nation, aid for those suffering, and for leaders making difficult decisions
  • Pray for those you are in community with at Westchester, requests from ABF classes, and other church requests.

Benediction

(One Person Read Aloud)


Today as things are different and seem to change every minute, trust that God is sovereign and in control.  His will is being done and his name will be glorified. 

 

1 Chronicles 29:11-12

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.
