Dear Miramar United Methodist Church family and friends,

As this new normal continues we have many opportunities to live out our commitment to Jesus Christ. Thanks to those who keep making those calls, sending the texts, doing the Facetime chat, etc. Thanks to those who help with the Thursday morning food distributions. Thanks to those who have signed on to the Wednesday 7:00 p.m. Bible studies. Thanks to those who remain in earnest prayer for healing and help. Thanks to those who “tune in” every week to the live stream worship and who share the blessing with others. We will continue our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services (except when we have a fifth Sunday of the month 10:00 a.m. service.)  What a mighty God we serve!

We are thankful for our website. Pass around the information so that others may join in worship by clicking on the Twitter bird icon on the home page. Older services can still be viewed also. Please email your prayer requests, if possible by Saturday night, for uplifting on Sunday by sending them to

Thanks to those who have signed on to e-giving, or texted in their gifts. Thanks to those who have dropped by for a short visit, keeping social distance, or to drop off items for the food pantry or their gift in person or to pick up the Upper Room daily devotional guide. This week, Monday through Thursday there will be someone in the church or pastor’s office from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day. Please remember to enter from the south entrance near the Pastor’s office. No other doors will be open for church business. The pre school has reopened but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot has been sanitized and must be kept clean for the little children of the pre school. Please let friends with pre school aged children know that they can enroll the children in our pre school. The government pays the fees for the children of first responders.

Looking forward to worshiping with you through the Holy Spirit. 
Grace and peace, Pastor David

Call to worship

*Hymn 64 Holy, Holy, Holy      
1 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

2 Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee
perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Children’s Time

*Hymn 141 Children of the Heavenly Father 
1 Children of the heavenly Father
Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in Heaven
Such a refuge e’er was given.

2 God His own doth tend and nourish;
In His holy courts they flourish;
From all evil things He spares them;
In His mighty arms He bears them.

3 Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth,
And their sorrows all He knoweth.

4 Though He giveth or He taketh,
God His children ne’er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy.
WORDS: Caroline V. Sandell-Berg, 1855 trans. by Ernst W. Olson from Swedish, 1925 TRYGGARE KAN INGEN VARA, MUSIC: Swedish melody  ccli #242496

Prayer Hymn 396 O Jesus, I Have Promised 
1 O Jesus, I have promised 
to serve thee to the end; 
be thou forever near me, 
my Master and my Friend; 
I shall not fear the battle 
if thou art by my side, 
nor wander from the pathway 
if thou wilt be my guide. 

2 O let me feel thee near me!
The world is ever near; 
I see the sights that dazzle, 
the tempting sounds I hear; 
my foes are ever near me, 
around me and within; 
but Jesus, draw thou nearer, 
and shield my soul from sin. 

3 O let me hear thee speaking 
in accents clear and still, 
above the storms of passion, 
the murmurs of self will. 
O speak to reassure me, 
to hasten or control; 
O speak and make me listen,
thou guardian of my soul. 

4 O Jesus, thou hast promised 
to all who follow thee, 
that where thou art in glory
there shall thy servant be; 
And, Jesus, I have promised 
to serve thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow,
my Master and my Friend. 
WORDS: John E. Bode, ca. 1866 MUSIC: Arthur H. Mann, 1881. ccli #242496

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer                         

Let us share together 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, the power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon   Love the Lord your God

*Hymn of sending forth 671 Lord, Dismiss Us  
1. Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing;
fill our hearts with joy and peace;
let us each, thy love possessing,
triumph in redeeming grace.
O refresh us, O refresh us,
traveling through this wilderness.

2. Thanks we give and adoration
for thy gospel's joyful sound.
May the fruits of thy salvation
in our hearts and lives abound:
ever faithful, ever faithful
to the truth may we be found.
WORDS: attr. To John Fawcett, 1773, MUSIC: The European Magazine and Review, 1792; harm. from The Methodist Hymn and Tune Book, 1889, alt.  ccli #242496
