Miramar UMC

 

This week we can go walking and leaping and praising God, like Peter and John when they went to pray: Easter continues!

Remember there are two ways you can watch our services. One is on youtube.com by typing in the search bar: Miramar UMC and then you should see the service live streamed. If you subscribe to our service through youtube.com youtube.com you can set up reminders for the day before or 15 minutes before, whatever you like.
 
The other way to “gather” in virtual worship is through the Twitter service the same as we have been doing since March. We are thankful for our www.MiramarUMC.org. Pass around the information so that others may join in worship by clicking on the Twitter bird icon on the home page. 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.) If you lose the service for a few seconds do not worry it will probably come back, but if it is longer than that you might try clicking the refresh button in your browser window.  
Please email your prayer requests for uplifting on Sundays by sending them to
miramarpastor@gmail.com. It is best if you send them by Saturday NOON if possible.
 
Remember Sunday School is at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom so children from both services can take part. You may contact Marvia Aitken at 
marviaaitken@hotmail.com for the link. Our prayer meeting is online on Sundays at 7:30 p.m. and you may contact Marvia Aitken or Vinessa Edwards mamaness@bellsouth.net for the link.

This week, Monday through Thursday there will be someone in the church 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 is open but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot must be dedicated use 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.

WAYS to give:
1.  Online giving is available through our website
www.MiramarUMC.org. On the home page the ‘Donate’ icon (a hand with a dollar sign above it) is located at the top left corner and on the right under “Contact Us” you will see the same icon along with “Donate Online.” Click on either location for instructions. If you need help call the church office at 954-989-4711. Thanks to all who have signed up for this. The regular tithes and offerings of the church are a great source of blessing.

2. You can also mail a check to Miramar United Methodist Church. If you have your offering envelopes you will see that the address of the church is printed for mailing purposes. You may also use a regular envelope and address it to: MUMC, 2507 Utopia Drive, Miramar FL 33023. Just put your check inside, mark which funds you would like to support, put a stamp on and let the United States Postal Service do the rest! Or bring it by after the services, someone will be in the church for one hour after the worship finishes as well as Mon-Thurs 1-5 pm. We trust God will keep us strong.

3.  Also, we have the option of giving by text! Use 833-931-1791 to GivePlusText and when you text any amount, by putting that number in the message, you will be prompted to register, then fill out the details of your name, address and means of payment, and the contribution will go in! If you enter an email address you will get an immediate receipt. It is easy! If you have an Apple phone you may also get Vanco’s GivePlusMobile by downloading the app from the App Store. You may also look up YouTube videos to show how all this is done.

Thank you for the prayers for healing! 
Grace and peace, Pastor David and Pastor CJ

CALL TO WORSHIP 

HYMN 304 Easter People, Raise Your Voices+ 
1 Easter people, raise your voices, 
sounds of heaven in earth should ring. 
Christ has brought us heaven’s choices; 
heavenly music, let it ring. 
"Alleluia! Alleluia!" 
Easter people, let us sing.

2 Fear of death can no more stop us 
from our pressing here below. 
For our Lord empowered us 
to triumph over every foe. 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
On to victory now we go. 

3 Every day to us is Easter, 
with its resurrection song. 
When in trouble move the faster 
to our God who rights the wrong.
Alleluia! Alleluia! 
See the power of heavenly throngs.

OPENING PRAYER

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

Everyday With Jesus
Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before
Every day with Jesus
I love him more and more
Jesus saves and keeps me
And he’s the one I’m living for
Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before

How Great is Our God
How great is our God
How great is his name
He’s the greatest One
Forever the same
He rolled back the water
From the mighty red sea
He said “I need you…
Won’t you trust in me”

I Love That Man from Galilee
I love that man from Galilee
For he has done so very much for me
He has taken all my sin
Placed the holy ghost within
I love that man, that man from Galilee

Jesus, Name Above All Names
Jesus…name above all names
Beautiful Savior…glorious Lord
Emmanuel
God is with us
Blessed redeemer
Living Word

TIME OF SHARING JOYS & CONCERNS 

PRAYER HYMN 318 Christ is Alive+

1 Christ is alive! Let Christians sing.
His cross stands empty to the sky.
Let streets and homes with praises ring.
His love in death shall never die.

2 Christ is alive! No longer bound
to distant years in Palestine,
He comes to claim the here and now,
and dwell in every place and time.

3 Not throned afar, remotely high,
untouched, unmoved by human pains, 
but daily, in the midst of life,
Our Savior in the God-head reigns.

4 In every insult, rift, and war,
where color, scorn, or wealth divide,
He suffers still, yet loves the more,
and lives, though ever crucified.

5 Christ is alive, and comes to bring
good news to this and every age,
till earth and all creation ring
with joy, with justice, love, and praise.

WORDS: Brian Wren, 1968, alt. MUSIC: Psalmodia Evangelica, 1789    

PASTORAL PRAYER AND 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: Coasting on the breath of the Holy Spirit

HYMN OF SENDING FORTH 348 Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling+ 

1 Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, 
calling for you and for me; 
see, on the portals he's waiting and watching, 
watching for you and for me. 

Come home, come home; 
you who are weary come home; 
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, 
calling, O sinner, come home! 

2 Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading, 
pleading for you and for me? 
Why should we linger and heed not his mercies, 
mercies for you and for me?

Come home, come home; 
you who are weary come home; 
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, 
calling, O sinner, come home! 

3 Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing, 
passing from you and from me; 
shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming, 
coming for you and for me. 

Come home, come home; 
you who are weary come home; 
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, 
calling, O sinner, come home! 

4 O for the wonderful love he has promised, 
promised for you and for me! 
Though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon, 
pardon for you and for me. 

Come home, come home; 
you who are weary come home; 
earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, 
calling, O sinner, come home! 

WORDS: Will L. Thompson, 1880 MUSIC: Will L. Thompson, 1880
