Miramar UMC

 

We celebrate the ones who gave us life, and especially that Jesus is the one whom we seek to obey, and in obedience ... Easter continues!

If you have not received your Covid vaccine yet, the church encourages you to get your vaccine this Saturday in our parking lot or very soon in some other location. Please know that getting your vaccine is a great way to love your neighbor and yourself. See first page for details. We are thankful for the chance to partner with Trinity Healthcare for this important event where we can share love with our community.

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

CALL TO WORSHIP 

HYMN 145 Morning Has Broken+ 

1 Morning has broken
Like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken
Like the first bird.
Praise for the singing!
Praise for the morning!
Praise for them, springing
Fresh from the Word!

2 Sweet the rain’s new fall
Sunlit from Heaven,
Like the first dewfall
On the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness
Where his feet pass.

3 Mine is the sunlight!
Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light
Eden saw play!
Praise with elation,
Praise every morning,
God’s re-creation
Of the new day!

WORDS: Eleanor Farjeon, 1931 MUSIC: Trad. Gaelic melody; harm. By Carlton R. Young, 1988

OPENING PRAYER

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

I Will Enter His Gates
I will enter his gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter his courts with praise
I will say “this is the day that the Lord hath made”
I will rejoice for he has made me glad.
He has made me glad…he has made me glad
I will rejoice for he has made me glad
He has made me glad…he has made me glad
I will rejoice for he has made me glad

I’m Gonna Sing
I’m gonna sing, sing, sing
I’m gonna shout, shout, shout
I’m gonna sing, I’m gonna shout
Praise the Lord
When those gates are open wide
I’m gonna sit at Jesus’ side
I’m gonna sing…I’m gonna shout
Praise the Lord.

One Day At a Time Sweet Jesus
One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you
Just give me the strength
To do every day what I have to do
Yesterday's gone, sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord, help me today, show me the way
One day at a time

1 I'm only human, I'm just a man/woman
Help me believe in what I could be
And all that I am
Show me the stairway that I have to climb
Lord, for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time

One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you
Just give me the strength
To do every day what I have to do
Yesterday's gone, sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord, help me today, show me the way
One day at a time

2 Do you remember when you walked among men
Well, Jesus you know
If you're looking' below, it's worse now than then
Pushing and shoving, crowding my mind
So for my sake, teach me to take
One day at a time

One day at a time sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking from you
Just give me the strength
To do every day what I have to do
Yesterday's gone, sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord, help me today, show me the way
One day at a time

CHILDREN’S TIME

HYMN 451 Be Thou My Vision+ 

1 Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

2 Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee, and thou with me, Lord;
Thou and thou only, first in my heart, 
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

3 Great God of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

WORDS: Ancient Iris; trans. by Mary E. Byrne, 1905; versed by Eleanor H. Hull. 1912, alt. MUSIC: Trad. Irish melody; harm. by Carlton R. Young, 1963

TIME OF SHARING JOYS & CONCERNS 

PRAYER HYMN 178 Hope of the World+

1 Hope of the world, thou Christ of great compassion,
speak to our fearful hearts by conflict rent.
Save us, thy people, from consuming passion,
who by our own false hopes and aims are spent.

2 Hope of the world, God's gift from highest heaven,
bringing to hungry souls the bread of life,
still let thy spirit unto us be given,
to heal earth's wounds and end all bitter strife.

3 Hope of the world, afoot on dusty highways,
showing to wandering souls the path of light,
walk thou beside us, lest the tempting byways
lure us away from thee to endless night.

4 Hope of the world, who by thy cross didst save us
from death and dark despair, from sin and guilt,
we render back the love thy mercy gave us;
take thou our lives, and use them as thou wilt.

5 Hope of the world, O Christ, o'er death victorious,
who by this sign didst conquer grief and pain,
we would be faithful to thy gospel glorious;
thou are our Lord! Thou dost forever reign.

WORDS: Georgia Harkness, 1954 MUSIC: V. Earl Copes, 1963

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: Whose Children are These?

HYMN OF SENDING FORTH 308 Thine Be the Glory+ 

1 Thine is the glory, risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
kept the folded graveclothes where thy body lay.

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won.

2 Lo! Jesus meets thee, risen from the tomb;
lovingly he greets thee, scatters fear and gloom.
Let the church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
for our Lord now liveth; death hath lost its sting.

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won.

3 No more we doubt thee, glorious Prince of life!
Life is naught without thee; aid us in our strife.
Make us more than conquerors, through thy deathless love;
Bring us safe through Jordan to thy home above.

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won.

WORDS: Edmond L. Budry, 1904; trans. By R. Birch Hoyle, 1923 MUSIC: Harmonia Sacra, ca. 1753; arr. from G. F. Handel, 1747
