Pastor: David Range

On Sunday, June 13,  the church will be open for limited in-person worship. Ideally, the leaders think that we should wait until August when the CDC predicts Covid-19 will likely be less of a problem. However, for those of you who would like to begin attending services in the sanctuary before then, we are implementing a reservation system.

If you would like to attend in person, please call Beth, our church Administrative Assistant, at 954-989-4711 or send an email to mirumeth@gmail.com by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday of the week you hope to attend. If there are any seats left after this deadline, Beth will post the number available in the bulletin that she emails on Thursdays. This will provide an opportunity for those who didn't reserve a seat before the deadline to still be added to the reservation list.  When you call or email, let her know how many would like to attend from your household, and which service (8:30 or 11:00 a.m.). If the allocated number for that Sunday has been filled, she will ask if she can make a reservation for you for the following week.

 Please be advised that without a reservation, you might be turned away if we are at capacity. 

During the service we will encourage social distancing and hand sanitizing. Seating will be available in the foyer and Fellowship Hall as well as the sanctuary. Both have been set up with screens for the PowerPoint presentation and live video stream from the pulpit. We will continue to live stream the services on Twitter and YouTube for those who would like to continue to participate from home. 

If you attend in person we ask that you wear a  mask at all times, unless you are participating in the service from the pulpit. We encourage taking the vaccine in order to protect yourself and others near you.

Thank you for your cooperation. We are trying to figure out the best way to do this, so please be patient with us.

We celebrate the way God led the early disciples and the way God still calls leaders today… Pentecost 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 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 available by going to our www.MiramarUMC.org website. 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 image 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, on Monday it is Memorial Day so Tuesday 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 preschool is open but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot must be dedicated for the little children of the preschool. Please let friends with preschool aged children know that they can enroll the children in our preschool.

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 1:00-5:00 p.m. 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 64 Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty+

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 157 Jesus Shall Reign

1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
does its successive journeys run;
his kingdom spread from shore to shore,
till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2 To Jesus endless prayer be made,
and endless praises crown his head;
His name like sweet perfume shall rise
with every morning sacrifice.

3 People and realms of every tongue
dwell on his love with sweetest song,
and infant voices shall proclaim
their early blessings on his name.

4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns:
all prisoners leap and loose their chains,
the weary find eternal rest,
and all who suffer want are blest.

5 Let every creature rise and bring
honors peculiar to our King,
angels descend with songs again,
and earth repeat the loud amen! 

WORDS: Isaac Watts, 1719 MUSIC: John Hatton, 1793

TIME OF SHARING JOYS & CONCERNS 

PRAYER HYMN 729 O Day of Peace That Dimly Shines+

1 O day of peace that dimly shines
through all our hopes and prayers and dreams,
guide us to justice, truth, and love,
delivered from our selfish schemes.
May swords of hate fall from our hands,
our hearts from envy find release,
till by God's grace our warring world
shall see Christ's promised reign of peace.

2 Then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb,
nor shall the fierce devour the small;
as beasts and cattle calmly graze,
a little child shall lead them all.
Then enemies shall learn to love,
all creatures find their true accord;
the hope of peace shall be fulfilled,
for all the earth shall know the Lord.

WORDS: Carl P. Daw, Jr., 1982, MUSIC: Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, 1917; harm. by Charles H. Webb, 1987

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.

Please stand for the gospel according to Luke 5:1-11

SERMON: Three Men For the Trinity

HYMN OF SENDING FORTH 593 Here I Am, Lord

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

2 I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people's pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them.
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

3 I, the Lord of wind    and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

WORDS: Dan Schutte, 1981 MUSIC: Dan Schutte, 1981; adapt. by Carlton R. Young, 1988
