Tiny Church - June 28-July 5 


Tiny Church

Proper 8 – June 28, 2020


Opening Song – Marvelous Light


Into marvelous light I'm running Out of darkness out of shame
Through the cross You are the truth You are the life You are the way


I once was fatherless A stranger with no hope Your kindness wakened me Wakened me from my sleep now Your love it beckons deeply A call to come and die By grace now I will come And take this life take Your life


Sin has lost its power Death has lost its sting From the grave You've risen Victoriously


My dead heart now is beating My deepest stains now clean Your breath fills up my lungs Now I'm free now I'm free My dead heart now is beating My deepest stains now clean Your breath fills up my lungs
Now I'm free now I'm free


Opening Prayer 

Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Matthew 10:40-42 - "Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple -- truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward."


According to Jesus how does welcome work?

Regarding prophets and the righteous, how do rewards work?

Who will not lose their reward?



Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.


Almighty God, our heavenly Father, send the power of Your Holy Spirit upon us, that we may experience anew the suffering, death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, May Your Spirit help us to know, in the breaking of this bread and drinking of this cup, the presence of Christ Who gave His body and blood for all.  And may Your Holy Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in service to all the world. Amen.
