Palm Sunday Worship Service – April 5, 2020

Welcome to Worship not at but as Immanuel CRC! 

We gather in homes across the area under Jesus’ promise that: “where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20). Whether worshiping alone today or gathered with others, as you join the prayers, songs, and scripture of this service, you join in worship together, in faith, with a whole church family.

All songs covered under CCLI license 426968 and One License A-728128
Video recorded with all participants safely distanced 2 meters apart!


Worship is a verb. 
It’s something we do, 
not something we merely watch or listen to.

The invitation of worship in this season then, is that you find ways to actively participate in the worship service. 
Here are some ideas on how:

1. Get involved with your voice by reading the scriptures and confessions aloud, praying the prayers included, or praying your own. Sing along with the songs in the service!

2. Get involved with your body by standing for some of the songs, for the Greeting and Blessing too—extending your hands to receive it.

3. Get involved with your heart and mind by taking time to discuss or reflect on the scripture and by taking time to add your prayers to the congregational prayer.

4. If you’re a musician of whatever caliber: use the PDF’s of the songs attached to the liturgy document to play and sing the music at home rather than using the media provided (or simply muting it as it plays so that you still get the words for everyone else!).

5. For families with younger children, be sure to use the craft materials sent out for this weekend in our daily email!

To help with pausing, resuming, and skipping around, timestamps are listed on the left of the liturgy document.

May God bless you richly as you worship Him this Sunday!
