SUNDAY SERVICE GUIDE – MARCH 29th, 2020
Good morning Rooted Fellowship. We understand worship looks a bit different this morning. We may not physically be together, but we can all be present with the Father this morning, as one body.
It is important to remember that even though we are not gathered together, we still remain a church, although scattered.
Here follows a guide to help you worship this morning. Whether you are by yourself or with friends and/or family, we pray that God would meet you in a powerful way.
CALL TO WORSHIP

and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.”

[PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE]
PRAYER FOR TRUST
Father, sometimes the way ahead seems so clear, but at other times the way seems covered with uncertainty and filled with more questions than answers.
We want to be in Your perfect will, Lord, and so, we pray that Your will be done in every area of our lives.
As we step out into the future, we place our trust in You, for we are sure that You read the thoughts of our hearts and know that our desire is to remain in the centre of Your perfect will.
Lord, lead us on the right path that is best for us. Help us to trust in You, for You have promised to be with us wherever we go and You know the steps that we take. Keep us safe we pray, for our trust is in You, and may we only do that which glorifies You.
In Jesus name, we pray,

DISCUSSION AND PRAYER
Share with someone what resonated with you. What do you sense God is saying? Take time to pray in response of God’s Word communicated to us.
During this time of uncertainty, it is important for us to continue to worship through our giving as a confession of the reality that we depend entirely on God’s provision. Further, it is our privilege to participate in extending His love to others.
As we prepare our hearts to give, let’s say this generosity prayer together.
Lord, it is from Your goodness that we have received all that we have. With open hands, we give back what was always Yours, so that your Kingdom might come on earth as it is in Heaven.
