Worship at St. Helena United Methodist Church

Worship every Sunday

Pastor Burke Owens preaching.

Wherever we are in our spiritual journey,we intend to come into closer relationship with God and with each other. God's presence awakens our hearts, and informs our lives, so that we are grounded by divine grace.

Our church is a place where we practice living in faith, supporting each other so that with time we become the beloved community. 

For when we awaken our soul, God is brought into the world. 

 

Sunday Worship on March 29, will be  Livestreamed on our church Facebook page            @ 10 a.m.

Announcements- As a result of the Coronavirus situation, all upcoming church events and gatherings are canceled through April 7th. At that time, our situation will be reconsidered as to next steps. Thank you for patience and faith.
This past week two of our members shared their thoughts and prayers in a post that was sent by Constant Contact. A great idea! So, please join in and send the pastor a reflection on this season and your own experience of it.

Unity prayerPsalm 51

Have mercy on me, God, according to your faithful love!
    Wipe away my wrongdoings according to your great compassion!
Wash me completely clean of my guilt;
    purify me from my illness!
Purify me with hyssop and I will be clean;
    wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and celebration again;
    let the bones you crushed rejoice once more.
10 Create a clean heart for me, God;
    put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me!
11 Please don’t throw me out of your presence;
    please don’t take your holy spirit away from me.                                                                                Amen.
Reading- Matthew 10: 1-7
He called his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to throw them out and to heal every disease and every sickness. Here are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon, who is called Peter; and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee; and John his brother; Philip; and Bartholomew; Thomas; and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus; and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot; and Judas, who betrayed Jesus.
Jesus sent these twelve out and commanded them, “Don’t go among the Gentiles or into a Samaritan city. Go instead to the lost sheep, the people of Israel. As you go, make this announcement: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’
after scripture-
For the word of God in scripture, for the word of God among us, for the word of God within us, 
All- Thanks be to God.

Reading- Matthew 28: 16-20
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshipped him, but some doubted. 18 Jesus came near and spoke to them, “I’ve received all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. Look, I myself will be with you every day until the end of this present age.”
For the word of God in scripture, for the word of God among us, for the word of God within us, 
All- Thanks be to God.
