Peace Mennonite Home-Based Worship: February 14, 2021

Welcome to worship with Peace Mennonite Church. If this is your first time worshiping with us, please watch this welcome video from our pastor. You can find our church announcements here.

Whether you are new to Peace or a regular participant, we are glad you are with us in worship and invite you to join us for our Zoom discussion and prayer time at 11:00 each Sunday morning.  Simply click this link. 

Thanks to everyone who is helping to keep our Little Free Pantry full! We cannot leave items in cans or glass jars out in these freezing temperatures, but there are plenty of food, toiletry, and clothing items that we can make available to the neighborhood. Contact Katie Hobson (February volunteer) or Barbara Yoder (coordinator) with any questions. (Photo credit: Becky Janzen)

Prelude: Happy Valentine’s Day! “The Love of God,” Voices Together #162
From our friends at Raleigh Mennonite Church

Welcome:

Spiritual Practices for Lent (and Beyond)
Lenten Devotional

Opening Scripture: Psalm 36:5-10

Call to Worship:

The mountain top
the shining face
the glowing clothes
the voice of God speaking from the cloud
the commandments etched in stone
Sometimes God shows up
in ways we cannot deny
in a place we can go
a light we can see
a voice we can hear
a stone we can touch
Sometimes
Sometimes
there is the veil
the overshadowing, terrifying cloud
the questions
the appearing and disappearing
the excitement
the wondering
the silence
Sometimes God shows up
in ways we cannot deny.
Always God shows up
somehow.
So we have shown up
here, now
May God give us eyes to see.
