A Message from Pastor Lori
In order to exercise abundant caution and do no harm to our brothers and sisters, especially those who are most vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus, we are restricting our Sunday worship to live-stream only for the foreseeable future. A link to the ZOOM meeting will be emailed to you on Sunday morning. Please contact Pastor Lori if you do not receive the email invitation. We are not able to share the link on this website for security reasons.
Third Sunday of Easter
Welcome to live-streamed and zoom worship at NUMC! We are glad you are with us!
“The Sound of Silence”
~ Mr. Arthur Samuelson/ Rev Sue Klein ~
GREETING & CENTERING WORDS
~ Pastor Lori Miller ~
If you have a milestone to share, please “raise your hand” and we’ll celebrate with you!
If you are a “visitor” we hope you’ll do the same!
“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”
Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
Mortals, join the mighty chorus which the morning stars began;
Love divine is reigning o’er us, binding all within its span.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music leads us sunward, in the triumph song of life.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever.
~ Karan Goodhue ~
“You Are Enough”

PRAYER OF DEDICATION
“Christ Is Risen”
Christ is risen! Shout Hosanna! Celebrate this day of days.
Christ is risen! Hush in wonder, all creation is amazed.
In the desert all-surrounding, see a spreading tree has grown.
Healing leaves of grace abounding bring a taste of love unknown.
Christ is risen! Raise your spirits from the caverns of despair.
Walk in gladness in the morning. See what love can do and dare.
Drink the wine of resurrection, not a servant, but a friend;
Jesus is our strong companion. Joy and peace shall never end!
“The Water Is Wide”
