Our music team is on vacation for the next few weeks, so we are using music that was previously recorded. The hymns are different than what is in the in-person bulletin, and we are enjoying music that Barbara recorded last year.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we
forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
