O God, Host of the festival table,
you have prepared the passover lamb,
and you have broken bread
     with the disciples.
We praise you for all the food
you have served to us and to all the world.
And now, O God, servant at our table,
teach us to serve one another.
Make us willing to wash the feet
of the world,
and to welcome all people at our table;
through Christ our Lord.

In response to the recent Health Advisory issued by Peoria City/County Health Department describing rising levels of COVID cases and concerns, the planned outdoor worship service has been cancelled. Worship will still take place live at 6pm, but with worship leadership only. It will be recorded and available for viewing by 8am on Sunday, July 26.
This decision is not taken lightly but very seriously as we strive to follow health officials recommendations and cautions. We do this because we love one another and want what’s best for one another. In this time of pandemic, that means refraining from indoor as well as outdoor gatherings of larger sized groups.

The drive by farewell for Kristen will still take place on Sunday beginning at 10:30am as we will remain in our cars. Thank you for your cooperation.
