Help us help our community by giving online

We have activated our online giving system and we hope that you will use the button below to access the Online Giving page.  Because we are obligated to provide a record of your donations you will need to register for this online service and set the parameters for your account.  We are hoping that you will take advantage of this service especially while we are practicing “social distancing”.  You can choose from credit and debit cards, ACH direct withdrawal and text messaging.  All of these services require a small fee.  Please help us get as much of your donation to St Paul’s as possible by using the ACH method if you can (it has the lowest fees) and/or agreeing to pay the extra fee involved.  This will mean so very much to our mission programs.  If you need help please contact us at: Online Giving Help

19th Sunday after Pentecost


 Prelude                                                                                                Lynn Brandvold


*Call to Worship

Come, let us bow before the holy One.
Come, let us confess God’s might.
Come, let us feel God’s mercy.
Come, let us live in God’s light.
As God’s people, we lift our voices in praise.
Glory to you, gracious and loving God!

*Hymn                                   Great is Thy Faithfulness                               UMH #140

  1. Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
    There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
    Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
    As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

  1. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
    Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
    Join with all nature in manifold witness
    To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love. Refrain
  2. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
    Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
    Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow—
    Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! Refrain

Prayer for Illumination

God of all ages, in your sight nations rise and fall, and pass through times of peril. Now when our land is troubled, be near to judge and save. May leaders be led by your wisdom; may they search your will and see it clearly. If we have turned from your way, reverse our ways and help us to repent. Give us your light and your truth, let them guide us; through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of this world, and our Savior. Amen.

Scripture Reading                           Psalm 106:1-6, 19-23                      Gloria Tacker


Prayers of the People                                                                Lord, hear our prayers

*Prayer of Confession

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the way of peace. Come into the brokenness of our lives and our land with you healing love. Help us to be willing to bow before you in true repentance, and to bow to one another in real forgiveness. By the fire of your Holy Spirit, melt our hard hearts and consume the pride and prejudice which separate us. Fill us, O Lord, with your perfect love, which casts out our fear, and bind us together in that unity which you share with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.


Offering         Please place your gifts in the basket upon leaving the sanctuary.

Special Music                                                       Rev. Dr. Joe MacDonald, FUMC Belen


Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ

 Wouldn’t it be nice to hear from our St. Paul’s musicians? If you are a musician and would like to share a song, hymn, etc. with the congregation, there is a way to do this. We can post your musical offering to the website, on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. If you would be willing to share your talent with us, please let me and/or Lynn know. If the technical aspect of sharing online is daunting, our resident sound man, Steve Hunyady, has graciously offered to help. You may reach Steve at hunyady@gmail.com or 505-450-3239. I know that our congregation would love to see familiar faces.
I still have plenty of room for Front Porch or Zoom visits. If you would like to visit with me, please sign up at the blue box below. If you want to drop by the church on a Thursday for a few minutes, feel free to do so, but call me to make sure I am in the building. You may always reach me via email at pastor@spumc-socorro.org, or call  575-322-0528.
Stay safe. Wear your masks, wash your hands, and take care of yourselves. May your week be filled with love and joy.

Grace, peace and elbows,

Pastor Cazandra
