Summer Sundays. You are invited to join the members and friends of Trinity Palm Coast for Outdoor Vespers on Sunday, August 30th at 6:30PM. Vespers, by definition, is an informal worshipful gathering. We will observe social distancing and all are asked to wear a Mask in consideration of others. We also ask that you bring your own chair. We look forward to seeing many of you and worshipping with you!

Hymn books are available to borrow if you would like to use at home to follow along with your bulletin, use with online worship, or bring it to Outdoor Vespers. The Hymn books can be checked out in the Church office, Monday-Thursday from 9am-12pm.

A new Midweek Bible Study video is available online each week. Visit our website or Facebook page to view a video from Rev. Beebe. The current Bible Study Series uses: “The Disciple Making Church” by Glenn McDonald. A new video will be released each Thursday and will be available to watch whenever it is convenient for you. We hope you will join us!

Preparation for Worship

Let us join together now and prepare for worship.

Dear Family of God – these are trying days in God’s beloved world. As Christ’s Church, sustained by the Holy Spirit, we have gifts and a call by which to care for one another and our neighbors. Worship in which we encounter our living God and know ourselves connected to the body continues. So this day we expand our worship into our homes, knowing that as we read the same Scriptures, and share in the same prayers, we are held together on this Sunday morning. Let us prepare our hearts and minds to worship the living Lord.

Prelude “You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)”

Heasuk Che, organist.

Call to Worship

Joan Zicht, lay reader.


Let us worship the One who nourishes us,
who satisfies us in parched places and makes our bones strong.
Let us worship the One who calls us,
who leads us to compassion and draws us nearer to justice.
Let us worship the One who creates us,
who forms and reforms us in the image of our maker.

Hymn #817 “We Walk by Faith and Not by Sight”

Julie Pearson, soprano, accompanied by Heasuk Che, pianist.

Dunlap’s Creek

1 We walk by faith and not by sight;
with gracious words draw near,
O Christ, who spoke as none e’er spoke:
“My peace be with you here.”
2 2 We may not touch your hands and side,
nor follow where you trod;
but in your promise we rejoice
and cry, “My Lord and God!”
3 Help then, O Lord, our unbelief;
and may our faith abound
to call on you when you are near
and seek where you are found.
4 And when our life of faith is done,
in realms of clearer light
may we behold you as you are,
with full and endless sight.

Prayer of the Day

Joan Zicht, lay reader.

God of mercy; Help us to forgive, as you have forgiven us. Help us to trust you, even when hope is failing. Help us to take up our cross daily and follow you in your redeeming work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

Prayer of Confession

You are faithful, O God of mercy, from everlasting to everlasting.
Forgive us when our faith withers, our passion grows weary, and our focus wanes.
You are loving, O God of mercy, from everlasting to everlasting.
Forgive us when our love is too shallow,
our compassion too slow, our status too important.
You are the creator, O God of mercy, from everlasting to everlasting.
Forgive us when we fear that you have stopped creating,
stopped calling, stopped reforming.
Convict us, enliven us, and lead us to know the depth of your steadfast love.

(Silence for Reflection)

Declaration of Forgiveness

The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting.
I declare to you, in the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
May the God of mercy, who forgives us all our sins, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the
power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

Rev Dr Jeffrey Beebe

Gloria Patri (Hymn #581)

Heasuk Che, organist.


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen, Amen.

Gospel Reading

Joan Zicht, lay reader.

John 13:10-17 – latter portion of Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet. Listen for God speaking to you today.

Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Anthem “The Steadfast Love of the Lord”

Julie Pearson, soprano, accompanied by Heasuk Che, pianist.


Children’s Sermon

Brooke Tucker, Director of Faith Formation.

Meditation “A Huge Leap”

Rev Dr Jeffrey Beebe

Affirmation of Faith (Apostle’s Creed)

Joan Zicht, lay reader

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayers of the People

Good and Gracious God,
Your Son, Jesus Christ, invites all people to follow him and become his disciples.
Touch our hearts, enlighten our minds, and stir our spirit.
Help us daily to take up our cross and follow him; by living his Word
and proclaiming his Good News to those around us.
May our faith in you increase, may our hunger for the Gospel intensify,
and may our parish be strengthened as we learn to love one another as he has loved us.
For this we pray, Amen.

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Hymn #54 “Make a Joyful Noise to God!”

Julie Pearson, soprano, accompanied by Heasuk Che, pianist.
1 Make a joyful noise to God! All creation sings your praise!
Great your wonders here displayed, unexcelled throughout our days.
Glorious is your sacred name, ages old, yet still the same.
2 Come and see what God has done, great the blessings to the just:
Walked the chosen through the sea, brought their enemies to dust.
Let us lift a thankful voice for God’s mercies, and rejoice!
3 Bless the Lord, our refuge sure; let our songs of praise be heard!
By whose justice, we are tried; by whose grace, our guilt deferred.
When our life’s sure end shall come, bring us to your heavenly home.


Rev Dr Jeffrey Beebe

Congregational Response (#306)

Heasuk Che, organist.

Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love.
The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above.


Please continue to give your offering.

God calls us to give all of who we are, and all of what we have to be used in and thru the Church. So let us present our lives. Let us present our gifts unto God.
