Worship 6 14 2020

Link to follow

From our God who was, is and will ever be, welcome to worship this Lord鈥檚 Day from Eastminster Presbyterian Church, Dallas, Texas. If you are watching for the first time or joining us again, may wherever you are be filled with the Spirit鈥檚 power of community with one another.

路 As we continue to remember one another in prayer, we add these requests: thanksgiving for the healing taking place for Bettye Clark鈥檚 grand daughter, Katherine, following surgery for a condition called Chiari which causes brain tissue to extend into the spinal canal; prayers for Rick Brooks, pastor of St. Mark who suffered a concussion from a fall; and prayers for Drew Travis, pastor of FPC, Granbury and the keynote speaker for this year鈥檚 virtual Synod Youth Workshop. Drew is the brother of former pastor of FPC, Ft. Worth, Karl Travis who is now in hospice care. Also, Drew鈥檚 son, Dylan, has been in and out of the hospital for unexplained swelling of the brain.

路 Continuing to monitor the trends for COVID 19 in Dallas County, we are working behind the scenes to ensure that once we can enter our sanctuary again, it will be with the confidence of safety and health for all. The Re-Entry Task Force meets weekly, and in addition to monitoring weekly information, is drafting a plan of re-entry for presentation to the Session.

路 We are venturing out via Zoom and a small group gathering to resume our Sunday School classes. If you are interested in joining any of these classes, please email Sherry at [email protected] and you will be added to the distribution lists.

*The Gleaners Class will begin virtually meeting this Sunday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. They will continue to use The Present Word curriculum. This first meeting will be a mixture of 鈥渕eet and greet鈥 and a synopsis of the lessons from June 7 and 14. Lesson books have been mailed to the current active class roll; however, if you wish to receive a book, let Sherry know. Minus a book this week, we invite you to read Proverbs 1 and 2 and Genesis 39 in preparation for class.

*The class led by Blair Garrett will also resume this Sunday, running from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The class will continue studying the book of Mark and ask that in preparation for class this week you read chapters 13 and 14. If you are new to the class or need a refresher, you are invited to read the first 12 chapters.

*The Searchers Class is meeting in person, practicing social distancing and other safety measures. They are gathering at 9:30 a.m. in the backyard of Tom and Michele Pappas. They are exploring the history of heaven and hell, using scripture, discussion, video and printed materials. You are invited to remain after class to watch the worship service virtually.

路 We also invite you to visit our website at www.eastminsterdallas.org or go to our page to find information about these offerings. As other activities and events can resume we will post them. Always remember, though, that even while we are apart one from another, the Lord is between us, blessing and keeping us.

路 Fred, Philis, and Chandra, your work and support for this week鈥檚 service has brought joy and peace to my heart. As you will remember, at the beginning of 2020, we began a new model of inviting participation in worship leadership and the response was amazing. Across the ages, many who had never ventured into leadership took a leap of faith and the variety of offerings blessed our worship. Then鈥OVID19 hit!

Virtual worship has been a HUGE learning curve for me, and I continue to be grateful for Fred鈥檚 knowledge and guidance as he has helped me and many of us navigate these new waters. But, it is now time again for a leap of faith. Often times the responses I receive about worship leadership revolve around two issues: uncertainty about how to navigate the technology and 鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to be seen or heard on video!鈥

Again, a huge uncomfortable learning curve for me also. I understand your concerns. So, I am once again asking for that leap of faith. You will not be left without help regarding technology and anytime we have the opportunity to see a face or hear a voice of a brother or sister in Christ, we are blessed. If you are interested in, and willing to participate in virtual worship leadership, let me know.

On this and every day, may the Lord bless and keep us. May the Lord鈥檚 face shine upon us. May the Lord be gracious to us and give us peace. Amen

Pastor Sherry

Worship June 7 2020


[06/07/20]   Dear family and friends,

This day, wherever you gather to worship, you stand on holy ground because our Lord stands with you. And with the Lord there is peace. So, may the peace of our Lord be with you!

We celebrate Holy Communion today, so I invite you to prepare not only bread and cup, but prepare your hearts with prayer and reflection and thanksgiving to God for this meal that asks of us to remember the sacrifice of our Lord, and to look forward to his coming again.

This week my heart is grateful for Lewis, Vicki and AbbyGayle as they so beautifully helped with worship. For Chandra鈥檚 continued keeping us informed and for the above and beyond ways that Fred continues to make worship move from words on a page to images that fill our spirits鈥hank you!

Please keep Bruce Turner and the family in your prayers as his sister, Cissy, has tested positive for COVID19.

Kathy Kreger asks for prayer for her co-worker, Charlotte Whitted who lost her father-in-law this week and is traveling to Tennessee for funeral arrangements.

May the family and friends of George Floyd, the families and friends of all of us鈥ulti-colored children created by God be comforted with the peace that our Lord can give, and may we all seek to live by these words from Romans: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Hear our prayer: Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us all around peace of mind, body, soul, and spirit. Heal us. Guide our paths through life that we may be at peace with one another. Let your angels of peace go ahead of us all when we go out and stay by our sides when we return. In Jesus' name. Amen.

High Wind and Fire

On that first Pentecost the wind and the fire were only hints of what was about to happen. Frightened folk gulped a couple of times and spoke about Jesus. They said, 鈥淭his Jesus whom you crucified, God has named Lord and Messiah by raising him from the dead." They said, 鈥淭he old barriers between Jew and Gentile, between men and women, between slave and free, don鈥檛 matter now.鈥 They said, 鈥淟et鈥檚 hit the road.鈥

The Spirit, who had patted chaos into shape and whispered in the ears of prophets and poets, began to pat sinners into shape and to speak clearly about forgiveness and love and community and freedom and joy. Not everyone got it, of course, but enough got it so that the world was never the same.

Dear friends in Christ, I pray that the Spirit will blow in and through us in ways that refresh our own spirits in new ways we never imagined!

I give thanksgiving to my niece, Ashley Herron, who helped lead worship with me this day. Ashley has been home from her assignment in Niger since March, and will be moving to Washington D.C. in the next few weeks to continue her work with Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture. My heart continues to be grateful for Fred and Chandra; and a heartfelt thank you to those serving on our Re-Entry Task Force and Session members who are keeping our physical health at the forefront of decisions, while trying to find ways to safely care for our spiritual health.

The Re-Entry Task Force sent recommendations to the Session regarding the subject of resuming in-house worship. The Session has acted upon those recommendations and you will be receiving a letter concerning this. Please be mindful and prayerful that all decisions we make are done with the greatest prayer and discernment AND with the most current guidelines and research available at the time of the decision. You and I are in living in a world where information is changing rapidly, so please bear with us as we navigate the ways that bring about the safest possibilities for gathering again.

Until that time, the Lord is between you and me, blessing and keeping us. May we offer our thanksgiving to our God who was, is and will ever be!

Pastor Sherry











[05/24/20]   I am feeling like many of you, I suspect. I need the beauty of God鈥檚 creation and some deeps breaths of fresh air. I am taking a chance doing the video from the backyard. Our air-conditioner cycles on an off. My next door neighbor opens and closes his garage door. The dogs, mine included, may bark from time to time. For any of those noises, I apologize and pray that they are not a distraction, but instead a reminder that we will again feel comfortable moving about this beautiful world God has given us.

Thank you Fred, Chandra, Katie and Gary for sharing worship leadership this week! All who lead and make worship happen each week remind of that we remain the one Body of Christ, the church!

The Re-Entry Task Force has been working and will soon have recommendations for the Session to consider regarding in-person worship. As soon as those have discussed and agreed upon, we will be sending information to you. For now, continue to pray as we all seek the guidance and the wisdom of the Spirit for the safety of all persons.

Also, a survey will be coming your way soon regarding your interests in virtual small groups that might engage in Bible study, prayer, fellowship, book studies, or actually group topic as varied as you.

Our prayers continue for our own members who are facing issues of health and hardship. You received the latest prayer joys and concerns from me earlier in the week, and at this point, I have not been told of others.

Finally, we offer a pray of protection and thanksgiving for all who have served or are serving in our armed forces, and yes, at this point that includes all front line workers who are keeping us as safe as possible during this time. Lord, hear our prayer:
Dear God,

We thank you for the freedom you have given to us, and for the price that was paid by Christ so that we could live free. We thank you for the men and women who have fought, and continue to fight, so courageously for our nation and world. We ask for your covering and blessing over them and their families. We pray that you would be gracious and encircle them with your peace. We pray for your great favor and goodness to be evident in their lives.

Please be with all those who wear the uniform, who serve our communities and nation every single day. Those uniforms come in our time, Lord, not just with military emblems, but with the symbols of all who are working on the front lines to care and protect us. We ask that you provide your extra protection, that you would be their guiding force who leads the way, and their rear guard who keeps them safe from behind. We ask that you would draw them to yourself amidst the dangers they face in a dark world, for you are the Truth, you are the Way, you are the Light.

Help them to walk wisely. Help them to be men and women of prayer, realizing that this is where their greatest help comes from. Help them to stay united and strong, bold and resolute, determined and unwavering. Bless their families. Bless those they love.

Thank you that in our nation today, we are free to worship. We are free to pray. We are free to read your Word. We are free to speak. We are free to share. For this, we are incredibly grateful. Yet, we understand how quickly these freedoms can be taken away. Help us to stand strong in you and for your purposes. And from our local to world-wide leaders, we pray your Spirit of compassion, wisdom and discernment as we try, as you desire, to be united as one in your spirit and love. In the name of our Lord, we pray. Amen

The peace of Christ IS with us,
Pastor Sherry

Your Eastminster Family

Start Your Day with Jesus

I was glad when they said to me, 鈥淟et us go to the house of the LORD.鈥 Psalm 122: 1


Welcome to all who are worshiping with us at Eastminster Presbyterian this morning, the LORD鈥橲 DAY, as well as Mother鈥檚 Day, and senior Sunday recognition. In our dining room at home hangs a sign that reads, 鈥淗aving someplace to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing!鈥 At Eastminster, I truly believe you will find God鈥檚 home, God鈥檚 love, God鈥檚 family, and God鈥檚 blessing. We are a small community of faith committed to being Christ-like to one another, to our neighbors and to all persons God sends to cross our paths. We believe the power of the Holy Spirit helps transform our 鈥済uests鈥 in worship to 鈥渇riends in Christ.鈥 All are welcome and if you are searching for a place to call home with a community of faith, the hearts of the people of Eastminster say: Let the Spirit lead you home! Here you find Christ鈥檚 love! Here you find God鈥檚 family! Here you find the blessing of our Triune God: Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer!

Every now and then, I am convinced it is okay to be sinfully proud, so鈥ere I go! It never ceases to amaze me how faithful, talented, creative, compassionate, and fun the children, youth, and young adults of Eastminster are! And, that is also a cue for a shout out to the parents, grands, greats, and the congregation as a whole. You were charged with the spiritual growth of these children of God, and I believe the video service for May 10 will reveal you have 鈥渢rained them鈥 in wonderful and faith-filled ways!

I want to personally say thank you to Fred and Chandra who have walked every step of the videoing process since we began online services. Fred, thank you for your 鈥渁bove and beyond鈥 commitment to making our services as cohesive and worshipful as possible while we are apart.

And鈥o all who made this video a special blessing for us, with a great thank you to God, our gratitude! For the musical gifts of Jake, Sean, Kayla, and Ronnie鈥hat joy you bring to our hearts! To our littlest disciples, AbbyGayle, Hannah, Vivienne, and Molly, you give us reason to smile and have hope for the future and the future of Christ鈥檚 church! For our youth鈥yan and Mason so many things have changed in your lives these past few weeks, but your faith has not, and for that, thank you! Young adults鈥aura, Jacob, Daniel, Lilly, Karli, Sean, Jake, Kayla and Ronnie, you are the church and I couldn鈥檛 be more proud to be called your pastor; thank you for reminding us of the power of the Spirit within us!

For all who worship with us, may you feel the joy of the Spirit, and all other fruits gifted us!

God鈥檚 grace, my gratitude, Pastor Sherry
