Worship at St. Helena United Methodist Church

Worship every Sunday

Streaming live on YouTube

every Sunday at 10 a.m.

 Pastor Burke preaching

Wherever we are in our spiritual journey,we intend to come into closer relationship with God and with each other. God's presence awakens our hearts, and informs our lives, so that we are grounded by divine grace.

Our church is a place where we practice living in faith, supporting each other so that with time we become the beloved community. 

For when we awaken our soul, God is brought into the world.

Contemplative Prayer - ...and the Table will be Wide 

__Jan Richardson

Call to Worship -

Generous God, for the abundance blessings you bring
day by day and year by year,

We give you our thanks.

For the simple pleasures of life: for harvests, for fellowship,
for family, and friends,

We give you our thanks.

For food to nourish body and spirit,
For homes that shelter, nurture and welcome

We give you our thanks.

With music that speaks your everlasting goodness,
With prayers for understanding and peace,

We worship you with joy.

With time given in service, dedicated to church & community,
With years committed to deepening our love of God,

We worship you with joy.

With gifts to reach farther than we can manage ourselves,
With holy days to celebrate your goodness and grace,

We worship you, God, with grateful hearts and joyful spirit.  Hallelujah and Amen.


Sing - Praise To the Lord, the Almighty, #139, verses 1, 3, & 4


Unison Prayer  

O God, early in the morning I cry to you. Help me to pray    and concentrate my thoughts on you: I cannot do this alone. In me there is darkness, but with you there is light; I am lonely, but you do not leave me; I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help; I am restless, but with you there is peace. In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience; I do not understand your ways, but you know the way for me. Restore me to your grace, and enable me to live now, that I may answer before you and before me. Lord, whatever this day may bring, Your name be praised, Amen.
