Hi there, all Oceanview Family and Friends....

When: May 29, 2020 -  07:00 PM

May 24 2020 - Home Worship - The Seventh Sunday of Easter

Staying home is a form of loving your neighbor. Think about it, you may be staying home for your own health but in reality you then become less of a carrier to others that you might come in contact with. These days might get very lonely for some. Please be in prayer for those who live alone. Remember in your prayers those who do not have a home to stay in. Take this time to grow in your trust of God and not be anxious.

This is not live worship, it is a way to worship at your home in place of our worship gatherings. You see Oceanview family and staff sharing our gifts with each other. As we do this, we hope you will feel close to God who is near even though we are far apart. May God Bless you and Keep you.

L: Come, let us prepare ourselves for worship

Prayers of the People

Offer up your own prayer. Offer praise and thanksgiving to God. Share your worries and concerns with God. Pray for other people. Pray for people who are sick, lonely, and afraid. Pray for medical professionals, medical researchers, first responders, and community leaders who are working so hard to keep us well. Ask God to help you find creative ways to reach out to people and share God’s love via phone, card, email, or social media, etc.

Pastoral Prayer with Rev. Betty Kniss

Lord, in this season of growth, open our hearts to grow in your love. Help us to truly trust in your creative process in our lives. We look around and we see the beauty of your world, the blossoming flowers and plants, the growth of children, the joy of celebrations of graduations, of receiving new life. And we also see the sadness and sorrow that has invaded the world when systems of injustice and hatred lay claim to people’s lives. 

Prepare us, O Lord, to become ambassadors of peace and hope. Help us to place our trust in you, so that when we are serving others, they may come to know your abiding love and power. Give us courage and great joy as we serve you. AMEN.


Graduation Congratulations

To our Graduates... just a little 'something' from your family at Oceanview.


Special Song: Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)


Scripture: Matthew 8: 1-4 NIV

8 When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. 2 A man with leprosy[a] came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” 3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Go with God: A Blessing for Graduates

As your classes and grading are now complete, 

     may you strive toward excellence in all you do.

As the speeches conclude, 

     may your voices rise up to pronounce justice and peace in the world.

As the fanfares cease, 

     may you sing of joy, even in the dark and lonely places.

As the applause quiets, 

     may you celebrate and lift up those around you.

As you graduate today, 

     may your achievements grow and cause growth in your communities.

And may we all know of the overwhelming blessings of the One who created all things.
