Our Second Drive-In Church Service & Food Drive – Sunday, June 7th, 10:00 am

You’re Invited!
Sunday, June 7 at 10 AM, at
Delafield Presbyterian Church

Join us for Our Second Drive-In Church Service!

Dear Friends,

You are invited to join Delafield Presbyterian Church and Kettle Moraine United Presbyterian Church for our second drive-in worship service! Come and be in the same space with your church family for a little while! Together and apart, we will pray, sing and celebrate the Lord’s Supper. But before you come, please take some time to review the following details carefully!

The church building will NOT be open. We do not have the necessary sanitation protocol in place in order to open our restrooms for public use. Though the service will be very short, it is best to make sure that you will be comfortable by using the restroom before leaving your home.

The parking lot will have every other space marked off with an X. You are asked to avoid parking on the X’s, as you will likely open your car window to hear during the service, and we want to maintain proper social distancing. When you park, make sure your car is facing the building, only this time leave your radio on during the service.
We will be broadcasting the service on channel 87.7 FM. Don’t worry, we made sure it is legal!

We are hoping to make our service as contact-free as possible. Therefore, we are encouraging everyone to bring their own bread (or crackers or pretzels or whatever else you might want to use for communion) and their own juice (or other beverage you might want to use for communion). Additionally, you’re encouraged to bring your own bulletin. You can do this by simply printing off this email, which contains the order of worship at the bottom! Should you forget your bulletin or communion elements, we will have them available, but it is safer for you to bring them from home.

We will take up an offering of food and/or monies at the end of this service. It will benefit the Hartland Food Pantry. Breakfast foods are highly valued there. If you could bring cereals, pancake mixes, coffee or any other breakfast non-perishables that would be greatly appreciated. You can also bring other food items as well, and if you would like to donate money that would be appreciated as well. Please make checks out to Delafield Presbyterian Church with “food pantry” written on the memo line, or drop some cash in our bucket! Remember, every little bit helps!

Remember: If you are at all uncomfortable joining us or you do not feel well, STAY AT HOME! I’m excited to see those of you who join us!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Nikki and Pastor Matt


ANNOUNCEMENTS: Pastor Nikki Blanks

OPENING PRAYER: Pastor Matt Lee: God, thank you for bringing us all here and letting us be together, even as we stay separated. We praise you that we are one in you, whether we are together or apart. We thank you for giving us all a part to play in your Kingdom and letting us all contribute to the work you are doing in our world. Empower us today, with tongues of fire and hearts of love. May we, as the body of Christ, be the best evidence of your love in all that we do and say. Enliven these moments of prayer and silence and song and scripture so that we may hear your word and also do it. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING: Pastor Nikki Blanks: Luke 9:10-17: On their return the apostles told Jesus all they had done. He took them with him and withdrew privately to a city called Bethsaida. When the crowds found out about it, they followed him; and he welcomed them, and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed to be cured. The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place.” But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish—unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.” For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” They did so and made them all sit down. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.

HYMN: Until All Are Fed Robin Wohlfeil, Pastor Nikki Blanks, Pastor Matt Lee: (The congregation is invited to join in singing the refrain of this song.)

Verse 1:
How long will we sing?
How long will we pray?
How long will we write and send?
How long will we bring?
How long will we stay?
How long will we make amends?

Until all are fed we cry out!
Until all on earth have bread.
Like the One who loves us
each and every one
we serve until all are fed.

Verse 2:
How long will we talk?
How long will we prod?
How long must we fret and hoard?
How long will will we walk
to tear down this facade?
How long, how long, oh Lord?


Verse 3:
How can we stand by
And fail to be aghast?
How long til we do what’s right?
How could we stand by
and choose a lesser fast?
How long til we see the light?


Verse 4
On the green, green grass
they gathered long ago
to hear what the Master said.
What they had, they shared–
some fishes and some loaves.
They served until all were fed!

Refrain 2x
Like the One who loves us
each and every one
we serve until all are fed.

Invitation to the Table: Friends, this is the joyful feast of the people of God. Scripture tells us that in God’s Kingdom, people will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south and all will feast together at Christ’s Table. This is Christ’s Table. It’s not my table. It’s not a Presbyterian table. It is Christ’s table and he is our host. Therefore, anyone who is hungry or thirsty is welcome here.

Great Thanksgiving: God, thank you for knowing what we need. Thank you for inviting us to come and receive it, and by this, be inspired to offer it to the world. Teach us to go and do likewise when we leave this place. It is good to cry out for the waters of justice to roll down, bringing heaven on earth, watering it with God’s will for love-soaked humanity since creation began. For God continues to stand with and for all people. New birth for creation broke forth upon us in Jesus. Your Spirit anointed him to preach good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, and to announce that the time had come when you would save your people. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and ate with sinners. In these acts of love and justice we see the birth of our call as Church to let the waters of justice roll, knowing we have been delivered from death through a covenant of water and the Spirit. In this moment, we remember all who suffer in our day and imagine how Jesus would respond to them. In this silence I invite you to call to mind and heart, remembering to God the people and places, known and unknown, that need our prayers, that so desperately need a place at our Table of Love. (Pause for People to silently name concerns)

Just as he said it that last night with his disciples, Jesus says to us “come, gather around my friends.” This common bread at our table is much more than it seems. This is the brokenness of the world and I feel it as my body. Whenever there is suffering, I suffer with you. I am broken for you. This common cup at our table is much more than it seems. The blood of innocent ones is too often shed at the hands of oppressors. Whenever there is suffering, I suffer with you. I am poured out for you. And so, we proclaim this truth once again: Death is part of life. Christ has died. But death will not have the last word. Christ has risen! And suffering will end. Christ will come again…and again and again, every time suffering is alleviated, comfort is given, food is offered, hope is restored.

Dear Lord, pour out your Holy Spirit on this body gathered here and on our union with each other and with these gifts of bread and cup. May we become your body for the sake of a world where justice rolls down like an ever-flowing stream. We ask these things in the name of our brother and table-mate Jesus, the one who taught us to pray, saying…

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.

Communion of the People:

Prayer After Communion:

Thank you, God, that through Word and Sacrament, you give us your Son, true bread from heaven and food of eternal life. We are so grateful to you that we ask you to help us make our everyday living reflect our thanks. Amen.
