Fall Worship Series: “All Our Days”
“Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” — Philippians 4:6
This fall we are devoting ourselves to prayer. To help us grow as people of prayer, we are providing everyone prayer beads and a prayer guide for this season and beyond. We hope this will help us all feel more connected to God and to one another as we devote ourselves to daily prayer.
Our theme song for this series and the source of the series’ title says:
You know my words before they’re said.
You know my need and I am fed.
You give me life.
You know my ways, my strength, my path, for all my days;
my strength, my path, for all my days.

New Worship Series for Easter Season
One of our hymns proclaims “Dance, then, wherever you may be; I am the Lord of the Dance, said he, and I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be, and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.”
Can you imagine Jesus saying these words to the still-confused-and-scared disciples during one of his post-resurrection appearances?
Even though Easter comes and we are called to live as “Easter people” with no fear of death, this is not always an easy thing for us to do, especially in times of great anxiety. Still, Jesus calls us to follow him in the dance of Easter. He will be our dance instructor.
During the Easter season we will “Dare to Dance Again.” We will dare to dance, even in the midst of fear and suffering. We will dare to dance an Easter dance of the promise of resurrection.
Join us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in person (currently up to 50 people) or on line.
Each of us is created a precious and holy vessel of embodied love. We have been through a difficult time since last Lent that has shattered our sense of wholeness–body, mind, and spirit–like a glass vessel
fractured into pieces. In this Lenten “season of recovery” for our
physical, communal, mental, intellectual, and environmental health, we will explore the healing narratives of Jesus that tell of divine
solidarity with human suffering and remind us that we can begin a journey toward making something beautiful from that which is
seemingly broken. Beach glass offers us a multifaceted symbol of this transformative process. Please join us to worship God on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. at www.facebook.com/denbighpres/videos. (We now
welcome up to 35 people for in-person worship service.) Please
register at www.denbighunitedpres.org under the “WORSHIP” page.

God Is Holding Your Life: A Journey of
Assurance for the New Year
As we embark on the New Year 2021, we continue our journey through a global pandemic. Even so, we continue to affirm and proclaim that God is holding our lives and that “the works of God’s hands are faithful and just.” (Psalm 111)
In our worship services, we will be exploring some of the Psalms. The Psalms help us to lament and to rejoice. They help us to confess and to ask for God to show up in our lives. They help us to be rooted and grounded in the
assurance that our faithful God holds us and never lets go.
Join us as we study and worship at 10:30 a.m. on line or in person (up to 25 people). Listed below are the scriptures and themes of our upcoming services:
“These Lives Are Precious”—Psalm 72
“Awe and Wonder”—Psalm 29
“Where Can I Go?”—Psalm 139
“In God Alone”—Psalm 62
“Whole Heart Hallelujah”—Psalm 111
“We Wait, We Hope, We Stay”—Psalm 147
“The Light Is Shining Forth”—Psalm 50
