READING FROM PSALMS, PSALM 66:8-20
8    Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be 
      heard:
9    he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10  For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11  You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
12  You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire
      and water, 
      but you brought us to a place of abundance.
13  I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my
      vows to you —
14  vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in
      trouble.
15  I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I 
      will offer bulls and goats.
16  Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what 
      he has done for me.
17  I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my
      tongue.
18  If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have
      listened:
19  but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
20  Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or
      withheld his love from me!
GOSPEL READING, JOHN 14:15-21

 

15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever — 17 the Spirit of truth.  The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him.  But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.  18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.  19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me.  Because I live, you also will live.  20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.  21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.  The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF
When Jesus was asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”  “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’ (Mark 12:28b-3, NIV2011).
Caution: The COVID-19 virus is still here.
Online worship services will continue when we reopen. Online worship services were part of our strategy to reach Henry County before the pandemic arrived and will continue to be one of the ways we seek to love people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
Love your neighbor as yourself actions 
before coming to church:
Stay home if you are not healthy.
Stay home if you have health issues which if complicated by COVID-19 could lead to death, such as hypertension, diabetes, or COPD/emphysema.
Secure a mask for each family member.
Love your neighbor as yourself actions
in the building:
WEAR A MASK WHILE AT CHURCH.
Maintain a 6-foot separation from non-family members.
Keep your children with you in worship, no nursery provided.
Leave the building for mission at the usher’s direction.
Love your neighbor as yourself 
common sense actions:
If you are not comfortable with the risk of exposure, stay home.
If you are not comfortable with the guidelines, stay home.
Worship will continue to be available on demand through the church website: firstbaptistclinton.church, the church app, and FaceBook for those who choose to stay home.
Love your neighbor as yourself
things to remember:
The coronavirus is still here and continues to be a threat.
Our guidelines are for the month of May, but loving your neighbor as yourself is a permanent commandment.
Based on Henry County Health Center Guidelines and the social distancing requirement worship services will be limited to 100 .people plus the Worship and Tech Teams.
