Welcome and Announcements
Praise Song “Into My Heart” SUMH #2160
In this place, among these people,
God is worshipped, God is praised.
We have seen the signs and wonders;
the lost are found here, the dead are raised.
We are living the Gospel story;
lives are changed and mountains moved.
Won’t you come and work among us?
You are welcomed, you are loved.
*Call to Worship
One: Our help is in the name of the Lord,
All: We belong to God.
One: When we feel overwhelmed,
All: God is on our side.
One: When we are afraid,
All: God will keep us safe.
One: Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven andearth.
All: Blessed be the Lord!
