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: ​Blessed be the Lord!
