Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “God, How Can We Forgive” SUMH #2169


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: Sing praise to God who rescues us when we fall!
All: ​Sing praise to God who walks with us on our journeys!
One: Even though we fall, God lifts us and places us on paths of​peace.
All: ​Even though we stray, God finds us and brings us back to lives of hope.
One: Thanks be to God, whose love is continually with us.
All:​Praise be to God, whose mercy is over us all. Amen.
