Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “Lord I Lift Your Name on High” SUMH #2088


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: Christ is born.
All: ​Praise the Lord!

All: ​Praise the Lord!
