March 4th Service

Third Sunday in Lent

Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “My Life is in You, Lord” SUMH #2032


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: We stand in the need of the presence of God.
All: ​Our lives can so easily become corrupted by our own greed.
One: But the Lord has heard our cries and calls us forward on​​this journey.
All: ​Lord guide our steps.
One: Come, let us worship God who is always with us.
All: ​Let us open our hearts to the healing, restoring love of God. Amen.
