Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “Give Thanks” SUMH #2036


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 give praise to our God who knew us before we had​breath.
All: ​We delight in the Lord who guides us still.
One: ​God, help us to live as you would have us live.
All: ​Give us obedient hearts.
One: ​As we gather today for worship, we know injustice rains down on your people.
All: ​Disturb us, God, so that we may act justly
One: As we celebrate this day, we know so many who suffer​​needlessly.
All: ​Use us, God, as your hands of mercy
One: As we move through our day, following our own agendas
All: Remind us, God, to walk humbly with you.
