Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “They’ll Know We Are Christians” SUMH #2223

Prelude

*Processional
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: God’s mercy floods over us.
All: ​Lord, wash me clean of the pain in my life.
One: God’s love pours into us.
All: ​Lord, pour your love into every pore of my being.
One: Let the love and mercy of God reign in your heart today.
All: ​Be with me, Lord, and guide my life. AMEN.
