Welcome and Announcements

Praise Song “Change My Heart, O God” SUMH #2152


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 to the Lord a new song. Let the mountains quake.
All: We worship a God of wonder.
One: Sing praises to our God. Let the musicians join the heavenly​chorus.
All: ​We worship a God of saving love.
One: Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth. Let the seas​​roar and the rivers clap their hands.
All: ​We worship a God of majesty and might
One: ​Come! Worship the Lord.
