Praise Song SUMH #2050
“Mothering God, You Gave me Birth”


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: Delighting in God’s ways,
All: ​We are like trees planted by streams of water.
One: ​Abiding in Christ’s mercy,
All: ​We are like children sheltered against the storm.
One: ​Filled with the Holy Spirit,
All: ​We are one in Christ.
One: ​Come! Let all who draw breath worship the Lord.

A huge thank you to all our youth who so graciously stepped up to the plate to help lead our Mother’s Day service. You are such a blessing to this congregation. We are proud of you and count you as a huge part of our church family.

Don’t forget our grill-out next Sunday after the church service to help raise money for our Nigerian Well Project. No need to bring any food, it is being taken care of by our Missions Committee. Come join in the fun.
