Call to Worship
From a world of turmoil and uncertainty, we draw aside to worship the Living God
It is good to be together in your house, O Lord
To know that we belong
Here we’ve no need to pretend to be something we are not
You meet us just as we are
Lord, make this time in this place overflow in the love of Christ
Build us up as we follow the way of Jesus Christ
May we grow in faith, hope and love as the future unfolds,
Lord bless us in this time together.
Hymn 192 All my hope on God is founded

Hymn 606 Lord, you sometimes speak in wonders
Scripture Readings: Reader: Jimmy Hudson
Old Testament: Psalm 84: 1-7

Praise the God who reigns above;
praise the Son who lived below;
