Call to Worship

Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth. We glorify our God with songs of thanksgiving and joy. God has done great things for us, filling us with grace. God fed our ancestors in the wilderness, God clothes us with hope. We will offer our hearts to God, always saying, 'Thank you!' to the One who loves us. We will sing our praises, shouting of God's presence in our lives.

Hymn 127 O worship the King, all glorious above

Responsive Psalm Reading Psalm 100

Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; serve the Lord with gladness and come into the divine presence with a song. Know this: the Lord, the Lord, is God; the One made us and to whom we belong; we are God’s people, the sheep of God’s pasture. Enter the gates of the Lord with thanksgiving; go into these courts with praise; give thanks to God and call upon the name of the Lord. For the Lord is good, whose steadfast love is everlasting; and whose faithfulness endures from age to age.

Hymn 710 ‘I have a dream’, a man once said,


The Creator of heaven and earth sends us out,

may we go to being help to all around us.

The Bringer of grace sends us out,

may we go to offer hope and healing to the broken.

The Spirit of peace sends us out,

may we go to bring reconciliation in all the broken places.
