How To Embrace Life
We are assembled as a people of God,
embracing the gift of life
The Call to Worship: (based on Psalm 31:1-5,15,16)
Come, worship the God Who is our refuge and our strength in times of weakness.
We trust God to lead and guide us always.
Like Jesus, we are confident to commit our spirit into Your hands, O God,
for You deliver us from our enemies and persecutors.
Let Your face shine upon us, O God, and may Your saving and steadfast love surround us
