Welcome

Silent Preparation

The Call to Worship: (responsively)
L:   Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to Your name
be the glory, because of Your love and faithfulness.
P:   Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him.
L:   The Lord remembers us and will bless us: He will
bless the house of Israel, He will bless the house of Aaron,
P:   He will bless those who fear the Lord – small and
great alike.  May the Lord make you increase,
both you and your children.
L:   It is not the dead who praise the Lord, those who
go down to silence;
P:   it is we who extol the Lord, both now and
forevermore.  Praise the Lord.
