Welcome & Announcements

The Call to Worship:
L: How manifold are the works of God!
In wisdom He made all things.
P: The earth is full of God’s creatures, the ocean too is filled
with life both great and small.
L: All of these look to God to give them their food in due season.  When God gives it, they gather it up and are filled with good things.  When He hides His face, they are dismayed.
P: When God sends forth His Spirit they are created, His breath brings life to them all.
All: I will sing to the Lord as long as I live.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen
