Welcome & Announcements

The Call to Worship:                  Psalm 150
Praise God in his holy place,
     Praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his powerful deeds,
     Praise his surpassing greatness.
O praise him with sound of trumpet,
     Praise him with lute and harp.
Praise him with timbrel and dance,
     Praise him with strings and pipes.
O praise him with resounding cymbals,
     Praise him with clashing of cymbals.
Let everything that lives and breathes give praise to the Lord.

 Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
Grant us peace, perfect, peace, Courage in every endeavour.
Open your eyes and see his face, Know his grace forever.
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
