CALL TO WORSHIP: (Read aloud prayerfully.)

A Psalm for the thank offering. (Psalm 100)
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into God’s presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, who made us, is God.
We are the Lord’s; we are the people of God,
the sheep of God’s pasture.
Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, and God’s courts with praise!
Give thanks and bless God’s name!
For the Lord is good;
God’s steadfast love endures for ever;
God’s faithfulness to all generations

A TIME OF PRAYER (Testimonies, Joys & Concerns)
Please pray for yourself and your neighbors, lifting up your needs to God while giving thanks for answered prayer.

The Lord’s Prayer: Our Father, who art in heaven; hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
