Calls To Worship
Adapted from Psalm 27:1-2; 4-5
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me
to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Stuart Strachan Jr.
Adapted from Psalm 103
Leader: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all His benefits —
People: As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear Him. For He knows how we were made; He remembers that we are dust. As for mortals, their days are like grass; they flourish like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.
Leader: But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep His covenant and remember to do His commandments. Let us bless the Lord, with all we have within us, let us bless His holy name.
Adapted from Matthew 6:25-33
Jesus says, “Therefore, I tell you
Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or wear.
Is not life more than food or clothes?
Look at the birds of the air. They do not sew or reap or store up in barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not more valuable than they?
Can one of you, by worrying, add a single hour to your life?
But seek first, God’s kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.”
We surrender our worries for tomorrow to you as we worship you today.

Pastor: God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
All: His love endures forever
Pastor: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
All: His love endures forever.
Pastor: Let us worship God.
