WE GATHER TO WORSHIP OUR GOD
Welcome and Call to Worship Psalm 105
O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples.
Sing to God, sing praises to him; tell of all God’s wonderful works.
Glory in God’s holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and his strength; seek God’s presence continually.
Remember the wonderful works he has done, his miracles, and the wisdom God has uttered.
We will praise our God and give thanks forever.

Even now, as history unfolds in ways we know only in part,

The confidence that the Lord is faithful gives meaning to our days and hope to our years.
The future is secure, for our world belongs to God.
