Welcome and Announcements


*Call to Worship 

Leader:  Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

People:  How beautiful it is when we sing our praises to the beautiful God, for praise makes you lovely before him and brings him great delight!

L:  How great is our God!

P:  There’s absolutely nothing his power cannot accomplish, and he has infinite understanding of everything.

L:  Yahweh supports and strengthens the humble, but the ungodly will be brought down to the dust.

P:  Sing out with songs of thanksgiving to the Lord!  Let’s sing our praises with melodies overflowing!


 *Opening Hymn   “He Is Exalted” – TFWS 2070


*Opening Prayer

King of Kings, we love to sing praises to You.  We rejoice in You, Our Maker. We exalt You, Our King.  We praise Your name, for You delight in Your people.  We do not deserve to come into the presence of the Holy God of the Universe, but You have crowned the humble with victory, You have lifted up those who are bowed down, You have clothed us in Your righteousness.  We come before You with confidence, not based on ourselves, but based on Your love.  Let Your praises be in our hearts and on our lips.  Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.  Amen.


Children’s Time

Jesus loves me, this I know.  For the Bible tells me so.  Little ones to Him belong.  They are weak, but He is strong.  Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me.  Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.
