May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all

WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP       (from Psalm 36)

Leader:           Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

All:                 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.

Leader:           How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

All:                 They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.

Leader:           For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. For the Lord has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation.

HYMN 69        Just as a father shows his love

O God of steadfast love,

at the wedding in Cana
your Son Jesus turned water into wine,

Transform our hearts by your Spirit,

to show forth the light of your love
as one body in Christ.
