Call to Worship (Psam 24:1-2)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And with you also.
Leader: The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
People: For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
A Psalm of Worship-- (in unison)
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. .
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Jesus said, ‘Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than clothes? (Matthew 6:25). These words of Jesus are a comfort to us. We should rest our souls in God alone. Welcome.
