Taste and see that the Lord is good. God’s steadfast love endures forever.

CALL TO WORSHIP  (Psalm 34)

Debbie Young - Liturgist

Taste and see that the Lord is good. God’s steadfast love endures forever. What are you hungry for this morning?

As we gather to worship, we acknowledge as a community that we are hungry for the goodness of God and in need of God’s love and understanding. Let’s worship the Lord together.

BLESSING OF THE OFFERING  (Unison)

Mighty God, just as you restore sight to the blind and benevolence to the afflicted, use these offerings to provide refuge for the lost and mercy for those who suffer.

May our gifts find those who cry out in their need and who seek you with their whole hearts. We ask this in Jesus’s name, the name above all names. Amen.
