Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into His presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, He is God!
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
and His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him; bless His name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
and His faithfulness to all generations.—Psalm 100

“Breathe on Me Breath of God”


2 Peter 3:1-9, 14-18

This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God!

Reminders of the Spirit



“Wonderful, Merciful Saviour”

Lord we give you today what is already yours.
You provide so much for us, blessings pressed down,
shaken together, running over.
Thank you for giving us the ability to give,
and cheerful hearts to do it. Amen.

“In the Bulb”
