WELCOME & NOTICES Bruce
GOD CALLS US TO WORSHIP from Psalm 121
We lift up our eyes to the hills— from where will our help come?
Our help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let our foot be moved; he who keeps us will not slumber.
He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is our keeper; the Lord is our shade at our right hand.
The sun shall not strike us by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep us from all evil; he will keep our life.
The Lord will keep our going out and our coming in from this time on and forevermore.
