Call to Worship
Let us acknowledge the company in which we meet: the church on earth and in heaven; the faithful who worshipped here before us;
the hundreds of thousands of every place and language who, on the Lord’s day, seek to set their lives within the atmosphere of renewing grace.
As we think of them, let us take deliberate encouragement from our unity with them all.

*Song of Thanksgiving – “Give Thanks” – #170
Give thanks with a grateful heart; Give thanks to the Holy One,

because of what the Lord has done for us. Give Thanks! (repeat)

June Benevolence: One Great Hour of SharingOne Great Hour of Sharing is an offering that makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in more than 100 countries, including the United States and Canada. In the 1990s, receipts have exceeded $20 million annually. While specific allocations differ in each denomination, all use their One Great Hour of Sharing funds to make possible disaster relief, refugee assistance, development aid and more.
