Welcome and Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship
This is the day that you have made, Lord.
Help us to rejoice in it and be glad!
Remind us of the privileges we enjoy as your people:
to come to you in these moments,
to confess our sins,
to receive forgiveness and give it,
to pray and sing and listen,
to renew our fainting spirits,
to rest in all your promises.
Open our eyes to see you, Lord.
Open our ears to hear your Word.
Visit us through your Holy Spirit,
and help us to celebrate our faith. Amen.

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

September Benevolence – Hurricane Harvey Relief
Our church council, following the encouragement of ABCUSA’s General Secretary, has agreed to shift our special mission focus for September to Hurricane relief through One Great Hour of Sharing. As the situation unfolds, and long-term rebuilding efforts get under way, we’ll begin exploring how we partner with American Baptist Home Mission Societies to be part of the effort. Thank you all for your support. I know Central will go above and beyond, as we always do.
