Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘some assembly required’ worship. Blessings to you as you take the time to worship today.

Our first hymn this morning is #400, Spirit of the Living God. You will notice that Eric is playing an introduction to the hymns this week. So wait until he pauses before you start singing along.

Until tomorrow, dear friends, keep on hoping in God whose mercy and love never fails!
