Call to Worship

Let us worship God, our light and our salvation.

The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.

We desire to live in God’s house

and to seek God in his holy temple.

We have come with shouts of joy,

to sing and to make music to the Lord.

Let us worship God in spirit and in truth.

Teach us your ways and make straight our paths 

in this hour of worship and always.

—based on Psalm 27; John 4:23

October Benevolence – World Mission Offering

Each year, the World Mission Offering (WMO) casts a spotlight on a different part of the world - giving American Baptists a personal, front row seat to the powerful ministries that are changing lives for Christ around the globe.  This year, WMO is excited to share the spiritual revival happening in Baptist churches right now in CUBA!  Cuba’s spiritual awakening - and the many other amazing things God is doing around the world - are exciting testimonies that “with God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
