Sisters and Brothers, God our God is full of power!
Like someone stranded in the desert looking for water, we will seek the Lord.
God's love is better than life and worthy of our praise.
We will praise the Lord as long as we live, lifting our hands to heaven.
God is our help and upholds us like an eagle gathering her own.
We will bless the Lord and sing under the shadow of God's wings.

Next Sunday is the UMCOR Sunday
For more than 50 years, United Methodist congregations have been taking part in a special UMCOR Sunday offering, laying the foundation for UMCOR’s ministry of relief and hope.
Donations UMCOR receives through this offering help cover the costs of doing business. Gifts like yours make it possible for UMCOR to use 100% of all other contributions on the projects our donors specify, instead of on administrative or fundraising costs.
