Call to Worship: verses from Ps. 46 with congregation responding

God is our refuge and strength, 

a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, 

though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God.

Hymn 345: Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah
