Most Recent Lord's Day

November 20, 2022

“For the word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”

Psalm 33:4-5



Welcome to all who worship here today. May God bless us as we hear the gospel in preaching and as we sing His praises, lift our prayers to Him and present our offerings of thanks. 



Hymns are sung from the Trinity Psalter Hymnal

We also sing from "Songs for Worship", a church songbook made up of consistory-approved songs not available in the Hymnal (links available).
