The Risen Jesus is the good shepherd. We follow him only. We follow wherever and however he leads us, because he is the good shepherd who leads us into the streams of life.

WelcomingIntroit: MV 21 “Open Our Hearts”
Call to Worship: Psalm 23 (The Message) together
God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction.
Even when the way goes through Death Valley, I’m not afraid when you walk at my side. Your trusty shepherd’s crook makes me feel secure.
You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing.
Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life. Amen.

We acknowledge we worship on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We thank them for having cared for this land and look forward to relating with them as covenant people of God as we continue to care for this land together.
Helping A Neighbour We appreciate all donations – on any level you feel you can give. Every dollar helps us reach into the neighbourhood to: create connections, reduce loneliness, and support the Arts.
Your ARE Making A difference. Thank you!
