Call to Worship                                                            Debbie Livingston and Josie and Oliver Main
    Let us bless the Lord at all times;
        Let God’s praise be continually in our mouths
    The lives of God’s servants are redeemed.
        None who take refuge in God will be condemned
    O let us magnify the Lord together;
        Let us exalt God’s Name! Alleluia!

Opening Prayer
Almighty and everlasting God, who lights the flame of love in the hearts of your saints:
  Grant to us that same faith and power of love, that as we rejoice in their triumphs we may also profit by their examples;
  Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit, surrounded by the cloud of witnesses in the Church Expectant, lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

This week Cathy brings her grandchildren to church for Children's Time

where they can look at and reflect on Trinity's beautiful rainbow windows. 

The trio discuss what the windows symbolize to them and what the rainbow signifies to all God's people.
