“Lord, as You awaken us to delight in Your praise,
grant that we may know You, call on You, and praise You;
for You have made us for Yourself,
and our hearts are restless
until they find their rest in You. Amen.
As we worship today, may we come to know the rest that
God alone can give.
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
