Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church!

  • CALL TO WORSHIP 

The Psalmist declares, “Bless the Lord, O my soul.”

God of many Names, you are fathomless;

You are wrapped in light like a garment; you stretch out the sky like a tent.

You make the clouds your chariot; you ride on the wings of the wind.

You make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. Psalm 104:1-4

 

And as You speak, a hundred billion galaxies are born;

In the vapor of Your breath, the planets form.

If the stars were made to worship, so will I.

We can see Your heart in everything You’ve made;

Every burning star, a signal fire of grace.

If creation sings Your praises, so will I!                                Hillsong United

With all creation, let us sing praise to our God while we have being.

For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever. Amen.
