*CALL TO WORSHIP

The Lord be with you.

      And also with you.           

   No matter our differences, we are called together for worship and service.

    We are God’s coworkers in constructing God’s building.

We are called to build God’s kingdom on earth, and to help those less fortunate them us.

We need to reach outside our walls, to step out of our comfort zones, to

  help the needy.

We need to go where God is calling us to go and to share the good news of Christ and bring glory to Him.

All: New every morning is your love, great God of light and all day long you are working for good in the world.  Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord.
