*CALL TO WORSHIP

Let us come together now to the house of the Lord and worship!

      But the crops are ripe and the harvest is upon us!

       Let us take then even a short time and give thanks to the Lord!

   But there will be time later when all is done and the day is over.

Let us take time now to praise God that we have this day at all!

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
