*CALL TO WORSHIP

O give thanks to the Lord, for God is good.

            God’s love and warm embrace last forever.

When we cry out in distress, the Lord hears our call.

Praise the Lord who delivers us from sin and death.

Christ calls us to clothe ourselves in righteousness.

Worship the One who wraps us with justice, and helps us grow

in the image of our Creator.

Love well, for your heart is where your treasure is.

May our hearts be filled with God’s blessings, divine provisions that

meet our true needs.
