In this place, among these people God is worshipped, God is praised.
We have seen the signs and wonders; the lost are found here, the dead are raised. We are living the Gospel story; lives are changed and mountains moved. Won’t you come and work among us?
You are welcomed, you are loved.

Welcome and Announcements

*Call to Worship
One: Come, Seekers of Life!
All: Let us sow the seeds of our prayers and songs into the fertile soil of God’s Presence.
One: Let life crack open our hearts, and give birth to renewed spirits.
All: Let all that brings death be consumed in the passionate flame of our worship.
One: And let the resurrection power of our God
All: be expressed and made visible in the shared intimacy of the sacred meal we will share.

Life-Sustaining God, Every living thing in the universe owes its life to You; All things, seen and unseen, have come into being because of Your creative word.  Your gift of life is ours to enjoy also.  You made us in Your image, You breathed the breath of life into each one of us; We live because You spoke our name.  You have made us to be Your children.  Your energizing Spirit flows through every creature, and through each one of us; You have filled the world with Your Presence and Your voice, You have filled our lives with Your compassion; And we are fed by Your bounty.  As our souls are fed by Your hand, we praise and honor you. AMEN
