Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost
Welcome and Announcements
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.
*Call to Worship
One: We come with praise for the wonderful works of God.
All: Even before we speak, God knows us completely.
One: The Holy One knows us and sustains us, even in our moments of confusion and doubt.
All: Who can count the thoughts of God? They are more than all the sands of the desert.
One: Like clay in the hands of the potter, we are shaped into vessels of divine will.
All: We come with praise for the wonderful works of God.
