Prelude

*Processional
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: In the wilderness of life, we are not alone.
All: God is with us, even in the midst of our loneliness.
One:On the treacherous paths, God’s guidance is ours.
All: We will walk in God’s ways of wisdom and truth.
One: Come to hear. Come to learn. Come to the welcoming place
of God.
All: Here we find grace. Here we find love. Here we will
worship and pray.
