Welcome and Announcements
Praise Song “My Tribute” (1 time through) UMH #99
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: Coming from places that have seen better days,
All: God bids us to celebrate this day, a day full of new possibilities.
One: Coming with our breath taken away by grief,
All: The Holy Spirit breathes new life within us, renewing our connection with God and with one another.
One: Coming to worship seeking a hope that will endure,
All: Christ unbinds the fetters that hold us in death, speaking in word and sacrament, and building community for holy service.
