Welcome and Announcements

Humorous Words

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: We are born anew.
All: ​We have a living hope.
One: We have an enduring inheritance.
All: ​It is God’s love for us.
One: We trust God.
All: ​We rejoice with hearts filled with praise.
One: Words cannot begin to express our joy.
All: ​How can we express what it means to be invited into God’s presence?
One: Let us worship God this day.
