Welcome and Announcements
Praise Song “The Summons” SUMH #2130
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: Long ago, a voice cried out in the wilderness.
All: Prepare the way for the Lord; make straight the pathways.
One: Something new was about to happen.
All: God would visit God’s people in a new way!
