Welcome and Announcements

Special Presentation: Nigeria Well Mission Project

Praise Song “Come, Now is the Time to Worship” Overhead


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: Jesus says, “Now is the time!”
All: ​Startle us, God, from our busyness and routines. Show us how very close your Kingdom is.
One: Jesus says, “God’s Kingdom is at hand!”
All: ​Deliver us, God, from faith in our own strength. Free us from the traps of violence, dishonesty, and greed.
One: Jesus says, “Receive the good news from God!”
All: ​Embolden us, God, to trust you anew. For we are as fragile as breath, and draw our strength from your mercy and compassion.
