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: From generation to generation, God names us and claims​us.
All: ​Let heaven and earth praise God’s holy name.
One: From our earliest steps, Christ guides our wayward feet.
All: ​Let all who draw breath come back to the Lord.
One: From death to life, the Spirit sets us free.
All: ​Let the faithful rejoice in God’s holy covenant.
One: From generation to generation, God names us and claims​us.
All: ​Let heaven and earth praise God’s holy name.
