Praise Song SUMH #2050
“Mothering God, You Gave me Birth”

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: Delighting in God’s ways,
All: ​We are like trees planted by streams of water.
One: ​Abiding in Christ’s mercy,
All: ​We are like children sheltered against the storm.
One: ​Filled with the Holy Spirit,
All: ​We are one in Christ.
One: ​Come! Let all who draw breath worship the Lord.
