*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 who have knelt in the stable,
All: Let us come and kneel in the temple!
One: Let our hearts give thanks and our hands rejoice!
All: Let our spirits sing and our bodies dance!
One: O children, enter the house of the Lord!
All: Enter God’s presence and be reborn!
