In this place, among these people
God is worshipped, God is praised
We have seen the signs and wonders;
The lost are found, 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
Leader: Joy is loose,
All: In the wiggles of the children and those like children.
Leader: The whispers of the young at heart,
All: The smiles of adults.
Leader: We praise God for this glorious day.
