Call to Worship
We gather here to worship God
With ears ready to listen
With hearts and minds open to receive
With voices ready to sing praise

God knows us
God guides us
God raises us up
God is with us now

We gather together to worship God
We come to God who inclines an ear to us
We come to God who gives us words to speak
We come to God in reverence and awe

God gives us life
God sets us free
God speaks a better word
We gather to worship God
