Call to Worship
Celebration is in the air.
Today we praise and celebrate the God of grace!
This is the time and here is the place
We’ve come to hear the Word and grow in grace.
We celebrate the Lord of Creation and Father of Jesus Christ
And our place as his people.
Come near to us, O God, hear our praise and prayer
As we listen, help us grow more deeply as your family on earth
May this be a day we are built up in your service and care for our world
And shape us into a nearer reflection of that love we know in
