Call to worship
God’s people have gathered for worship
And God is with us.
Strangers and friends, Familiar and new,
Yet one in God’s love, And God is with us.
Feeling lost and hopeless, Feeling found and thankful,
And God is with us.
No matter where we’ve come from
Or where we’re bound God is with us.
We come in gratitude and hope.
Come let us begin with prayer…
