As you begin this service, take a few moments to bring yourself before
God – your present state of mind and preoccupations, as well as your
desire to meet God during this time.
Call to Worship
L: God’s people have been called to gather.
P: From breast-feeding infants to aged
grandparents, all are welcome.
L: God’s people have been called to repent.
P: From those who wear their faults on
their sleeves, to those whose secret hearts
are broken, all are welcome.
L: God’s people have been called to be reconciled to our God.
P: From those who have turned away,
to those whose pain whispers in the night,
all are welcome.
