The Fourth Sunday in Lent


Call to Worship

One: Before we were born,
All: Before we took our first breath,
One: Before the week started,
All: Before the year started,
One: Before we said, “I love you,”
All: Before we said, “I’m sorry,”
One: Before we began to figure out who we really are,
All: Before we began the journey of becoming,
One: Before it all—
All: God loved us.
One: Unconditionally and freely,
All: Fully and honestly—
One: God loves us!

Doxology  All we are, we lay it down

All we are, we lay it down,
for you, our God and friend;
Take our lives into your hands,
here we are to send.
Search our hearts, and you will find
willingness to serve
For your cross has covered us
with grace we don’t deserve.

Companions together walking the way.

Lighting the darkness, surprising us all.
