Call to Worship

One: In a world of uncertainty, we set aside this time to connect with faith.
All: We come carrying worries and fears, losses and dreams;
One: Ready to open our hearts to God’s grace. All: We come bearing the stresses of our week and conflicting concerns;
One: Ready to open our minds to God’s Word.
All: We come feeling overwhelmed and unsure of ourselves, with too much to manage and too little hope;
One: Ready to open our lives to God’s Spirit.
All: We come as we are, to be embraced as we are, by God’s eternal love.
