Call to Worship

One:      The Risen One has come alongside us on our journey from the empty tomb.

Many:    He speaks to us with love and encouragement the word that frees us from our sorrows.

One:     Let us celebrate the promise of life, for Christ is risen.

Many:    Christ is risen, indeed. Alleluia!

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
