Call to Worship
Once again we gather,
From different homes and circumstances,
With different dreams and ideas, different values and tastes,
different in age and color, different in gender and language.
Yet we are one family – Children of God, every one;
We join our hearts in worship,
We join our voices in praise, and we join our lives
as the Body of Christ. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,
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.

Blessed Be the Tie that Binds Our Hearts
Though we are set apart,
our times of gath’ring lost.
Our voices still we raise to God,
Who makes community.
Blest be the tie that binds
our hearts in Christian love.
The fellowship of kindred minds
is like to that above.
