Call to Worship

Bob Oaks, Leader

One:           Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
                     Worship the Lord with gladness;
                     come into his presence with singing.

Many:       Know that the Lord is God.
                     It is he that made us, and we are his;
                     we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

One:           Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
                     and his courts with praise.
                     Give thanks to him, bless his name.

Many:        For the Lord is good;
                     his steadfast love endures forever,
                     and his faithfulness to all generations.

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