Call to Worship

One: From the waters of Creation, the earth sprang forth.

Many: From the waters of a womb, God’s blessed Son was given to us.

One: From the waters of a river, people were baptized and marked as God’s children

Many: Praise be to God, whose loving gifts and presence have called us together.

One: Let us shout our love to God for God’s abundant love

Many: 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.
