Call To Worship

One: See what love has been given to us, that we should be called children of God.

Many: By this we know love, that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, and lived and died, that God’s love might be made plain among us.

One: Therefore, beloved, let us not love in word or in speech but in deed and in truth.

Many: Because we love one another, we know that we have passed from death into life. All: This is the victory that overcomes the world, through Jesus our risen 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.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
