Call To Worship

One:         Take off your shoes!

Many:    We are standing on holy ground.

One:         Shake off the dust!

Many:    We are ready to start afresh.

One:         Let us worship God and receive Christ’s teachings,

Many:    That we may be renewed and strengthened

                 to share God’s love with the world.

*Lord’s Prayer

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.
