Call To Worship

One: Come one and come all.
Come into the presence of God made known in community.
Join us for a feast made ready for everyone.
If you’ve been a part of this community for years,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: If this is your first Sunday with us,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: If you’re here in the building or on Zoom or even watching this later,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: If you feel right at home in worship,
Or if it’s a little awkward still,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: If you’ve arrived here sad or angry or worried or afraid,
Or happy, excited, and hopeful

All:  There is room here for you.

One: Whatever gender or shade of color or shape of body God made you,
Wherever you find yourself in the rainbow,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: Even if it can be confusing and complicated to be you sometimes,

All:  There is room here for you.

One: The point is, God has invited us all to break bread and share the wine
You mean juice. God has invited us to share the juice and bread.

All:  There is room here for us all.

*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.

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