Call To Worship

One: When we can’t get up

 All: God reaches out

One: When we can’t do it alone

 All: God steps in

One: When we don’t know where to turn

 All: God shows us the way

One: And when we gather to worship

 All: God gathers among us.  Amen.

*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.
