CALL TO WORSHIP:

The invitation is given to every person by Jesus Christ:

Come to me! Follow me! Be my disciples!

We come to this place, to this time,

at the invitation of Jesus Christ.

In the name of Christ,

we accept the invitation to discipleship.

In the name of Christ,

as his disciples, we worship and praise God.

In the midst of a world where cruelty abounds,

we proclaim the God of Compassion.

In the midst of despair that threatens to swallow up whole lives,

we proclaim the God of Hope.

In the midst of indifference and apathy,

we proclaim the God of Love.

Come, let us worship together

and share our witness of God’s  loving presence in the world.
