Prelude: “Cornet Voluntary” William Walond

Welcome and Announcements 

Introit: “Sanctuary” Thompson/Scruggs

Call to Worship

Out of a world of competition,

of winners-and-losers,

where many left behind,

we come together.

The world’s ways are not Christ’s ways.

Out of a world of hatred, violence,

individualism, and life-taking power,

we gather in fellowship as God’s people.

God’s ways are inclusive, expansive, and life-giving for all people.

Hear the voice of the Shepard and enter his gates!

Swim and splash in the cleansing waters of divine community!

Come and worship the God whose love knows no limits! 

Praise be to the Everlasting God!

Special Music: “I will Enter His Gates” Gary Gipson

I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart;
I will enter His courts with praise.
I will say this is the day that the Lord has made.
I will rejoice for He has made me glad.
He has made me glad, He has made me glad,
I will rejoice for He has made me glad.
He has made me glad, He has made me glad,
I will rejoice for He has made me glad. (2x)
