  • THE CALL TO WORSHIP

In this hour of worship, we will hear of the power of Christ and the power of the Spirit.

Come Lord Jesus! Come Holy Spirit! Enter into our lives.

By God’s power,

heaven and earth were formed.

By God’s power,

we were created and given the gift of life.

By God’s power,

we are guided and protected.

By God’s power,

Jesus Christ triumphed over the grave.

By God’s power,

the Holy Spirit reaches out to sustain and care for us.
