✞Call to Worship (congregation responds in bold)

 As the sun rises in the morning,

    let all creation worship God.

 From the highest mountains to the deepest seas,

    let all creation proclaim the name of the Lord,

    for God alone is worthy to be praised.

God alone makes all things new.

   All praise, glory, and honor be yours, forever

✞ Opening Prayer (unison)                              Sharon Wolf

Gracious and loving God,

    you meet us where we are.

We gather together from many walks of life,

    but we are unified as one heart

    in the body of Christ.

In our time of worship,

   open our ears to hear your voice;

   open our eyes to see your glory;

   open our minds to receive your word;

   open our hearts to perceive your presence.

   Amen.
