Prelude – “Change My Heart O God”

Call to Worship

Leader: The word of God comes into our lives in many ways.

People: God’s word comes to us, calling us to action and to new life.

Leader: God’s word calls us now, here in our worship.

People: God’s calling word invites us to service and ministry, to praise and thanksgiving.

All: We worship the living God and offer our praises to the eternal One.

Opening Prayer

God of truth, we come longing for the peace that only you can provide. We seem so often to be tossed to and fro, blown about by every wind except that of your own Holy Spirit. Be pleased to dwell here this day, to receive our worship and our praise. Linger long, and speak the truth to us in love, that we may come to the unity of faith and to the knowledge of the full stature of Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.
