We Greet Each Other
Call to Worship:
Leader: We gather to honor our relationship with God. We gather to worship the God who has redeemed us and loves us.
People: Our help comes from God who made heaven and earth. Our wisdom comes from the one who meets us right here.
Leader: Open your eyes to meet God face to face. Open your ears to hear God’s encouraging instruction.
People: God takes us by the hand and leads us. God’s heart has come to commune with our hearts.
Leader: Come to taste God’s word of life, which is sweeter than honey. Come touch the reality of God’s presence.
People: Surely God welcomes us and protects us. We will walk with new understanding of God’s ways.

Prayers of the Community and the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father who is in Heaven hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
And lead us not into a time of trial, but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen!
