Intro to Worship

Greetings & Welcome

“Pave the Wave Branches”

Call to Worship
Jesus entered into Jerusalem, humbly, on a donkey,
seeking to transform the people.
People gathered from everywhere to wave palm branches
and praise him as royalty.
Jesus enters into our lives humbly,
seeking to transform our hearts and lives.
Let us worship Jesus Christ together,
and receive him into our presence.
