INTRO TO WORSHIP

GREETINGS & WELCOME

CALL TO WORSHIP
We celebrate God’s gift to us, not only on Christmas Day,
but every day.
Let us continue to celebrate the mystery of God’s love.
(Light the Christ Candle)
God is at our beginnings and our endings.
May we follow Jesus, allowing God’s love to work in
and through us in the new year.

LORD’S PRAYER

DEDICATION
We long for the time
when the meek shall inherit the earth
and all who hunger and thirst after justice
shall be satisfied,
and we believe that, despite the persistence of evil,
now is always the time
when more good can be done
and we can make a difference.
May it be so, through the offering of these gifts
and the offering of our lives. Amen.
