GREETING AND WELCOME
CALL TO WORSHIP
In the name of Jesus Christ, I welcome you to worship!
It is a delight to be together in the house of God!
We lift our voices with joyful hearts!
It is right to give God thanks and praise!
May the grace of God, the love of Jesus,
and the communion of the Holy Spirit
be with us now in this hour and always.

Let us never forget that God makes all things new; every minute of every day, God is at work in our lives and all around us. He gave His greatest gift in the name of Jesus; let us do our part and give of our time, our talents, our gifts and our offering.
Holy and generous God, we pray that you would grow these gifts to bless the world. We imagine a world with enough resources, justice, laughter, and freedom for all of your people. Do with our gifts even more than we can imagine, holy one, and make of us a loving and generous people. Amen.
