Call to Worship

We come together in this place.
To be together and to claim that we are God's people.

We look to ourselves and to each other
To express the love of God as a sign of hope for the world.

We abandon ourselves
To the working of the Holy Spirit, trusting in God's mercy.

Gather us, O God
And we will know Your life that makes us one.

Gather us, O God
And we shall celebrate our variety and our uniqueness.

Gather us, O God
And we will give You the pain of our brokenness.

Gather us, O God
And we will share the gifts of Your Spirit.

Trinity of love, bind us as one.
That our brokenness be healed by You,
that our fear be held by You,
that our gifts be used by You,
that our lives be offered to You,
so may the world believe.
