Call to Worship
L: If it had not been God who was on our side, the troubles of our world would have swallowed us whole.
P: If it had not been God who was on our side,
the sorrows of our times would have swept us away.
L: Are any among us suffering?
P: Come and pray.
L: Are any among us cheerful?
P: Come sing songs of praise.
L: Are any among us sick?
P: Come and ask for healing.
L: Our help is in our God, the One who made heaven and earth. Call upon God, creator and rescuer.
P: God is on our side. AMEN!
Eternal God, you create us and you rescue us. Be here with us now. Help us know how much we need you. Teach us that no other power can support us like your power. As you share your power with us, teach us to be Christ to the world, proclaiming your reign for all people. As you lavish your love upon us, help us receive that love and offer it to the world, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
