Call to Worship
One: The Holy One, God of love and justice, calls us to this time together now:
All: We come, to this time or space, thankful to be a part of this community of faith.
One: God, who calls us by name, has made a home among us,
All: and we rejoice that we are not alone!
One: Come, let us worship the One who is our Rock,
All: the foundation upon which our faith and our family is built!
Opening Hymn: “The Church’s One Foundation” (UMH 545)
Prayer of Confession: Rev. Becky McGee
One: Holy God, you call us to live in mystery, to walk by faith.
All: Yet we long for plans with goals and schedules. It’s hard to live by faith.
One: You call us to place our trust in you, to live according to your direction.
All: Yet we want life to make sense from a human point of view. It’s hard to live by faith.
One: You call us to feel the mystery of life, to marvel at the power of your love.
All: Yet it’s not easy to accept your promise that everything old has passed away, and that you are making all things new. It’s hard to live by faith.
One: Forgive us, God of grace;
All: Forgive us for building on other foundations, and falling away.
