*Call to Worship


We experience the holiness of God


 in wonder of creation, in endless sky and rolling hills; 

in breathless beauty and quiet grassland;

in acts of courage and silent heart.


We know Jesus as a gateway into God


in gifts of healing and liberations of life;

in recognitions of love and callings to serve;

in sufferings for others and glimpses of grace.


We live from God’s Spirit


in moments of faith, in dreams beyond hoping and in rhythms of new energy.


We name the God who is our center.


We claim the goodness that is ours in God.  

We announce the truth that lies at the heart of the gospel.

We believe we are not alone in our struggle to be the church. 

We come to worship the God of all being!

written by Dorothy McRae-McMahon, adapted by Rex A.E. Hunt
