*Call to Worship


     Leader:     It is an awesome thing to stand in the presence of God, to call God’s holy name.

      People:    As far as the heavens are above the earth, God’s ways are above our ways.

      Leader:     But we come with confidence, because in Christ we are called to be God’s people.

      People:    Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before God our Maker!
