*Call to Worship

One: God speaks peace to the faithful, to those who turn to God in their hearts.

All: Surely salvation is at hand for those who fear God.

One: Where God dwells, steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.

All: Faithfulness springs up from the ground and righteousness looks down from the sky. God gives what is good, and we respond with abundant praise!

*Invocation (unison)

Holy God, you speak to us in a voice unexpected and come to us in ways we do not recognize. Never leaving us to our own devices or defenses, you are the ever-present, all-powerful God. Call us out in faith again and again, until we learn to walk with you in steadfast love and faithfulness, and in peace. In the name of the One who comes to us upon the waters, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

*Greet One Another

Prayers of the People & The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
