WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
INTRODUCTION TO WORSHIP THEME
CALL TO WORSHIP:
As God’s chosen ones we gather for worship.
We gather clothed in the glory of Christ.
We gather clothed in Christian love.
We gather clothed in compassion and mercy.
We gather clothed in patience and kindness.
As we answer God’s call, the Spirit grows in our lives,
that we may be clothed in glory and love, compassion and mercy, patience and kindness—
cloaks of protection for a world in need of God’s grace.
As God’s chosen ones, come, let us worship!

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH:
God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ
and by the power of the Holy Spirit
to grow as communities of grace, joy and peace
so that God’s healing and hope flow through us to the world.
