WE CELEBRATE AND PRAISE GOD
Call to Worship:

We Worship because; We live amid crumbs,We Worship because:
We know in God there is a wholeness greater than the pieces of our lives.
We Worship because: We are sharp and life can be shatters, and yet God's serene nature beckons us in. In our worship we pick up all of this stuff, set it at the table and know that God alone is the one true thing.
Hymn: Spirit of the Living God VU# 376
Prayer of Humility:
We gather to join voices with others when ours are lacking, to sing praise and sing lament. We gather to be strengthened to go out into the world and live a life faithful of the gospel. We gather to be challenged to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God. We gather to be assured we are forgiven and loved.
