Call to Worship:  Cheryl Dove

We are all invited to God’s nearness in Jesus Christ.
We look for grace revealed in our togetherness and in the lives those beyond our church walls.
We know our together life in Christ is never gated or exclusive.
In every place, we discover what it means to be faithful – with you – to make all things new.

And we hear your invitation to help heal and repair the world’s shattered wholeness.
