Call to Worship
We give thanks to you, God our Father, for mercy that reaches out, for patience that waits our returning, for your love that is ever ready to welcome sinners.
We praise you that in Jesus Christ you came to us with forgiveness, and that, by your Holy Spirit, you move us to repent and receive your love.
Though we are sinners, you are faithful and worthy of all praise.
We praise you, great God, in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
