Call to Worship
People of God, worship the living God today!
Remember that out of nothing God created the heavens and earth. Remember that God raised Jesus
from the powerlessness of death
to the power of his right hand.
Remember that not even the gates of hell
can stand against God’s purposes.
Behold your God, who reigns now and forever!
