Passing the Peace

Call to Worship - based on Matthew 18:20

Joyful is the sound we make this morning! For this day liberates us from doubt and fear. Thankful is the song we sing! For this day moves us past darkness and despair. Hopeful is the prayer upon our lips! For this day awakens in us long-awaited new life. Jesus said, “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” Christ lives here and now. He is among us at this and every moment! May his peace and presence be known to you. And also to you. Let us greet one another with expressions of Christian love.

That’s why we’ve spent the past ten years working alongside more than a dozen African organizations to bring clean water and HIV/AIDS support to one million people in 11 countries.
