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!
