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!
