Our Approach To God

Call to Worship: Carol White


Leader: We come to worship God,

ALL: God is just. God is compassionate. God is love.

 

Leader: Where will we find God?

ALL: God is among the hungry and thirsty; God wears the face of a stranger and reaches out to us in the despairing hand.

 

Leader: How can we serve God?  

ALL: Give food to the hungry and water to the thirsty; welcome the stranger and comfort the despairing.

 

Leader: Let us seek God so that we can serve God.

ALL: Let us worship God who is just, compassionate and love itself.

Kid's Focus 

Kid's Prayer & Lord's Prayer: Rev. Bill Bynum

 

All People: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed

                    be Thy name.

                   Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done

                   on earth as it is in heaven.

                    Give us this day our daily bread, and

                    forgive us our trespasses as we

                    forgive those who trespass against us.

                   And lead us not into temptation but

                   deliver us from evil.

                   For Thine is the kingdom, the power

                   and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
