Calls To Worship


Adapted from Psalm 36:5-7

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, 

Your faithfulness to the skies. 

Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, 

Your justice like the great deep. 

You, Lord, preserve both people and animals. 

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! 

People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 

We celebrate your incredible love today.

Adapted from Psalm 86

Leader: Come, Let us worship.

People:  Teach us Your ways, O Lord, that we may walk in Your truth; give us undivided hearts to revere Your name.

Leader:  We give thanks to You, O Lord our God, and we will glorify Your name forever.

PeopleFor Your love is great towards us; …You are merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

Leader:  Let us worship, let us praise, let us give thanks!

Adapted from Psalm 92:1-2

It is good to praise the LORD

and make music to your name, O Most High,

to proclaim your love in the morning

and your faithfulness at night.

Adapted from Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the Lord, my soul;  

All my inmost being, praise his holy name.  

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits 

Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 

Who redeems your life from the pit, 

And crowns you with love and compassion,  

Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Adapted from Lamentations 3

Leader:  Your steadfast love, Lord, never ceases,

People:  Your mercies never come to an end;

Leader:  They are new every morning; so let us proclaim –

All:  Great is Your faithfulness.  Great is Your love.  Great is Your mercy.  And greatly is Your name to be praised!

Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:1-8

Pastor: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

All: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

Pastor: Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

All: Love never ends.

Adapted from Ephesians 3:18,19

And I pray that you

Being rooted and established in love

Together, with all the Lord’s holy people,

To grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

And to know this love that surpasses knowledge –

That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Lord, we echo the words of Paul’s prayer as we worship you today. Help us all to know your love.

Adapted from Romans 5:6-82 & Corinthians 5:21

Leader: God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

People: You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Adapted from 1 John 4:7-15

Dear friends, 

Let us love one another, for love comes from God. 

Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. This is love: 

Not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 

God is love.  

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. God, please help us to experience your love today so we can embody it for others as we go forth from here.

For the beauty of human love

Brother, sister, parent, child.

Friends on earth and friends above,

For all gentle thoughts and mild;

Lord of all, to thee we raise,

This, our hymn of grateful praise.

We come to you, today, Lord, to offer our thanks for all you do.
