Calls To Worship
The Body of Christ
Adapted from 1 Corinthians 12
Leader: There are different spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; and there are different ministries and the same Lord;
People: Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many parts.
Leader: We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jew or Greek, or slave or free.
People: We were all given one Spirit to drink. Come, Holy Spirit!
All: Let us worship God!

Adapted from Ephesians 4:3-6
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
There is only one body and one Spirit,
Just as you were called to one hope when you were called;
One Lord, one faith, one baptism;
One God and father of us all,
Who is over all, and in all, and through.

Leader: Arise! Shine! Christ’s Church has assembled.
People: We are one body, with Christ as our head.
Leader: What kind of body is this?
People: The Body of Christ, brought together not by human flesh, but by the sovereign Lord.
Leader: And who does he call us to be?
People: A people who look not to their own interests, but to the interests of others. Those who proclaim the goodness of their Lord.
Leader: Come, Let us worship as one united body.
