Greeting and Welcome
Prelude - 
 Lord Whose Love Through Humble Service

Centering Words
Speaking words of love, God creates us, calls us and claims us as his own. Listen, so we can hear the truth: we are beloved children of God! We are created in love, created for love, created to love.
 
Call to Worship
God’s strong voice calls us to gather.
Calling us together as one.
God’s creative voice calls us to worship.
Calling us to sing and praise.
God’s loving voice calls us to bless.
Calling us to love and be loved.
Listen, for God’s voice calls us now.
We listen to God’s words of love!
 
Opening Prayer
Spirit of creation and renewal, hover over our gathering as you hovered over creation on that first day. Descend on us like a dove, as you did on Jesus’s baptism. Enter into our hearts and our lives, as you did at the day of our baptism, that we may hear again your words of love and adoption. Amen.

Prayer of Yearning
Lord forgive us when we struggle with sin, pain, confusion or fear because we cannot hear your loving words. Heal us with your mercy. Speak to our spirits from the truth of your being, the reality of your love, and the promise of your forgiveness, that we may hear your voice clearly and follow where you call us to go. Amen.
 
Words of Assurance
Hear the truth of God’s voice breaking through the clouds of our lives:
In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God!
