CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader:  The Lord created every part of us as a potter forms the clay.

People:  Lord, You are the Potter, we are the clay.

Leader:  The Lord reshapes our circle of life when we stray from God’s Word.

People:  Lord, our lives are in the Potter’s Hands.

Leader:  The Lord reworks us to be a new creature in Christ

All:  We are the marvelous work of God’s Hands.  Our hearts are kept soft and pliable to receive God’s Word.  We water our minds with Jesus, so we are not hardened from God’s Ways.  We are the property of God’s Wisdom and Truth that praises and worships The Trinity with an unquenchable fire.  Amen.  

 

*PROCESSIONAL HYMN  “I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me”

I was glad when they said unto me (x3)

Let us go into the house of the Lord.

So glad (x3)

 

INVOCATION: (In Unison) Creator God, we humbly stand in Your presence, declaring that we are Your handiwork.  Your touch gives life to us and Your breath shapes and forms us.  The touch of Your grace shines the beauty of Your spirit through our being.  Thank you, Father, for caring enough to melt and mold us to the image of Your son, Jesus Christ.  We pray in Jesus’ name that the Holy Spirit will guide and protect us, making us God’s peculiar children. Amen.
