Contemporary Song: “Come, Now is the Time to Worship” by Phillips, Craig, and Dean (LYRIC VIDEO LINK)
Call to Worship:
Leader: God, we have not known how to use the gifts you have given us.
PEOPLE: We have failed to share words of wisdom with our young – those words that let them know they have value and worth, those words that help those in prison know that, though they are locked out of our society they are not locked out of God’s grace or mercy.
Leader: Forgive us for not using our gifts to bless.
PEOPLE: God, we don’t want to be ignorant; so help us use the gifts you have given us in the spirit you gave them, to build your kingdom and your people. Amen.
