*THE CALL TO WORSHIP Leader: Lord, save us from ourselves. People: We continue to do the same things over and over, expecting different results. Leader: Lord, save us from doing too much. People: We go fishing every day, not noticing you waiting with a meal on the beach. Leader: Lord, save us from doing too little. People: We say we love you, and yet so often we neglect your sheep. Leader: Lord, save us from ourselves. People: Help us to hear and respond when you say, “Follow Me.” *THE OPENING PRAYER (in unison) O Lord, your wondrous birth means nothing unless we are born again, your death and sacrifice mean nothing unless we die to sin, your resurrection means nothing if you be risen alone. Raise and exalt us, O Savior, both now to the estate of grace and hereafter to the state of glory; where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, God for ever and ever. Amen. *HYMN OF PRAISE
