Worship Sequence

Welcome and Call to Worship: Our call to worship is taken from Hosea 6:1 and Lamentations 3:22-23.

Invocation Prayer: Typically pastor or worship leader prays here. Musicians can begin playing the first hymn quietly in the background.[Optional Prayer: Our Father, we were dead in trespasses and sins, carrying out our own selfish desires. We were children of wrath, lost and undone. But God, You are rich in mercy, and because of the great love with which You love us, You have made us alive together with Christ—We glorify Your name today and praise You for your grace and mercy. We come into Your presence through Christ, Amen.]
