Call to Worship

(based on Matthew 11:28-30)

Brothers and sisters, boys and girls—
come and worship!
Even if you’re tired and worn out—
come and worship!
Lay down the heavy things you are carrying—
come and worship!
Listen to what Jesus wants to tell you—
come and worship!
See if you can discover how Jesus wants to use you—
come and worship!
For Jesus is humble and gentle,
and he will give us everything we need to follow him.
