Call to Worship
(based on 1 Thessalonians 2: 1-8)

We do not gather in vain,
for God is working in our hearts.
The love of Jesus Christ calls us together.
Our worship strengthens and empowers us
to share the gospel.
The love of Jesus Christ shines in our lives.
Proclaim the good news with boldness.
The love of Jesus Christ is at work in the world!
