Here’s an opening litany of welcome from the Worship Well website.
Leader: We bid you welcome
who come with weary spirit seeking rest.
All: Who come with troubles that are too much with you,
who come hurt and afraid
One: We bid you welcome who come with hope in your heart.
All: Who come with anticipation in your step,
who come proud and joyous.
Two: We bid you welcome who are seekers of new faith.
All: Who come to probe and explore,
who come to learn.
Three: We bid you welcome who enter this place as a homecoming.
All: Who have found here room for your spirit,
who find in this people a home.
Leader: Whoever you are,
whatever you are,
wherever you are on your journey,
we bid you welcome.
