Contemporary Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 14)

The foolish say, "There is no God!
We are alone, on our own."
We gather to declare
the glory of God in our lives.

The foolish say, "It is your life;
you are accountable to no one."
We gather, strengthened by the Spirit,
trusting that Christ dwells in our hearts.

The foolish say, "Everything I have is mine;
I owe nothing to any one."
We gather to praise the One
who calls us to serve others in love.
