Call to Worship
(inspired by Psalm 119: 1-8)

Blessed and Righteous God,
your truths and grace are revealed to us
as we search your Holy Word.
We come today, to listen to the Word of the Lord.

Gracious God,
you help us to know you through your Holy Word,
which guides and blesses us.
We come today, to worship the Lord our God.

Holy God,
we gather to worship and praise you,
to learn from your Word in fellowship with others.
We come today, to praise the Lord our God. Amen.
