Thanksgiving Call to Worship

Here is a responsive call to worship litany for thanksgiving. It was written by Richard Bott (Vancouver, BC, Canada).

Call to Worship for Thanksgiving
(inspired by Psalm 100, Deuteronomy 26:9-10)

Shouts of joy!
Songs of praise!
Sounds of hope and love!
These are moments of thanksgiving –
thanks giving to our God!


Adonai is our God. Our creator.
We are God’s people, led by God’s love.
These are moments of thanksgiving –
thanks giving to our God!


Enter God’s house thanks giving.
Enter God’s house full of praise!
These are moments of thanksgiving –
thanks giving to our God!

God’s love is never ending.
God is good! Alleluia!

On this day of the harvest –
we bring our gifts to you, God.
You have brought us into this place
and shared with us this land,
a land flowing with milk and honey,
a land flowing with maple syrup,

Bless this thanksgiving, offered now to you!
In Christ’s name, we ask it. May it be so.
