The Light of Christ Welcomes You

*Introit

*Called Into God’s Presence

            One: Before you were born, God knew you!

            ALL:  Before we were born, God set us apart!

One: 

We are being shaped and formed by the

loving hands of God.  Once we were no people,

ALL:  

But now, we are God’s People!  We ARE His Church!

Acts 5: 25-32


Unison Prayer

Lord Jesus, we are amazed at the courage your resurrection

and your Spirit gave to the first apostles.  

They weren’t afraid of speaking your name.  

They had no fear of being put in prison for their efforts.  

They knew the power of your resurrection was available to them, 

and they were eager to be obedient to your leadership.  

They were so excited about the story, they couldn’t stop

talking about what you had done for our redemption.  

We want to be that inspired.  We want to be so thrilled by your story, 

that it moves us to share it with those who have not heard.  

Stir up in us the desire to serve you; we ask in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
