CALL TO WORSHIP                                                                                                                                       

Pastor: Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive 

with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions; it is by grace you have 

 been saved.

People: Thank you, Father, for your amazing love!

Pastor: This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

People: Thank you, Father, for your amazing love!
