CALL TO WORSHIP Genesis 1. 1–32 Youth Fellowship
CHORAL INTROIT O Be Joyful — John Yarrington Chancel Choir
One: In the beginning God created all things,
All: and God saw that they were good.
One: At our beginning, God created us, each unique and irreplaceable, loved and
wanted by God, known and treasured by God even before He created us.
All: In this new day, God creates something new so we will seek God in the
freshness of this morning, in the laughter of friends, in the wonders of life,
and in this beautiful place.
One: Eternal God, your Spirit moved on the waters — and there was light. Your Spirit
also moved on the water of our baptism — and again, there was light in our souls
and hearts. Let your holy light shine on us today, as we remember your creation
and our special part in it. Open our eyes to see your presence, our souls to sense
your presence, and our hearts to love your presence, ever here in your creation,
and ever beyond it in eternity. Amen.
