Call to Celebration
We gather in community to celebrate the gifts of God.
We are the people of God.
We celebrate the diverse gifts among us.
We are the creation of God.
Our existence is intentional.
We are the beloved of God.
Humankind is the imagination of God.
We are the family of God.
God of all creation, we are grateful for the ways you have blessed our community to be present for one another. As we present our gifts to you and one another, remind us to pause, enjoy, and give thanks for the opportunities to share. Amen

Romans 12:1-2, 9-13 NIV
A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Love in Action
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
