Call to Celebration

God, your living word draws us to this sacred space.

May we hear and respond to the Spirit’s call.

You have invited us to receive the abundance of grace.

May we hear and respond to the Spirit’s call.

The risk we take to leave our comfort zones leads us to bounty.

May we hear and respond to the Spirit’s call.

Courageous action will expand our capacity for next-level living.

Holy Spirit, embolden us to take the next faithful step for our net-breaking opportunities.



God, may we never underestimate your vision and power. You generously provide what is needed to become a thriving community. May we never underestimate the power of collective work to transform our communities and ourselves. Amen

Scripture Lesson 

Luke 5:1-11 NIV

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

5 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. 2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.

4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”

5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.

8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” 9 For he and all his com- panions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.

Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left every- thing and followed him.
