WORDS OF WELCOME/ANNOUNCEMENTS
+CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Thanks be to Christ Jesus who has called us into service and enlisted us in a new expedition.
PEOPLE: We have been shown much mercy since we enrolled as pilgrims in the faith.
Leader: Let us surge forward as comrades in the company of Christ; let us make preparations for a spiritual journey.
PEOPLE: We do not know just what we may encounter. The mysteries of God are many and the will of God is often hard to track.
Leader: Shoulder your packs and gear. The Spirit will be our guide. No enemy will prevail against the Church of Jesus.
PEOPLE: We are ready to map out the uncertain terrain. We have our orders. It is enough for us to know that we start out with a perfect guide who would even give his life for us.
