My last post of the day – promise! I used this Call to Worship last year on Stewardship Sunday. Our theme was “A New Beginning” – I was fairly recently called at the time and we were doing a lot of healing and reconciliation in the church. I focused a lot on visions in my preaching and in my conversations about stewardship. This may work well for you this year!
Stewardship Sunday Call to Worship
Sarah E. Weaver (C) 2011
We gather for worship today to celebrate our gifts.
We are celebrating the gifts we give to this church, the pledges we are making for the upcoming year.
We gather for worship today to celebrate our community.
We are celebrating the love and support that we give to one another; the constant quest that we are on to be united by God’s grace.
We gather for worship today to celebrate our future.
We are celebrating a future full of outreach, a future full of service, a future full of worship and a future full of growth. We are celebrating a future with hope.
We gather for worship today to celebrate our visions.
We are celebrating the visions of those who have come before us, the visions that brought us to where we are today and the visions that we see today for the future.
Let us gather in celebration!
Let us worship God!
