DOXOLOGY & CALL TO WORSHIP
Missio, we gather today because,
All too easily we get caught up and distracted
Blinded by our busyness and self-importance.
All too easily we forget out true poverty;
Missing the truth of our dependence.
All too easily we dismiss our need;
Convinced we can secure our own way.
All too easily we write a new gospel;
A story of our own ability and glory.
We gather, because all too easily we buy a lie;
And suffer the pain of hallow promises.
We gather because Jesus calls us to more;
A light of true abundance rooted and founded in him.
We gather today to experience the life he promises.
Before The Throne Of God Above
The Lion And The Lamb
No Longer Slaves
Be Thou My Vision
Head To The Heart
We are saturated in a landscape of consumption and validation. A space of false images and shallow promises. But the good news is that Jesus breaks into lies and offers a life rooted in love. Go out, a loved people and offer the world the same hope you’ve received. Go now, in the identity of Jesus, and be the church this week.
