Call to Worship (based on Psalm 118):
L: The Lord is my strength and my power!
P: The Lord has become my salvation!
L: There are joyous songs of victory in the tents of the righteous
P: The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
All: this is the day which the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
