April 5, 2020 Palm Sunday
Call to Worship: Prayer
Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Holy One. This is the gate of the God Who Lives;
the righteous shall enter through it. I thank you that you have answered me
and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Holy One’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psalms 118:19-24) Let us worship God!
