The Resurrection Life: Welcome

Passage: John 10:1-10
Service Type:

Jesus, the Gate, the Shepherd, the one who calls us, welcomes us as his sheep into his family. That welcome is extended to all who hear his voice, who listen, and follow it. As people of the Resurrection Life, we extend that radical, loving welcome to others.

Call to Worship

The Shepherd calls us by name
and leads us to abundant life.
We hear your voice and hasten to follow.
The Shepherd prepares prepares a table
and lavishly pours out grace.
We hear your invitation
and take our place at the feast.
The Shepherd gathers us in
and welcomes us to the house of the Lord.
We hear your call and give you praise.

Prayer of Confession

We have gone astray, O Shepherd.
You call us to follow,
and we hear your voice.
Yet, we choose to heed other voices-
voices that promise status and comfort
and a carefree life.
But such promises are empty,
and that does not satisfy.

Call to us again, O Shepherd.
Summon us onto right paths
to pursue justice in your name,
to seek after the well-being of all.
Lead us to the table you prepare for us-
where rivals share both bread and blessings
and discover there is enough for all.


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
