The Call to Worship
: (responsively)
Come, sing a new song of worship.                      Come, sing a new song of praise.
Today is a day of a promise fulfilled.
With joy we celebrate Pentecost.
Pentecost – a day when power and comfort flowed.
Pentecost – a day of hope and inspiration.
A day when the Holy Spirit was revealed in flaming glory
and the glory was given to the people.
The fire of the Holy Spirit lives on in us.  Sing praises!
We sing praises, indeed!
