1 Peter 1:13-16 NRSV
Rev Mary Beth Hardesty-Crouch

13 Therefore prepare your minds for action, discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you when he is revealed. 14 Like obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires that you formerly had in ignorance. 15 Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

1 Peter 1:13-16 NRSV

Call to worship

God has saved us and called us to a holy life
not because of anything we have done, but for his own purpose.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit that we shall be renewed as your holy people.
Let us worship God!


We believe in a bold God, Creator of splendor, spinning stars into night skies, warming the planet with life-giving sunshine, filling the earth with all creatures great and small.

We believe in a big God, Creator of 150 billion galaxies, who is big enough to receive our praise and loving enough to answer our prayers.

We believe in the risen Christ, who meets us in the brokenness of life, accompanies us on all our wanderings and forever seeks to welcome us home with open arms.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, guide and companion, who fills the church with windy hope and fiery compassion.

We believe in the church, where we can taste some of the heavenly banquet and live as a renewed people for the world. Amen.
