14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.

MATTHEW 5:14-16, 16:18 NRSV

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 PETER 2:9-10 NRSV

cALL TO WORSHIP

Do we wonder why we are here?
We are the salt seasoning of creation, bringing out the God-flavors of this earth.
Do we wonder why we are here?
We are here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept.
So let us worship our God!
