Call to Worship (Acts 2: 22-24, 32, 36) Mary Day
“Hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know; Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain; whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death; because it was not possible that He should be holden of it. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore, know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
