Call to Worship Matthew 5:14-16Sam Williams One:‘You are the light of the world. All:A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. One:No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, All:and it gives light to all in the house. One:In the same way, All:let your light shine before others, One:So that they may see your good works All:and give glory to your Father in heaven. Amen.
