PRELUDE     "Just as I am"  -  played by Helen Wild

(Click the picture to listen!)    


God is in our midst, forming us to be God’s own people.
Though the way may be difficult, God will be with us.
We need not fear.
In the Lord we will take our refuge, for God is our strength.
Come to the Lord who will surround you with God’s own righteousness.
Lord, open our hearts and our spirits so that we may faithfully follow you.



The Lord’s Prayer   (click on link to listen)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Heavenly Father, We thank You for the Church and all that it means in our lives and in the redemption of the world. 

We thank You for all those whom You have called to follow You.  

Be with us as we are dispersed to share Your love with our God-given gifts. 

Please forgive us when we stray from Your good purposes. 

Gently bring us back to Your Way. 

We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
