Worship leaders - see basic
who first loved us,
who is the source
of every joy,
and every song worth singing;
who knows your
children better than we know ourselves,
who feeds the

who gives hope to
who strengthens the

and walk with us
for this is your ground upon which we tread.
Forgive our faltering enthusiasm,
our willingness to let others answer your call,
our lack of compassion,
our outrage over the wrong things,
our failure to simply follow you.
Through your forgiveness make us teachable,
willing, ready, and
to "march" to those "fairer worlds on high."
This we pray in the name of the One
who is our
"Immanuel," Jesus. AMEN

Guide me down the road of your commandments;

Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,

See how hungry I am for your counsel;
preserve my life

our Tithes and Offerings
To a man
outside the Temple gate, outside the safety net of that society,
the apostle Peter once said "I have no silver or gold, but
what I have I give you." And then; "in the name
of Jesus Christ of Nazareth," Peter simply told this
lame-from-birth man, "stand up and walk." And the
man did. (Acts 3:6)
friends, we do have silver and gold. We also have something
to share which is far greater. The question is, will we? Will we
share? Will we "stand up and walk?" As you return your
offering just now, mindful of all we have seen in the news this
week, rise to the occasion with what you have to share and follow
Jesus. God will provide a way to help.
