Guide and Light to My Path, I praise your glorious name. I look to your Spirit to guide me through the journey of this day. With the help of your wisdom as spoken to me through your Living Word and as inspiration that arises in my soul...I will hold fast and I will move forward in faithfulness to You. I lay before you my prayers for healing for this broken and pain-stricken world. I ask for hope to prevail over the darkness that seeks to consume your beloved creation. Make me an instrument in this pursuit to overcome darkness with hope. Make me a lamp that carries and shines your light into the darkness. I offer prayers for this week's VBS. May this ministry touch, plant seeds and help shape the lives of children to be living instruments of peace in their everyday lives. I offer prayers for our church and for our denomination...seeking Your light to guide us as we work to help do our part in building your kingdom of love in our community and world. I know I ask a lot from you; but I know you don't mind. So, I trust you with my prayers from the heart...knowing you hear and answer my prayers. Amen.
It’s that time of year when many of us think about taking vacations. I know, Don and I have made some plans for vacations that we are looking forward to taking. It is a time to get away from the day-to-day routines of life; to relax and rejuvenate our bodies and spirits. Even those who are retired can benefit from a change in scenery, or at the very least, a change in routine.
The Leadership Team has lifted the mandatory mask guideline. We encourage anyone that wants to continue to wear a mask to do so. We will remain every other pew for in person worship, and ask that you continue to follow social distancing and other guidelines that are in place. You may refer to the printed weekly announcements for the current Covid-19 guidelines.
