Prayer of Preparation

Lord God of Hosts, in whom our fathers trusted: we give thee thanks for all thy servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country. Unite all the people of this nation in a holy purpose to defend the freedom and brotherhood for which they lived and died.  Grant, we beseech thee, that the liberty they bequeathed unto us may be continued to our children and our children’s children, and that the power of the Gospel may here abound, to the blessing of all the nations of the earth, and to thine eternal glory; through Christ thy Son our Lord.  Amen.

We’re so glad to have you with us.  If you’d like for us to get to know you better you can use a connection card located in the seat pocket in front of you and drop it in the offering plate later in the service. Also, be sure to stop at the narthex on your way out for a gift from us. Thank you for coming!

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRAYER TEAM:  Our desire is to pray for your needs.  In an effort to be sure we are doing this in the most effective way, we need your help.  In the future, we will leave names on the list for a period of 3 months.  Any names on the current list that have been there for at least three months will be removed.  If you desire to have your name relisted, please call the church office. 

OUR DAILY BREAD for June, July, and August is available to be picked up in the Narthex.

INVOICES — If you receive an invoice/packing list for something ordered or purchased for the church, please put it in Lori Feil’s mailbox.  It would be extremely helpful if you could write what group or event it is for, so I can make sure the correct account is used to pay it.  I am receiving bills that only list invoice numbers and don’t tell what or whom it is for.  Please feel free to leave me a note in my mailbox or e-mail salemdarmacct@gmail.com with any information or questions.  Thanks so much!  Lori–Accounting
