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. Again, thank you for coming!

This week’s prayer:

Almighty God, grant to your Church your Holy Spirit and the wisdom which comes down from heaven, that your word may not be bound but have free course and be preached to the joy and edifying of Christ’s holy people, that in steadfast faith we may serve you and in the confession of your name abide to the end; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
