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 trespasses,

as we forgive those, who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory,

forever. Amen.

THE GIVER’S PRAYERin unison —————————–Debra Stephenson

God may your Holy Spirit warm my heart and cause me to share my blessings with others. I am grateful for your love Lord Jesus. Amen.

OFFERTORY PRAYER ————————Margie Tetzloff

Loving God, as we bring our tithes and offerings to you, we pray that our giving continues to point to the Christ who comes in love and compassion, with more concern for those who don’t have enough and little concern that those who have so much will get more. May our giving in this season reflect our hope for a new kind of kingdom to reign in our world. We pray this in the name of the Messiah, Jesus our Savior. Amen. (Mark 1:1-8)
