Here is our Order of Worship

A Call to Worship link

God of Hope,
we come into your presence this morning
with confidence that you will meet us here.
Where there is sadness, bring joy;
Where there is tiredness, bring refreshment;
Where there is despair, bring a renewed sense of hope.
Let this place be a sanctuary,
a safe haven for us,
a home for holy words and songs and prayers
as we devote ourselves to you.
We pray this in Jesus’ name

A Prayer of Benedict link

Gracious and Holy Father,
Please give me:
intellect to understand you,
reason to discern you,
diligence to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
a spirit to know you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
ears to hear you,
eyes to to see you,
a tongue to proclaim you,
a way of life pleasing to you,
patience to wait for you
and perseverance to look for you.

Grant me a perfect end,
your holy presence,
a blessed resurrection
and life everlasting.

Scripture Reading:  Luke 21:1-4 (NASB Bible Gateway)

And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury. And He saw a poor widow putting in two small copper coins. And He said, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on.”


Phillippians 4:6-7 NASB (Bible Gateway)

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Amen.

  1. “All in”
    Interesting to use a gambling metaphor. I made this statement about my commitment to a church sometime in the year prior my making the decision to leave. (note little c) Looking back I see that when you are “all in” and you lose the hand, the game is over.

  2. Request for prayers. Am going in to surgery tomorrow for kidney stone – 5:45 pm TWW time. They moved it up because I ended up back in the ER yesterday morning, where they took me off percoset and put me on morphine. The stone measured 9mm. I’m a little nervous just because I’ve never been under anesthesia before. Thank you.
