INVOCATION:

Lord, we are sinful people, living in a sinful world, suffering from our brokenness and separation from you. During this time of worship, we choose to disconnect ourselves from the ways and priorities of the world and to reconnect our focus back onto you. God, we invite you into this time of worship. We invite you into our lives. We pray that our lives will be made faithful in all things. Amen

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE: Joys and Concerns

PASTORAL PRAYER

OFFERING PRAYER:

One way we express our faith is by how we use the resources that have been entrusted to us. God, through this act of worship—through the giving of the fruit of our labor—we declare our faith in your loving care. Lord, search our hearts, and if we are giving out of a sense of wrath, please help us root out this evil. Help us be faithful disciples in all aspects of our lives. Amen.
