INVOCATION

Holy God, we are awed by your power, humbled by your mystery, astounded by your glory. We cannot help but respond in worship, at once prayerfully silent and yet bursting with unrestrained praise and joy. We celebrate you as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer. We trust in your sovereign purposes, we take refuge in your strength, and we rest in your perfect love for each one of us and for the world. We place ourselves in your presence during this hour that you may speak and impart your wisdom and your will to us. We thank you that you still speak to your people and we ask that you grant us the courage and grace to respond in faith and obedience. Amen.

PRAYERS AND OFFERING

OFFERTORY PRAYER: Father, you have blessed us beyond measure, and you have called us to worship. May our gifts flow from hearts of worship to the One who provides all we need. May we never forget that all we have is yours. Take it and use it according to your will. Amen.
