Offertory Prayers and Invitation for April 2018

Glorious God, we rejoice in Jesus’ victory over death! You raised him up to live forever. He left behind his linen wrappings-- the shroud, his grave clothes. Robed in white, Christ leads us from darkness to light. Help us to follow him, leaving behind the things of our past that obscure our horizons. We dedicate these offerings as tokens of the breaking dawn of Christ. May our gratitude shine forth by joyfully giving of our earthly goods. Amen. (John 20:1-18) Offertory Prayers and Invitation for April 2018 »

Offertory Prayers and Invitation for March 2018

Gracious God, we praise you! You revealed your love for the world in Jesus’ self-offering on the cross. It is a mystery: the sinless One died to save guilty humankind. We are grateful that you speak by your Word and Spirit, through pastors and teachers, to help us receive this gift. May we live with a deeper understanding of true foolishness and wisdom. We present our offerings to you, so that those who are weak in the world will be made strong through our church’s ministries. We pray in the name of Christ, who died and is risen indeed. Amen. (1 Corinthians 1:18-25) Offertory Prayers and Invitation for March 2018 »
