Build Up

August 2018 Post-Pentecost Worship Planning Series

Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost 2018, Year B

Paul’s writing asserts that Christians are created to live in community with one another. This requires a certain level of spiritual maturity that we can reach only when we act toward one another in the spirit of Christian love. Hence the names for our series: Love. Each week we will focus on the text and how Paul instructs us to act. The first week, we must “Build Up One Another in Love.”

Offertory Prayer

Holy God, source of all good things, you have blessed your children with many gifts, and each of us can serve and help build your kingdom here on earth. We know at times we have denied our giftedness and dismissed the impact our gifts can have. As we ask you to dedicate our tithes and offerings today, we remind ourselves that you seek not only that we open our wallets but open our hearts and our whole being to the work of making your love and compassion the norm, not the exception in this world. We pray this in Christ’s name. Amen. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
