Silent Centering Prayer
We are in the presence of your creation, under the sky and upon this sacred ground that you made for us. Be in and through our worship in this hour. Be in and through our bodies, our minds, and our spirits, as we seek to bring you worship and praise. For your presence in our lives we give thanks, in the name of your son, our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

Celebrating Our Giving
Serving Christ at Home and in the World
As we leave this sacred space, allow us to realize the full weight of our mission. You send us out into a hurting world. May our words, actions, and very presence, bring comfort, healing, and hope. May we rest in the power that you give us. May we hold you in our hearts, as we share with others how you have touched our lives. In Jesus’ name we offer this prayer. Amen.
We are sent out into the mission field
