JOYS AND CONCERNS JACOB NORMANN Dear God, out of the ashes you lifted us up. When we are weary, we know, as you did, we must take a day off to rest. We must recreate to recreate. This will lead us to have renewed spirit to finish the race. PASTORAL PRAYER AND THE LORD’S PRAYER Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen WE OFFER TO GOD OUR TITHES AND GIFTS OFFERTORY
