We Make our Offering Together OFERTORY PRAYER: Gracious and Loving God, the gifts that we bring before you are but a token of what we hope to give: a life that denies self and carries a cross, a life that draws others to follow you and that offers our whole selves to you in a way that will transform the world on earth to one that reflects your heavenly kingdom. May what we give this day lighten us for the journey of faith and empower your church to serve you, this day and always. We pray this in the name of our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
