OUR RESPONSE TO ALL GOD HAS BEEN DOING…
*SONG “Graves into Gardens”
With God’s help, we resolve to see with new eyes the wonders of God’s creation and the significance of life, and to look on God’s gift of life with appreciation and gratitude. We are to be ministers of the gospel, the good news of redemption and life.
With God’s help, we resolve to exercise sensitivity and support to those whose lives face formidable challenges, coming alongside individuals and their family members, such as those who face crisis pregnancies; those in prison, those experiencing mental illness, notably in severe forms such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia; and those experiencing grinding poverty.
With God’s help, we resolve to educate ourselves about the way the world experiences the culture of death; the ways we can respond as promoters of life by praying, serving, and giving (such as to Covenant World Relief, short-term mission trips, and The Women’s Care Center).
OUR TIME TOGETHER IS OVER. LET THE SERVICE BEGIN!
*SING TO THE LORD “My Life Is in You, Lord”
