Message Rev. Melissa Upchurch
(From A Brief Statement of Faith, PC USA 1983)
We believe there is no condemnation (Rom. 8:1, 28, 38, 39)for those who are in Christ Jesus;
for we know that all things work together for good
for those who love God,
who are called according to God’s purpose.
We are convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor rulers,
nor things present, nor things to
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
Prayers of the People / Lord’s prayer (debts/debtors)

Sharing the Gifts of God
*Prayer of Dedication
God of wilderness and Promised Land, in days of want and days of plenty you have been with us. By these gifts we now share, may others know of your providence and care. Send us – not only our offerings – to console and comfort, to lift up and reach out, to listen and sit beside your children everywhere. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
