Lenten Prayer of Confession

Lent is a time of humble recognition that we have strayed from 

God in our hearts and that we need to return to the one who 

loves us beyond measure. Each week throughout Lent I will 

print a prayer of confession to help us on our journey with 

God.

Gracious God, we come before you

In need of forgiveness and grace.

You call us to trust in you completely,

But we do not.

We are timid and fearful as we follow your lead.

We justify our actions and words,

Though we know that they are not what you require.

We struggle to understand the new life Christ offers,

Preferring old habits to risky change.

Forgive us, we pray.

Help us to be born again into the life of Christ,

Trusting that you have included us by grace

In the family of God.

In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.

 

Our Daily Bread

The March. April, May issue of “Our Daily Bread” is now available for free in the foyer. This handy guide to the Bible allows the reader to pause each day and think upon the things of God. It is a simple devotional that will bring you blessings. 

 

Discipleship Opportunities

Discipleship Classes are offered every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.  There is a multi-generational adult class that meets in the church library. This class is facilitated by the pastor and follows the same text that he will be preaching on in the worship service that morning. This is a great opportunity to grow in one’s faith, ask questions, and join in community.

 

Invite One

A few weeks back Hector mentioned inviting one person to church. Let’s be in prayer about this. Pray about the person you could invite. Submit their name so that the church can pray over them as well. We have received a number of names, thank you, and you can still submit names in the following weeks. Let’s see who God will add to his church in 2019.
