PRAYER

God of compassion, God-with-us,

be with us in these times of uncertainty.

Break into our lives, rekindle our hope

and breathe love into our communities,

that we might find new ways

of supporting and upholding one another,

bearing witness to your inclusive love

of family, friend, neighbour and stranger alike.

May our love for those most vulnerable in our community become a beacon of hope for all.

In faith, hope and love, in the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen

Rev Denise Liersch.

COIN JAR PROJECT

We are charged with the same task as those first disciples. Because we know Gods love and grace, it is our great desire to share it with others. In who we are, in what we say, in what we do, we witness Gods love to those around us. We are disciples, learners of the way of Christ. And we are apostles, messengers, evangelists, who tell and show and live the Way. In prayer and discernment we seek Gods will for us, individually and as a church. Bronte Wilson
