Prayer of Thanksgiving 

Father, we place an offering upon your altar. We offer our treasure not to be seen, but to be serving; not to be pious, but to be faithful; not to be righteous, but to be humble; not to be hypocritical, but to be obedient; not to be receivers, but to be givers. For where our treasure is, our hearts will be also. Amen.

Affirmation of Faith (UMH 882)

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
