Prayer of Confession

God, we often fall into a rut when calling out to you. Forgive the littleness of our understanding. You are bigger than we can comprehend and more glorious than we can imagine. Inspire us with the mystery and majesty of knowing you, our Triune God. Amen.

Prayer of Thanksgiving 

O God, you have blessed us with many things. Yet, you invite us to place our faith in eternal, heavenly things. Today, we return to you one type of earthly possession – money. In giving, we accept your invitation of the true security that is offered through your son, Jesus Christ. We pray in the name of God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Affirmation of Faith (UMH 884)   

We believe in the one God, creator and sustainer of all things, Father of all nations, the source of all goodness and beauty, all truth and love. We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, our teacher, example, and Redeemer, the Savior of the world. We believe in the Holy Spirit, God present with us for guidance, for comfort, and for strength. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, in the life of love and prayer, and in grace equal to every need. We believe in the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments as the sufficient rule both of faith and of practice. We believe in the church, those who are united in the living Lord for the purpose of worship and service. We believe in the reign of God as the divine will realized in human society, and in the family of God, where we are all brothers and sisters. We believe in the final triumph of righteousness and in the life everlasting. Amen.
