Making an offering of our time, talents, and treasure is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. But at the root of everything we do is our relationship with our God. Use these resources to help strengthen your spiritual life.
News & Events
Gracious God, we give thanks for military men and women, both from the past and the present, and for their courageous service and sacrifice to our country and its people to secure the blessings of life, liberty and justice for all. May our remembrance be a timely reminder that our freedom was purchased at a high cost, and should not be taken for granted. Give us resolve to labor in faithful service to you until all share the benefits of freedom, justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
