Offertory Prayer Rev. Shana Dry

All: Loving and welcoming God, we have come through a time in our lives when, for many months, we sheltered in our homes: working from home, learning from home, worshiping from home. As we bring our tithes and offering to you this morning, you open our minds to a wider definition of home and a broader definition of family. May the gifts we give today find their way to home projects: ways this world can feel like a safer, more loving home to all your children. In Christ’s holy name, we pray. Amen.

Doxology Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow UMH# 95

Benediction Rev. Shana Dry

Give aid and be willing to receive it, trust and be trusted, forgive and be forgiven, give respect and be respected, love and be willing to be loved.

ALL: And also with you.

Did you know there is no Cherokee for the English word good bye? Instead, we use the word donadagohvi which means “til we meet again.”

Thank you so much Church for your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness to Christ love over these last five years as my time as your Lead Pastor. I wish you the best in your next chapter with Pastor Shana.

Thank you so much for all the cards and gifts at our going away reception they mean a lot to our family, and we will put it all to good use as we make our way to Castle Rock, Co.

So, until we meet again. God loves you and so do we.
