A message from Karla Reiland.
Make the sign of the cross (Touch forehead, then heart. Touch one shoulder, then the other.) As you make the cross say, “Love God, Love Neighbor”
Offering: Will you make an offering today? We’re sending a check and a little happy note to the church office 🙂
Sing: Thank you, God for giving us life. Thank you, God for giving us life. Thank you, God for giving us life. Right where we are! (Sing as many verses as you like, changing the underlined word to anything you are thankful for.)
Pray: The Lord’s Prayer
