THE SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST (PROPER 22)October 6, 2019
Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

|Shining our Light: Stewardship Season is Here!|
Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. What a blessing and honor to be stewards of what He has given to us! During the month of October, we focus and reflect on what this means. You are invited to begin this season with prayer and gratitude. Stay tuned for more stewardship letters, testimonies and devotionals.
