LITURGICAL RESOURCES

Offering Prayer: God of all power and grace: we have often been overwhelmed by the indifference of the world and have let it discourage us from the work of disciple making and world transforming to which you’ve called us. Remind us once more of the victory of Christ and the victory available to us. As we give our tithes and offerings, may we do so with the confidence of victors, knowing that in your love, grace, and compassion, you will have the last word. We pray this in the name of your Son, who bore our sins and who defeated our death. Amen. (Hebrews 9:11-14, 24-28) https://www.umcdiscipleship.org/resources/offertory-prayers-and-invitation-for-november-2018

Prayer Reflection: Who Could Love Us More?  (Very short, but the spacing seems crucial and is lost when I copy it here, so please go to website.) https://re-worship.blogspot.com/2012/10/prayer-reflection-hebrews-9-11-15.html

Original liturgical resources will be posted here when I get this far; I am behind since my church did not have services on 7/21 due to excessive heat. I hope to have these posted by Tuesday evening, 7/30. https://1drv.ms/w/s!AuB3z496aTHTgal1aLu-13ffpsmjdg
