   A LOVING INVITATION

Lord, I bring You my sinful nature as you've revealed it to me.  I know I don't have anything valuable to offer except myself and my love. I can't earn Your forgiveness, but You've offered it as a free gift from Your Son, Jesus Christ.  I accept Your control of my life and I intend to serve You, obey You, and follow You from this moment forward.  You have my past, my present, my future, my family, my money, and my time.  Nothing will I withhold.  Thank You for loving me and forgiving me, and making me Your own.  Amen

 

If you have prayed this prayer, let a pastor or elder know.   We have helpful material to aid you as you grow in your Christian faith

 

NEXT WEEK is First Fruits Sunday. Please bring your non-perishable food items and place them in the cart provided. We will also have our Deacons' Fund Offering.
