Welcome to today's service

"Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
   your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
   your justice like the great deep.
   You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!"

Psalm 36

Prayer

Heavenly Father, we bow our hearts to You and pray.

We give You thanks for all You've done.

Thank You for being our refuge and strength.

Thank You for all Your goodness and for being faithful to us.

We give thanks to You that no matter what the circumstances,

we can count on You.

So we turn from human enterprise to your Kingdom,

from human failure to Your forgiveness,

from human weakness to Your strength,

from human focus to the purpose of You our Lord and King.

We praise Your name, and rejoice in Your amazing love. Amen

Bible Reading: Matthew 6:1-4

“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

SERMON  

Closing Prayer

Go into your week

with your ears pitched

to the sound of God’s voice calling your name.

Go into your week

with your eyes peeled

for the face of Jesus in unexpected places.

Go into your week

with your soul poised

to receive the Spirit of God,

the Spirit of Peace.
