Close with a Blessing
(Choose one of the following or create your own!)

1) Ask God to continue to bless each other and remind one another that God loves them.

2) May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord’s face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; may the Lord look upon you with favor, and give you peace.

3) Make the sign of the cross and say, (fill in name of person being blessed), child of God, remember you are marked with the cross of Christ and sealed by the Holy Spirit.
