Opening Prayer

O God, thank you for this day and for the opportunity I have to worship you.   Open my eyes, open my ears and open my heart to receive what you have to say to me in these next few moments.  Help me to respond in obedience.  May my worship be pleasing and acceptable to you.  Glorify your name.  Amen.

Our Core Practices


Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
