PRELUDE

"Prelude on Simple Gifts"
Darlene Skinner
SILENCE

Set a timer for 5 minutes and use a breath prayer.
On the inhale, pray, "You delight in me..."
On the exhale, pray, "Your love calms my fears."
OPENING PRAYER

Almighty and everlasting God,
in whom we live and move and have our being,
you created us for yourself,
so that our hearts are restless until they find rest in you.
Grant to us such piety of heart and strength of purpose
that no selfish passion may hinder us from knowing your will,
and no weakness from doing it.
In your light may we see life clearly
and in your service find perfect freedom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
OPENING HYMN

SCRIPTURE LESSON

Romans 12:3-8

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

MESSAGE

"Get Rich Quick: Rich in Community"
by Pastor Katie

When we think about riches, we might dream about fancy cars, clothes, or other material possessions wealth can afford us. Our newest sermon series explores what the Bible has to say about true wealth. What does it mean to be rich, not in silver or gold, but in kindness, generosity, faith, gratitude, and community?
FINAL HYMN

"Spirit of the Living God"
Torin Wright & Darlene Skinner
CLOSING PRAYER
Lift our hearts to you, Lord Jesus, that we might by your Spirit’s power be instruments of your mercy, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.
