Offer your heart and mind toward praising and seeking God today. Trust that you are on Holy ground because the Lord, your God, is present. Through our worship, may we grow toward 'becoming and helping others become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.'
When life feels unsettled, upside down, when the way is unclear, the heart of trust says with Jesus, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” I surrender. I trust you with my need to control, my need to know what the future holds, my desire to be in charge of my own destiny, my own security. Help me to jump, Lord… into your arms. To know you’ve got me.
HOW WILL YOU RESPOND
RESPOND IN PRAYER
Creator of the universe, you made the world in beauty, and restore all things in glory through the victory of Jesus Christ. We pray that, wherever your image is still disfigured by poverty, sickness, selfishness, war and greed, the new creation in Jesus Christ may appear in justice, love, and peace, to the glory of your name. Amen.
RESPOND IN GIVING
Trusting in God with all we have, we give to support the work of God's church because we believe in our mission to share God's love with our community and world in the name of Jesus. Give online or by mail. Giving allows us to keep being the church, even in the absence of our physical presence. (411 Market Street, Wilmington, NC 28401)
RESPOND IN REFLECTION
  • "Trust is not about a map; it’s about a relationship.” What kind of answers do you ask from God before you are ready to trust?

  • “Trust believes that God is at work, even if we think we can’t see him.” Where have you seen God at work lately?

  • “Trust is the courage to embrace acceptance.” To trust that we are loved, just as we are, and to live out of that love. Where does God’s love for you need to overflow into someone else’s situation today?
RESPOND IN FAITH
God desires to have a relationship with you! He has given us ways to know Him better through His son, Jesus Christ. Knowing God and having faith in Jesus is a personal and individual decision for each person. Do you have questions about beginning in a relationship with God? We would love to talk with you and help you begin or deepen your faith journey.
