Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Lord Jesus, help me to believe and to have the courage to proclaim the Gospel to everyone I meet.  Amen.

You can help pick next year’s Scripture theme.

Submit your idea to Mr. Lieske along with your thinking about why it would be a good Scripture theme for next year. Email your suggestion or drop it off in the administration office before the end of the month.
