Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

be with us

O Holy God, open unto me:
light for my darkness, courage for my fear, hope for my despair.
O Loving God, open unto me:
wisdom for my confusion, forgiveness for my sins, love for my hate.
O God of peace, open unto me:
peace for my turmoil, joy for my sorrow, strength for my weakness.
O Generous God, open to my heart to receive all your gifts. Amen.
- Howard Thurman

“Love of Jesus, fill us….
Joy of Jesus, surprise us….
Peace of Jesus, flood us….
Light of Jesus, transform us….
Touch of Jesus, warm us….
Strength of Jesus, encourage us….
O Savior, in Your agony, forgive us….
In Your wounds, hide us….
And in Your risen life take us with You,
for Your Name’s sake.”
- Angela Ashwin
