Unwrap the True Meaning of Christmas
Dec 01, 2019

Emmanuel, God with Us,

We are grateful for the many gifts we give and receive during the holiday season and throughout the year. Most especially, we thank you for the people and relationships we hold dear, the blessings of met needs and YOU. Break through our lives in new and astonishing ways, that we might know and live the true meaning of Christmas. Flood your church with love, generosity and people who need to hear your good news. Embolden us to offer your truth and welcome to all. In your sweet name we pray.

Amen.

Hidden in Plain Sight: The Parables of Jesus
Oct 12, 2019

Christ of Mystery, Wonder and Discovery,

Hidden in plain sight, you are always with me. Help me to dig beneath the surface of my faith and explore my role in strengthening the roots of our relationship. Guide my understanding of your teachings, that I may be challenged, encouraged and inspired toward action. Together with the church, compel me to say YES to loving and feeding our community in body and spirit.

Amen.

Earn.Save.Give.
Sep 07, 2019

Generous Creator,

You are the origin of all that I have and all that is. You are the source of life, love, wisdom and true joy. Help me to find these things in you. Remove the distractions and temptations that keep me from focusing on what matters most. Enable me to earn all I can, that I might be able to adequately provide for those who depend upon me. Help me to save all I can, that I might live comfortably and have enough. Empower me to give all I can so that your Church will live more fully into our mission of making disciples and transforming the world—one day, one issue and one person at a time. Use Community United Methodist Church to make a real difference in the world and show me the way to take a step up and do my part.

Amen.

Animating Faith: Pixar Illuminates Scripture
Jun 29, 2019

Loving Creator,

Before I drew my first breath, you knew me, formed me and claimed me as your own. I yearn for my life to matter. I want to honor and glorify you. Animate my faith, that I might awaken to the continuing, creative work of your Spirit in my heart. Help me to further the mission of Jesus and make the world a better place. Together with the church, enable me to live and proclaim the truth:

“God loves everyone. So do we. No exceptions.”

May it be so.

Amen.

Spring/Summer 2019
May 25, 2019

God of Grace,

As spring gives way to summer, I am reminded of your never-ending desire to gift me with newness of life, abundant blessings and an ongoing relationship with Christ. Help me to cherish and make the most of each day, which includes prioritizing time with you. Break through and even change my opinions, hopes and plans, that my heart and mind might better align with yours. May your dreams become a reality through me and through your church, I pray.

Amen.
