Joy's & Concerns
This Tuesday is Election Day. Through this season, keep our nation in your prayers.
In this day, keep in prayer those who have lost folks they love and care for, as we remember them on this All Saint's Day

Start the next video, and enter into a time of prayer.
When directed, take a few moments of silent prayer. There will be a pastoral prayer, then you are invited to join in the Lord's Prayer which is below.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen
Today's message comes from our Youth and their recent cookout. This is where they talk about how you roast a marshmallow over a fire.
Today I want you to think of how others have given to you. How did that help you? How did that feel? Now, ask yourself how you can give to someone else, so that they can both be helped, and feel as you did.
Thank you for your continued offerings to the church, and to the many other places around us that you’ve been giving of your time and your money. Remember that you can mail in your offerings, or you can give online. Your gifts and commitment to your faith help us reach out and tell Jesus’ story in so many different ways. Will you pray with me,
God of all generations, as we worship today, we offer our whole selves to you, all that we have and all that we are. Like your saints who have gone before us, we pray that you will help us be bold in our mission and in our witness. May we who have been given so much give freely, ministering in your compassion to the multitudes near to us and far from us; so that one day we may stand amidst the multitude that gathers at your heavenly throne. We pray this in the name of our Savior and Redeemer, Christ our Lord. Amen.
Scripture Reading: 1 Kings 17:8-16
8The LORD’s word came to Elijah: 9Get up and go to Zarephath near Sidon and stay there. I have ordered a widow there to take care of you. 10Elijah left and went to Zarephath. As he came to the town gate, he saw a widow collecting sticks. He called out to her, “Please get a little water for me in this cup so I can drink.” 11She went to get some water. He then said to her, “Please get me a piece of bread.”
12“As surely as the LORD your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any food; only a handful of flour in a jar and a bit of oil in a bottle. Look at me. I’m collecting two sticks so that I can make some food for myself and my son. We’ll eat the last of the food and then die.”
13Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go and do what you said. Only make a little loaf of bread for me first. Then bring it to me. You can make something for yourself and your son after that. 14This is what Israel’s God, the LORD, says: The jar of flour won’t decrease and the bottle of oil won’t run out until the day the LORD sends rain on the earth.” 15The widow went and did what Elijah said. So the widow, Elijah, and the widow’s household ate for many days. 16The jar of flour didn’t decrease nor did the bottle of oil run out, just as the LORD spoke through Elijah.

Read this prayer from the end of Jude
To the one who is able to protect you from falling,
and to present you blameless and rejoicing before his glorious presence,
to the only God our savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord,
belong glory, majesty, power, and authority,
before all time, now and forever. Amen.
