WEEKEND UPDATE

We Seek to Know Christ’s Love and Minister in His Name

*Important Announcement*

Everyone please like our new official page here:

 https://www.facebook.com/Coates-Street-Presbyterian-Church-2470642886504869

We have switched all of our posts and Facebook Live worship services onto this new page.  Once everyone has had a chance to switch over, we will be deleting this old account in order to reduce confusion.

One major benefit of this new page is that there is a new donate button by which you can make donations to the church electronically. It is in a big blue rectangle near the top of the page. If you donate this way you can do one-time donations or set up recurring donations. All money goes directly to us and there are no transaction fees to this process. We hope this creates an easy way for those who worship with us online to contribute to our mission should they feel led to do so.  This may also be an easier way to donate for regular members so that they do not have to remember to write checks but can have regular weekly or monthly giving set up automatically.

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 debts,

as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and glory, forever.

Amen.

MORNING PRAYER:  Holy God, you have called a people to be your family out of every tribe, language, and nation, to love and serve you daily in a world of beauty, complexity, and diversity.  Help us to honor and respect the dignity of difference as we seek to be one with you and each other this day and always.   Amen.

EVENING PRAYER   O Shepherd of all, you have brought us to the close of another day; for this gift and the blessings we now name, we give you thanks…All that we have and all that we are come from you; and so, trusting in the goodness of your divine care, let us lie down this night in peace, that tomorrow we may rise to greet you in a resurrection joy.  Amen.
