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:  Gracious God, we thank you for the peace of good sleep and for keeping us safe throughout the night.  Let this new day be a time of praise and joy as we go out to meet you in our sisters and brothers.  We pray this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

EVENING PRAYER:   Merciful Lord, as night comes to this house, we thank you for the challenges and accomplishments of this day.  Give our hearts and minds the comfort now to rest in your care, trusting that whatever tomorrow brings, your hand will be ready to catch us if we fall.  Amen.

Question for Reflection

How is your faith strengthened by knowing that we do not look for Jesus in only one place but find the Risen One everywhere, because he has ascended to the throne of God?

 YOUTH GROUP NEWS: 

YOUTH GROUPS ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  KEEP CHECKING BACK FOR WHEN THEY WILL RESUME.  GOD BLESS EVERYONE!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 

                                                                            Matthew 19:14            

Do you have a school aged child or grandchild?  Please consider signing them up to attend our youth program.   For each group, CSPC provides a healthy snack, different ways to learn about Jesus in the weekly lessons and crafts or activities   to help reinforce the lessons.  Mary has a way of telling the stories of Jesus on the child’s level, they all are tuned into her as she tells the story.

Would you like to become involved in the youth programs?  Volunteers are always needed to help.

See Mary to sign up!  Youth groups will be starting up soon, be thinking of how you can become involved.  The children are picked up from school on the CSPC bus, and transported to the church, parents pick them up here after group meetings.
