Spiritual Life Needs Assessment Survey

New Beginning . New Life



God of love and mercy, as we enter into this Season of Advent, we thank you for your great gift of your Child, Jesus Christ, who fills us with all that we need. Merciful God, we are fully aware that not all your children are able to bask in joy or peace during this season. We pray for peace within all walls: walls within our own homes, walls that surround each city and town.

We pray that during this season of Advent we may usher your promise of salvation into our lives and that we may share the Good News of our Savior with others.
We pray that the promise of your birth may be the promise that we live in and share at home, at work and at school. May we be moved to compassion and action in your name. Let us continue to seek a just world for all as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus the Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.

Will Your Church be a 5 for 5 Congregation?
