Come join us as we find comfort in the places of our deepest pain and learn how to share it with others in ways that help them when they are most in need of comfort and strength themselves.

Merciful God,
we gather together to offer You our praise and thanksgiving
for the unfailing love You have shown toward us,
generation after generation,
and for the compassion You shower upon us, day after day.
You alone are our God.  We are Your people.
We pray that Your Holy Spirit would move among us as we worship.
Open our hearts and our minds to see You at work among us,
encouraging, challenging, uplifting, and inspiring,
as each one has need.
May our worship bring honor and glory to You.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray.
