Joyful Noise – the Crop Walk
(Instead of asking our children to take the Joyful Noise, we will keep our Joyful Noise bucket in the back of the sanctuary for you to share your offerings before or after the service. We will take this time each month to introduce the Joyful Noise with our children and the congregation).
Prayers of the People
Pastoral Prayer/Lord’s Prayer
Offerings our Gifts/Remembering God’s Gifts
(Instead of passing our offering plates during worship, they will remain in the back for you to share your monetary donation before or after the service. At this time, our usher will bring up the gifts we have shared as we share in a moment of silence and prayer of gratitude, for the financial gifts shared for the work of the church as well as the time and talents we share for the church and our greater community).
