THE LORD’S PRAYER
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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

BENEDICTION
May the God who created a world of diversity and vibrancy go with us as we embrace life in all its fullness.

May the Son who teaches us to care for stranger and foreigners go with us as we try to be good neighbors in our communities.

May the Spirit who breaks down our barriers and celebrates community go with us as we find the courage to create a place of welcome for all.

SUGGESTIONS FOR WORSHIP:

*If you have multiple people in your household, watch together on the largest screen in your home.

*You may share private prayer concerns with Pastor via email to pastor@lansingunited.org. Include the subject line “Prayer Concerns.”
