Nine youth and four adults departed for Los Angeles today to serve the homeless population there through several wonderful organizations. Join us in worship on August 14 at 7:45am & 10:15am to hear them share their experiences, reflections, and more.
Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
