Holy Lord, we the community of St. Michael’s give thanks to you for opportunities, past and present, to worship, study, and proclaim the
good news of Jesus Christ. We thank you for the gifts of hospitality and fellowship as we grow in love and respect for each other.
While we prepare our hearts and minds in anticipation of our 300th anniversary celebration, we lift our hearts in gratitude to you, O Lord, for our forefathers and mothers who helped prepare the way for us. For their worship traditions, devotion, service and care of our beloved Church and property, for these and all your blessings, we give you thanks.
We pray that your Holy Spirit will guide us now in the ministry of fundraising and celebration. Trusting in your love, help us to provide
this community with a safe, accessible and welcoming church home where we may worship, sing, study and listen to your voice, as we
face the challenges of our day. Help us meet new opportunities with courage, love and adoration. We ask this in the name of our Lord and
savior, Jesus Christ. AMEN.
