Written by Kaitlyn Jacobs from Holland, Michigan

We thank you, Lord for this community.
A community where we can express our
hopes, joys, laments, and tears together.

And while we voiced many today,
we know some of us carry unspoken burdens.
We know many of us carry the weight of our work and home life,
whether they be simple stresses or complex, difficult situations.

Help us not to diminish the burdens,
but lift them up to you,
give them the weight they deserve,
and navigate them with Your help and strength.

May You be with us and guide us as we continue on.
May we offer our worship beyond this space and into the spaces we go,
and may it be a sweet offering to You.

And so we join our voices, singing your praise in our worship and in our work.  May you be glorified, now and forever.  Amen.

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow
Praise God all creatures here below
Praise God above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
