Let us all pray and thank the Lord:
God of our past, who was and who has been our sure foundation, we praise and honor you for
your goodness and your loving kindness. We thank you for all the forty years that you have
guided this church; for all the experiences that led us to where we are right now. For all the
shaping, including all the breaking, that molded us to be your people devoted to you alone. Thank you for your faithfulness that led us through four decades of meaningful journey.
… for giving us our daily bread
and giving us satisfaction in all that we enjoy.
… for keeping us safe throughout various storms,
earthquakes and even political rumblings.
… for leading our families through every season.
… for miracles that broke through.
… for relationships that have been restored.
…for lives that have been changed.
