Offertory Hymn: VU# 537 Your Work, Oh God…
Your work, O God, needs many hands
To help you everywhere
And some there are who cannot serve
Unless our gifts we share.
Because we love you and your work,
Our offering now we make:
Be pleased to use it as your own,
We ask in Jesus’ sake.

may the love of God surround you everywhere
