Project 58
This week your donations helped a young family with their electric bill, and also helped provide a church member with travel expenses to relocate closer to family in another state. Project 58 is a church-wide initiative based on Isaiah 58: "Is this not the fast that I have chosen.... Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor that are cast out..." We invite you to fast lunch on Fridays, bring the money you would have spent on lunch to church, and drop the funds in the Project 58 receptacle at church. Project 58 funds are use to help people in need throughout our community. By fasting Friday lunch, in a small but deliberate way, we resist the consumerism of the age. Every week, in the Opportunities to Serve section of the bulletin, you can read about where your Project 58 dollars were put to use.


Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
