Today we praise God for all the children of God in our midst, especially the youth of our church.

We thank Keiana Kreitz for preaching the sermon today.

We thank Michael Shapley for serving as liturgist.

We thank Dylan Gamble and Keiana for singing our offertory hymn.

And we thank all the youth in our church family for their participation over the year.

May the Father of us all bless you and keep you safe!
