Invitation to Communion 

Prayer of Confession 

Most merciful God,

I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,

by what I have done, and by what I have left undone.

I have not loved you with my whole heart;

I have not loved my neighbor as myself.

For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ,

have mercy on me and forgive me,

that I may delight in your will and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your name.   AMEN.

From Assistant Treasurer Lynn Sweeney:

Offering Envelopes can be used even if you don’t fill out a pledge card.  Envelopes make it easier to record your donations for tax purposes. Use the white pew card to request envelopes. 

Special Communion Offering Envelopes are included with the bulletin on Communion Sundays.  If you want your gift recorded, please put your name on the envelope. The Communion Fund is disbursed by the Pastor and Deacons to any in our parish or community in need.

Half Year Statement will be sent out by July 6th.  Please check to see that all donations were recorded correctly.

Confidentiality in all giving at MCC is of the utmost importance, your gifts are between you and the Lord.

(If everything is correct please mark “OK” by your name).
