Therefore thus says the Lord God, 

"Behold, I am the one who has laid a foundation in Zion, a stone,

a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:

"Whoever believes will not be in haste."

Isaiah 28:16

OUR FOUNDATION...

 

ground breaking blessing

 Bishop Thompson praying 

"Therefore, I break ground for this building, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

May the Gospel be preached, 

the Sacraments administered,

and the prayers and praises offered in the place from generation to generation.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

FOREVER...

 

O Lord God of Israel, the heavens cannot contain you,

yet you are pleased to dwell in the midst of your people, and have moved us to set apart a space on which to build a house of prayer: 

Accept and bless the work which we have now begun,

that it may be brought to completion, to the honor and glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy spirit, one God, for ever and for ever.

 REFLECTION ON GIVING

 BE GENEROUS WHEN YOU WORSHIP THE LORD,

AND DO NOT STINT THE FIRST FRUITS OF YOUR HANDS.

WITH EVERY GIFT SHOW A CHEERFUL FACE,

AND DEDICATE YOUR TITHE WITH GLADNESS.

GIVE TO THE MOST HIGH, AS HE HAS GIVEN TO YOU,

AND AS GENEROUSLY AS YOU CAN AFFORD.

  Sirach 35:10-12
