Doxology & Dedication
Prayer of Dedication:
Heavenly Father, each day we live from the abundance You make available to us.  Please forgive us for the times we take Your blessings for granted.  Receive our offering for the expansion of Your kingdom work.  May it bring change in Your world where it’s so much needed.  Amen.

The Prayers of the People & The Lord’s Prayer
Ask for prayers for people and then pray…Loving Heavenly Father, we thank You that You love us far more than what we can ever imagine and that You will do more through us than what we can think.  Help us to be available when You need us to be Your instruments.  Bless us, the family of Langley Presbyterian Church to make a difference in our community.  Give us a clear vision of what You expect from us.  Thank you that we can bring before You at this time          and         . Answer all of their needs as only You can do.

Father, we continue to pray as Your Son taught us when we say…

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

The grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the love of God our Father and the companionship of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
The grace of Jesus Christ, our Lord, the love of God, our Father, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you, now and forevermore.  Amen.

Choral Amen:  Amen, Amen, A—men

May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
Grant us peace, perfect, peace, Courage in every endeavour.
Open your eyes and see his face, Know his grace forever.
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.

Confirmation Vine Banner – (Hanging in the Chancel)
Symbolism: The base of the serpentine vine contains the work of the Holy Spirit. At confirmation, the dove renews the flame of faith that springs from the vessel containing the blue waters of baptism. The middle loop, the Christian continues to grow in their faith through communion (chalice & wafer) and extends to others the love of Christ (cross & hook equals fishers of men). The top portion, the Bible offers the promise of new life with God in heaven after death (butterfly).

With gratitude – Our warmest “thank you” to Debbie Margueratt for taking the time each season to arrange the banners. We are blessed by your years of dedication to Langley Presbyterian Church and our church family.
