Prayers

                                                                          God in Christ Jesus loves you.                                                                                                           May this day in your life be blessed by God.  God loves all people.                                             Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey; you are welcome here.      

                                          We ask God to guide and to bless Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ.                                            May all involved here faithfully serve God’s ministry.

We embrace God’s calling for Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ to live as a faith community affirming and loving all people.  We are seeking to be God’s Living Church.  We rejoice every time a person feels at home and safe here.  Of course, our hope is that this always would be.  In reality, though, there may be times when unconditional love is not what a particular guest experiences here.   In the event this happens, we pray for God’s forgiveness and grace.  We sincerely regret such instances.  But they do occur.  Extending genuine hospitality to all is a Christian pursuit.  As Christ’s followers, we are aware that God is calling us 100% of the time to offer every person grace, hospitality and love.  While this is not be something which we achieve without fail; this is our on-going ministry   –   blessing all who come here with God’s true sanctuary, safety and love.
