Welcome to Christ Church
Dear Heavenly Father, we praise you, and we thank you for all the blessings we have received from you, and for the leadership you have provided for this capital campaign. You have poured out your love on this Christ Episcopal Church family, and we respond by sharing that love, as we minister in the communities we serve, and in the world in which you have placed us.
We have felt led by you to renew and restore this building which you have helped to provide for us, and we desire that it may reflect your love and protection upon those who seek sanctuary within these walls, and be a beacon for those who come seeking you.
May this church home be a place of beauty to glorify you and a refuge for renewal of life. May this place of worship bring to all the grace and blessing you show to your people daily. Be with us in these days as we work together, empowered by your Holy Spirit in and among us, to raise the necessary funds to accomplish these goals you have set before us.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
