6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God made it grow. 7 Because of this, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but the only one who is anything is God who makes it grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together, but each one will receive their own reward for their own labor. 9 We are God’s coworkers, and you are God’s field, God’s building. 10 I laid a foundation like a wise master builder according to God’s grace that was given to me, but someone else is building on top of it. Each person needs to pay attention to the way they build on it. 11 No one can lay any other foundation besides the one that is already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:6-11
The foundation has been laid for us according to God’s grace. We are called to build on it. Jesus’ final direction to his disciples was “Go make disciples!” – Go! Each of us is called to share our faith in unique ways.

The Purpose of Prayer is that God’s desires may be demonstrated on earth. When we pray, God’s will shall be done.
The Privilege of Prayer. Jesus says to ask and it shall be given, seek and we shall find, knock and the door will be opened.
Who will separate us from Christ’s love? – Romans 8:35a
We pray for all those struck by the tornadoes last week that tore through a 250-mile, six state swath bringing destruction and devastation to the Kentucky region. — Lord hear our prayer.
We pray for an end to gun violence. At the last annual conference session, members adopted a resolution declaring gun violence a public health emergency and calling on every congregation to “enter into meaningful conversations and action.”In light of the ongoing violence, all United Methodists are called to prayer. “We draw closer to God and all we love, resisting feelings of helplessness and hopelessness in the face of more senseless gun violence. We are resilient disciples, and the God we serve gives us the strength to overcome,” said Bishop LaTrelle Easterling. — Lord hear our prayer.
But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. – Romans 8:37
A Prayer by Bessie Porter Head:
I believe God answers prayers
I am sure God answers prayers
I have proved God answers prayers
Glory, glory to his name.
We’d love to have you join us!
