Loving and gracious God, we are grateful for the continued abundance of blessings to our community of St. John’s. Now, as you call us to strengthen the foundation of the future and preserve our legacy, remind us that you are our hope. Send us your grace that we may have hearts that are both generous and open to your will. Guide us and bless us, so that generations to come may continue to grow together with Christ in this holy place. We ask this, and all things, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
