As a continuation of our Church studies we are going to spend more time on the various areas of Church craft which we listed during The Church - A Deep Dive Study in 2022

We will welcome guest teachers to our sessions and spend time preparing for their visits by thoughtfully considering questions we might like to ask them the week before.

A Thanksgiving prayer for the Church (APBA p.220):

Almighty God, we praise you for the blessings brought to the world through your Church.

We bless you for the grace of the sacraments, for our fellowship in Christ with you and with each other, for the teaching of the Scriptures, and for the preaching of your word.

We thank you for the example of your saints, for your faithful servants departed this life and for the memory of all that has been true and good in their lives.

Number us with them in the company of the redeemed in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
