Love is the spirit of this church
And service its law
This is our great covenant

And to help one another

Today's offertory is "Sheep May Safely Graze" ~ J.S. Bach

One of the ways we live our spiritual values in the world is by making them real through the form of financial contribution.  I invite you to enliven your commitment to this community and be generous in giving to support the work of this Congregation during this challenging time.

Every month we also donate funds to a community organization in Lee County. Our Community Sharing partner this month is SalusCare. SalusCare is the most comprehensive provider of behavioral healthcare services in Southwest Florida, incorporated in 2013 after the merger of Lee Mental Health and Southwest Florida Addiction Services (SWFAS). Today, SalusCare employs 400 professionals who provide hope and recovery to nearly 16,000 adults and children in outpatient psychiatry and therapy, residential programs, recovery residences, emergency/crisis services, detox and community-based services from multiple locations in Lee County. No one will ever be denied access to services due to an inability to pay. A sliding-fee scale is utilized for many services based on family size and income.  SalusCare is also a proud National Health Service Corps site.

Extinguishing the Chalice

Allie Carville

We extinguish this flame but not the light of truth,
the warmth of community or the fire of commitment.
These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.


Benediction
