Prayer of Thanksgiving
O God, Jesus taught that where our treasure is, there will our hearts be also.
In this hour, we come bringing our treasures—
all that we have and all that we are.
We come seeking your treasure—
treasure that does not fade, decay, or disappoint.
Share with us the treasure of heaven, that we may boldly share it with others. Amen.

Next Sunday is the UMCOR Sunday
For more than 50 years, United Methodist congregations have been taking part in a special UMCOR Sunday offering, laying the foundation for UMCOR’s ministry of relief and hope.
Donations UMCOR receives through this offering help cover the costs of doing business. Gifts like yours make it possible for UMCOR to use 100% of all other contributions on the projects our donors specify, instead of on administrative or fundraising costs.
South Avenue and Mifflin Avenue Churches make up the WILKINSBURG CHARGE.
South Avenue Church worships Sundays at 10am
Mifflin Avenue worships Sundays at 11:15am
Folks are encouraged to attend whichever worship service is most convenient for them.
