During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Give us this day our daily bread. You said You would supply all my needs

Representative Text

Give us this day our daily bread.
You said you would supply all my needs
according to your riches.
I have but to ask and I shall receive.
To go from here and share this love you gave to me,
to show someone who's lost and help them find their way,
the way to truth and faith so they can be free like me,
free like me. Lord, we need your love.
Lord, we need your peace.
Lord, we need your joy
Thank you for this day.
Lord, we thank you for this day.
