Commission & Benediction
(based on Philippians 2:12-13)
As you leave this place, remember—
the Spirit of God is already at work within you,
giving you both the desire and the strength to do what pleases Him.
So go from here with joy
to love and serve God and one another.
And may the blessing of God,
the love of Jesus Christ,
and the presence of the Holy Spirit
be among you and within you.
