Benediction: John 20: 24-29

"Peace be with you," Jesus says to us in this room.
"As the Father sent me, so I send you."
No doubt or fear can lock God out of our lives.
Remember that as you leave this place,
sent forward to live by faith.
And may these words echo through your mind, as well:
"Blessed are those who have not seen
and yet have come to believe.
And all God’s people said, "Amen!"
