Closing Benediction: Romans 15: 13

As we leave this place,
and scatter back out into the world,
may the God of hope—
who loves us and gave himself for us—
fill us with all joy and peace
as we trust in Him,
today and throughout the coming week,
so that in believing,
we may abound in hope,
through the love of Jesus Christ,
and the power of the Holy Spirit.
