Benedictions: Contemporary

Know that we never walk alone - know the comfort of Christ walking beside us. Feel His presence each moment of each day. Amen.

As we go from this place today, let us never forget that Christ is at the foundation of all we are and all we do. Let the world see that we are Christians - be proud to show the world who we belong to.

May the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, equip you with all you need for doing His will. May He produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, all that is pleasing to Him. Jesus is the great Shepherd of the sheep by an everlasting covenant, signed with His Blood. To Him be glory forever and ever: Amen.

The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord; the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be amongst you and remain with you always.
