we wonder at the way you call women and men
into partnership with you
for the sake of your saving purposes for the world.
You call us in Christ and empower us by your Spirit,
so that your church may be built up
and your gospel proclaimed and lived.
We thank you for Angie
whom you have called to serve you within this church.
We give you thanks for all you give us through HER,
for their following of Jesus and their willingness,
by your grace, to serve together.
As we commission them for this ministry,
we ask your blessing on HER.
Guide and equip them by your Spirit
that your church may grow in wisdom, love and unity,
and that your name may be glorified,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

as a deacon in this congregation.
May God bless you as you share in the ministry of Jesus Christ.
In all your words and deeds,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God through him.

the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
