After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of Him, two by two, into every town and place where He Himself was about to go. And He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Luke 10:1–2

As you lay the burdens of your brokenness at the foot of Christ’s cross, the healing medicine of His Word and Meal fills you with His mercy. The kingdom of God Himself comes to you and your family today as you gather for worship. What peace and joy can be ours when we trust that heaven’s grace is ours to receive!
