Dedication of new paraments:

Family member: We present these paraments to be consecrated to the glory of Almighty God and for service in this church in loving memory of Marilyn McIntosh.

Pastor:  We accept the gift of these paraments as a sacred trust and will guard and use them reverently in loving memory of Marilyn McIntosh.   In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit we consecrate this gift to the  glory of God.  May the memory of the righteous be ever blessed.

Let us pray:  Most loving God, without you no words or works of ours have meaning.  Accept the gifts of our hands as symbols of our devotion.  Grant us your blessing, as we have consecrated this gift to your glory, that it may be an enduring witness before all your people, and that our lives may be consecrated in your service;  through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
