O God, Source and Giver of all things, we give You honour and glory.
For the sun and rain, for the manifold fruits of our fields,
For the increase of our herds and flocks, we thank You. 
For the enrichment of our souls with Divine grace, we are grateful.  Amen.

NET MINISTRIES: 
The work of the NET teams is the primary activity of NET Ministries. Each year approximately 150 young adults ages 18-28 volunteer nine months of their lives to serve on the NET teams. These young adults are placed on 14 different teams of 8-14 people. For nine months, these teams become like family for each other as they work side by side sharing what God has done in their lives.
