Word of God.

library. !lder children attending the church service are encouraged to borrow a "oddler "ote filled with activities as you enter
the #anctuary.
Coceri! t"e #acramet of t"e $ltar
We believe that $esus offers %imself to us in the #acrament & %is true body and blood, for the forgiveness of sins. We also
share the scriptural concern for those who participate in the 'ord(s supper that they recogni)e what they are receiving
*+ orinthians ++,-./. "herefore, we ask that all who desire to receive the 'ord(s #upper please carefully examine
themselves using the communion information card found in the pew rack.
ommunion is celebrated on the +
st
and 0
rd
#undays at both services.
For those who desire, we offer gluten-free wafers (please indicate your desire to the Pastor or Elder) and
non-alcoholic wine (located in the inner circle of the individual cup tray).

Practical suggestions to aid @isciples of $esus in taking on the character of $esus,
especially the character attribute of generosity.
%ave you ever considered all you haveL %ave you ever taken an inventory of everything with which you have blessedMnot
just in generali)ations, but also in detailL >or instance, many people are grateful for their health, for their body working as it
should. 5ut have you ever stopped to give thanks for your eyes *and each part of them/ and the marvel of creation they are to
see all you see? for your ears and the ama)ing way in which they work? for your brain that processes all it receivesL We usually
don(t think about all the different parts of our body until something isn(t working, and then, when we are healed, we are grateful.
;f we tried to count all the blessings of body and soul, they would perhaps be too numerous to count. 1nd, that is just one area
of blessingN 1dd in our family, house, work, country, and all the things 'uther describes in the explanation to the first article of
the 1postle(s creed, and counting our blessings becomes a major projectMone in which we would probably never get done.
5ut it doesn(t hurt to dive in and begin to consider a few of the countless blessingsN Dven more importantly, it is essential for
us to consider our incredibly generous God who has blessed us with all of these blessings, purely out of fatherly, divine
goodness and mercy without any merit or worthiness in us. 1nd for all of this, it is our duty to thank and praise, serve and
obey %im, and live generously with all that we have &een given,
%/( ,- %&' 2,N%&: Count Your Blessings
+. "his month, take some time each week to start counting your blessingsN
-. Feep a journal in a notebook or make an ongoing list on your computer or tablet.
0. Work on a different category of blessings each time. Jou can use 'uther(s list found in the >irst 1rticle explanation
or the 'ord(s Prayer 7
th
petition *What is @aily 5readL/ to help you get started.
3. >inally, each week, as you conclude your list of, come up with a way to generously give back based on the blessings
receivedMboth counted and not countedN Hecord the generosity idea as well as how it was implemented. Jou might
even add to your notes the further blessings you received from your generosityN
