Sharing of the Word


As a part our service today, we will share stories and read scripture. Todays message from Owen Cayton is What a Friend We Have in Jesus based on John 15:9-17 and Acts 10:44-48.

Joys, Concerns and Pastoral Prayer Gods heart is always open to Gods people and so we are called together to lift celebrations and concerns in prayer. God joins us in our deepest moments of pain and our greatest moments of joy...and everything in between. We take this time to pray for ourselves, the church, and the world in word and song. Sharing of Ourselves and God in Thanksgiving At the table of God, we offer ourselves and the work of our hands in service to God and the church in the world. In thanksgiving, we bring financial gifts as well as gifts of time and energy and sometimes other gifts like food for the food panty. We also bring bread and cup to place on the table. Communion is observed weekly. This is Christs table and all believers in Him are invited partake. If you wish to participate, please come forward at the invitation to the table. Communion is served by intinction (dipping your bread in the chalice).
