Announcements – August 18, 2023

My Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This coming Lord’s Day we will take our third and final look at Savior’s convicting question set forth in the words of Matthew 19:4. Our focus will be upon what this question says about human sexuality and marriage.
As we have observed previously, the question posed by our Lord that day takes us into the very heart of all that is under vigorous debate in our world today.  The claims of Jesus, recorded for us in these verses, address directly the most critical matters of all.  Here is God’s authoritative Word on human gender, the gift of sexual intimacy, and the Divine institution and glorious purpose for marriage.
I hope you will pray fervently for the proclamation of our Lord’s Word as we gather before Him this Sunday in worship and adoration.  Pray that the Holy Spirit will empower both the preaching and the hearing of the Word, and that we will have our minds renewed and our hearts reestablished in an ever deepening love for our King!
You are my joy, and I love you more than I could ever express,

If this is your first time visiting our church, please fill out a visitor card and place it in the offerings box at the back of the sanctuary. If you have any needs or would like additional information, please see one of our elders or deacons. Finally, if you require hearing assistance or a pew cushion, please see one of our men in the sound booth at the rear of the sanctuary.

Fall Supper Clubs
Fall Supper Clubs are groups of (usually) 4 couples/singles that meet together once a month from Sept-Dec.  Each couple/single takes one of the months and plans the get-together.–potluck dinner in a home, restaurant, picnic, however you would like to host.  It’s a great way to get to know others in the church on a deeper level and to make new relationships.
