ANNOUNCEMENTS

A warm welcome to everyone who joined us at our worship services today.  What an opportunity for us to come to worship and sing praises to our Lord for what He did for us on the cross.  Thank you, Lord!

Pastor Appreciation Potluck: There will be a potluck to celebrate Pastor Appreciation Month on today at 11:15 a.m.  (There will be no coffee, and we’ll start Sunday School at 10:30 so the potluck can begin at 11:15.)  If your last name begins with A-H bring a main dish, I-Q dessert, and R-Z salad. Table service and drinks will be provided.

Tonight Rev. Carl Gearhart will bring God's Word to us.  Come, join us in worship.

Next Sunday evening Rev. Stephen Wynja will lead us in worship.
