Good morning and welcome to our worship service. If you are a guest with us this morning we welcome you and invite you to join in with us as we honor our Creator and Savior.

Today begins our two week prayer and fasting challenge as we lead into Easter and our Grace Offering. Make sure you have a guide that will give you information and ideas about fasting as well as details on the outreach efforts supported by the Grace Offering. The guide is also available online at Our goal is $165,350 which is slightly more than 8 times our average weekly contribution, so we do ask all of you to give generously and sacrificially as we answer the call of Jesus to, “Go and make disciples.” We kick off our Grace Offering with Daisy’s Little Red Wagon which will be rolling down the aisle next Sunday. So, bring those coins and let’s fill up the wagon.

In our sermon time I will be looking at Jesus’ promise to send the Holy Spirit to his people who will equip us to continue His call to us to live as Kingdom people as we also call others to give their lives in submission to the King of kings and Lord or lords.
Two Events for New Members and Guests
