New this week – March 15, 2020

From the Board of Stewardship

Who are you serving? Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. You cannot serve both God and money” (Matthew 6:24). Either we follow God’s way or our own. There is no middle ground.  And, of course, God’s way leads to glory everlasting. What’s better than that?
Prayer:  Dear Jesus, You are the King of glory, the Lord over all the universe.  I pray that You will strengthen me to serve you only.  Lead me from the temptation to serve anything other than you.  In your name I pray.  Amen.

Change in Distribution

After considerable discussion, the Pastoral Staff and Elders have decided to change the distribution of the bread (wafers).  Due to health concerns, we will no longer put the wafer directly in a person’s mouth.  Please hold your hand out to receive it.
