the Butterfly. Just as a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, Jesus wants
to transform us from sinners into new creations in Christ.

has come. The old has gone, the new is here.”
II Corinthians 5:17

you for being with us today and sharing your testimony in song!
A PRAYER GROUP will meet following the service in the sanctuary
to pray for Pastor George & Connections, and the needs and vision at
Grace Reformed Church.
