TODAY AT GRACE
It’s ZOO DAYS at DISCOVERY KIDZ! This week: It’s all about
the Zookeeper. God is our creator and caretaker. The Shepherd who loves his people so much he would die for them.
Memory Verse this week:
“I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
OUR SPECIAL MUSIC is presented by Hermina Feikema. We thank
you for being with us today and sharing your testimony in song!
THE SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of August is designated for
WORDS OF HOPE. Words of Hope proclaims Jesus Christ
through broadcasting in the languages of the world's peoples.
Along with other partners in ministry they build the church by
winning the uncommitted to faith in Christ and by encouraging
Christians in the life of discipleship. Also, we get the daily
devotionals from Words of Hope free of charge! This special
offering will be received today.
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.
