WELCOME!  

Thank you for joining Grace for worship today. We are glad that you are here. 

Our prayer is that God would bless and guide this time together and that our

worship would be  in Spirit and Truth.

About GRACE  

MUSIC Worship is a participatory experience. We invite you to join us as we praise God through singing by following the on-screen lyrics.

OFFERING We give tithes and offerings as an act of worship, obedience, celebration and thanksgiving to the Lord. We give during the service. If you are a guest you are not expected or obligated to give.

MESSAGE The teaching time seeks to communicate God’s truth in compelling, relevant ways. Feel free to take notes using the space provided, sermon notes.

PRAYER Following our time together this morning, Elders will be available. They are willing to pray with you in response to what God has laid upon your heart after hearing God’s word or because you are having one of those kind of days.
