Worship Bulletin – August 3, 2014
Come and experience the wonders of being the Church! “Ordinary Time,” the period between Pentecost and Advent, is a wonderful movement through which the Church is lead to re-explore the wonders of the Christian faith. During this period we don’t only go over what Christians believe, but what it means for us to believe these things. So that together, as a fellowship, we might better serve our Lord and bless this world.

Lord’s Day, August 3, 2014 – 10:30 AM Worship
Welcome and Announcements
Passing the Peace
Call to Worship – based on Revelation 7:9-10, NRSV
I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands.
They cried out in a loud voice, saying,
“Salvation belongs to our God
who is seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb!”
Today our voices join this ongoing heavenly hymn of praise.
In Jesus’ name, let us worship God.
