Worship Bulletin – October 5, 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.

Call to Worship – based on Psalm 27; John 4:23
Let us worship God, our light and our salvation.
The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.
We desire to live in God’s house and to seek God in his holy temple.
We have come with shouts of joy, to sing and to make music to the Lord.
