We issued this invitation two years ago
and today is our turn!

At its best, a worship service is not for us; nor is it about us.  A worship service is better understood as a “Service” of worship – something that we offer as a “service” to our community.  In this sense, our weekly worship service is our weekly mission project for our community.
 
Just as we would not go on a mission trip without adequate preparation, so it is best if we prepare for our weekly worship service as well.  Unite the following information with your prayers, and come to worship prepared to bless our community.
