Welcome

Welcome to our Online Worship.   The title of my message for today is "Choose Wisely."   The scripture is Proverbs 1:1-7.   We are called to be wise in little things, as well as big things.  If we want to have biblical wisdom, the author says we need to be able to receive instruction, be prudent, and to "fear" the Lord, to reverence him.   "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. submit all your ways to him and he will make your paths straight."  May we submit to God today as we worship Him.

Call to Worship


Opening Prayer

O God, we come with open hearts to hear your ancient words, holy words that you have spoken for centuries and still speak to us today.  Open our ears to hear.  Give us the mind of Christ to understand.  May we worship in spirit and in truth.  Change us, O God, and transform our heart and minds and conform our lives to your purposes and plan.  Thank you for your presence in our lives.  In the name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.

Our Core Practices



Fish

Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
