 ~ Diapers can be made from flannel or even by recycling t-shirts                                                                    (pattern can be found at church office)

Why Worship?

Middle school retreat 008 

 

If someone asked you that question, how would you answer?  Is it important to worship each week, or is it alright to just go once in a while? How do you feel when attend worship and is there a difference when you leave worship?

When God ordained us to worship on the Sabbath he did so that we might have rest and relaxation on at least one day after a busy week of work and activity.   God wanted us to reconnect with him and all of creation.  God wants us to worship him and for us to know how much he loves and cares for us.

Our “Mark of Discipleship” this week is Worship!  Worship God every day and Worship with us on Sunday! 

Love Like Jesus!

See you Sunday! 

Pastor Brenda

“O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Creator! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.”

 Psalm 95:6-7
