To Our Guests: We are excited that you chose to join us in our worship and praise to God. Information about our services and ministries is available at the Visitors Center located in the downstairs foyer. Drop by the Center and receive a tape or CD of the sermon. Before you leave this morning, please take a few moments to complete a visitor’s card (located in the pew racks); it may be placed in the collection tray or left on the pew. Taking Communion: We observe the Lord’s Supper each Sunday. As we eat the bread and drink the fruit of the vine, we share in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. We are reminded of the great love God has for us by remembering the price Jesus paid for our salvation from sin. Contribution: Each Sunday we pass collection plates for financial gifts to the ministry at Crestview Church of Christ. As our guest, you are under no obligation to contribute. Responding: We invite everyone who desires prayer or spiritual counsel or who desires to be baptized into Jesus’ death and resurrection to come to the front of the auditorium during the song immediately following the message.
