             Special thanks to Mrs. Karen Jones

    A warm welcome to you to this worship service. Please
    record your attendance by using the register form in your
    pew. If you are a visitor, please include your address and
    phone number and e-mail address if one is available.

   Before the service begins, take some time in meditation to
   prepare yourself and to offer up your concerns to God.

   Greeting one another is important as we come together.
   But please do so quietly and in a manner that respects those
   who are in prayer.

   A nursery is available during 10:45 service for kindergarten
   and younger.

      Our Vision is to make disciples: to be a community of faith in

                        power of the Holy Spirit.
