Welcome to Our Visitors
We are thrilled you have chosen to worship with us this morning. If this is
your first time with us, we are especially happy to welcome you and we hope
you will feel right at home. Our goals this morning are to worship and praise
God, to listen to God’s Word speak to us, and then to go out and live for Him
this week.
Our Sunday School classes are offered from 9:45 – 10:35 for ages 5-12 and
13- adult. If you are a guest, children are welcome in the worship service,
however you may take advantage of our nursery/toddler (ages 0-4) room just
off the foyer. Thank you for coming today.
We at Grace Christian Church attempt to keep “giving” as private as possible
(Matthew 6:1). There is no visible offering taken. A box is provided in the back of the
auditorium. Give as the Lord leads you (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).
The Lord’s Table is observed the first Sunday of each month. If you are born again
of the Spirit of God (John 3:3, Galatians 4:6) and know Jesus Christ from the heart
as Savior and Lord (Romans 10:9), you are welcome to participate in the
communion service. On a practical note, we use grape juice for the Lord’s Tble.
Happy Mother’s Day!
