Sunday Worship at 9:30am, Spiritual Growth Minutes at 9:08am
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! To know Christ in faith is the meaning and purpose of this life. Jesus tells the parable of a “fool” who thought the amount of material possessions he had were what gave his life value. The writer of Ecclesiastes and Paul also warn against letting the things of this world blind us to our real goal—eternal life.

Forgive Us, Lord, #482
Psalm of the Day
Psalm 34, page 80 in the front part of the hymnal
Chasing after things in order to give purpose to our lives will result in the Teacher's lament: “Everything is meaningless.” The key to being content is recognizing that all things come “from the Lord our God."
Hymn of the Day
What Is the World to Me, #477
Prayer of the Day
O God, you reveal your mighty power chiefly in showing mercy and kindness. Grant us the full measure of your grace that we may obtain your promises and become partakers of your heavenly glory; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
