Thank you for being here to join us in worshipping the Lord in spirit and truth. We long to give Him a sacrifice of praise today. Our goal is to be a body of believers, uniting in truth. If you don’t already have a home church, we would love to have you with us each week. Along with our mid-week service on Tuesdays, we also have small groups on Tuesdays. We are certain that we have something suited for you.

Words for Life
I was thinking about the Youth Service that we had at the beginning of August. As we were preparing for it, I knew that it would be a completely different type of service than what we are used to. But, then, I thought maybe that’s what worship is all about. I was reminded of David. Psalm 40:3 NLT says, “He gave me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.” You know, I love Mexican food. At times, I feel like I could eat it for every meal. But, I know that no matter how good it is, after several meals, it would become mundane. Maybe God longs to hear a fresh song from you-for you to forget about the “old” way of doing things. Begin anew. Isaiah 43:18-19 says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Our spirit cannot thrive on past blessings. Bless God in a new way and see what new thing He has in store for you.
The nursery is staffed by one adult and one young adult and will be available during the sermon portion of the service.
