During this time, ushers will pass out the friendship pads. Please sign your names and welcome those who are sitting next to you after the service. PRESENTATION OF OUR FIRST FRUITS Offertory:

Next Week What is the chief end of humankind? A person’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever! The Westminster Catechism proclaims this amazing truth – you were made to worship and to enjoy God’s presence. All of life, our character, our attitudes, our actions grow out of our basic understanding of worship. Come next week for an extended time of prayer and worship and a chance to explore this wonderful part of being human: WORSHIP! This is a perfect week to invite your family and friends.

“I Will Sing the Wondrous Story”

DOXOLOGY AND PRAYER (please stand) Ushers will bring the offering forward as we commit our gifts to be used to further the Kingdom of God throughout our community and the world.
