Order of Worship



Genesis 44:14-34

“Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’
For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
                                                                                             Matthew 9:13

“The True Gospel of Christ and the False Gospel of Works”
This morning we will examine the true gospel of Christ
exposing the false gospel of works
so that we will truly exalt the Savior and evangelize the lost.

“The True Gospel of Christ and the False Gospel of Works” (Dec 2, 9, 16)
(What to do when Believers Abandon the Gospel)
“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you
in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 
not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you
and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you
a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.”
                                                                                              Galatians 1:6-8

Family Group Ministry
This is where we get to know each other and meet one another’s needs.
Each family group is a diverse group of Christians within our larger church family
who grow together in our love for Christ and His church.

Family groups are for everyone regardless of age, marital status or spiritual maturity.
Each group is a small flock within our flock, a refuge for comfort,
strength and growth led by a biblically-qualified shepherd into fellowship, prayer, singing,
bible study and the practice of each person’s spiritual gifts.
