Worship with Us
August 30, 2015

Morning Worship, 10:30 AM, in the Sanctuary or Charter Chapel

Three candidates will be presented for believer's baptism early in the service. Dr. Lee's sermon, "Where to Begin" will be presented as the final message of "Learning How to Pray" based on scripture from Matthew 6.  Musical offerings will include a congregational gospel medley arranged by Hiram Rollo and the Sanctuary Choir's presentation of "My Lord's Prayer."



 *  At a designated time during the Morning Worship Service, FOURS will be guided to Preschool Worship; children in Grades K-4 may remain with their families in the Sanctuary or be guided to "Kids in Christ" in the Music Hall. Please be reminded that you may worship in Charter Chapel, where a live feed of the service is available.

*  If you arrive after the worship service begins, please enter through the front doors of the church.

*  You may access previous sermons by clicking on "Podcasts" on the Shades Crest website's home page.

70 for Christmas

70 for Christmas is the goal for the size of the choir to sing in this year's Christmas program. You might be a person who is willing to help to make that dream come true! Last year we had 64 people. Imagine how great it'll be to raise that number to 70 this year. This Friday evening, August 28, there'll be our Christmas in August dinner/rehearsal. Dinner will be served at 5:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall, followed by the preview of the repertoire for this year's Christmas program in the music suite. Obviously, all choir members are encouraged to participate. However, other people who want to be a part of the Christmas choir are welcome to join us, including people who don't want to necessarily commit to sing in the choir on a weekly basis. There will be special rehearsals for Christmas spread throughout the fall season so that the people in that category will be able to learn the music (without having to practice every Wednesday night, if it's not their desire).


If you desire to come this Friday, please send an email to so we can plan accordingly.
