Morning Worship, 10:30 AM, in the Sanctuary or Charter Chapel
Dr. Brian Lee's message, "Upholding Our New Leader's Arms" is based on Exodus 17:1-15 and 18:13-26; this message from the story of Moses will help prepare us for the arrival of our new music minister.
Musical offerings will include the Young Musicians' (Grades 4-6 Choir) Call to Worship, "The Lord Is My Light" and "Lord of All." Also, Ken Berg will sing "The Old Rugged Cross," and the Sanctuary Choir will present "For All Worlds to Hear" as the offertory.
All ages will gather in the Sanctuary for the 10:30 AM worship service; at a designated time, FOURS will be guided to Preschool Worship in Room 125; FIVES through Grade 5 will be guided to the Music Hall for "Kids in Christ" children's worship.
Podcasts of previous messages are available on our website. Click on "Media" to access.

One year ago this week I began my ministry among you. From my perspective it has been a wonderful year. You have fully opened your lives to us and have consistently shared words of encouragement and blessing. Furthermore, you have granted me the privilege of being the person God has created me to be, which means more than you can know. So let me take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done to make our transition to Shades Crest such a smooth one. Clella and I look forward to all that the Lord has in store for us in the future.
