Whether you are joining us today on-site or online, we certainly want to take a few moments to welcome everyone who is joining us today!
We have said it many times but will repeat it: “We live in challenging times”! At the beginning of 2020, many Grandparents found themselves on the other side of a door or window as you “visited” with your Grandchildren. Your arms ached either to hold your Grandchild or at least to give them a good hug!
But alas, we were told to be sure to maintain “social distancing” and hold back on those natural and God-given instincts.
What a joy it is to gather together to worship on this very special weekend when we recognize and appreciate… work!
It seems that we often lose sight of this weekend as many people simply view it as the final weekend of Summer vacations as school is once again in session. Others may see it as another weekend of cookouts and a day off to celebrate work! (Seems almost ironic doesn't it?)
Well, as we gather to worship today, let's be sure to take a few moments to appreciate the employment we have! Of course, we realize there is really no such thing as “the perfect job” as there are challenges and difficulties that accompany anything that is worthwhile.
We are so glad you have chosen to join us today as we worship the Lord together and have fellowship!
The House of God is such a special place to be. You may have heard people refer to a church congregation as “the body of Christ.” This is because the bible explains us each as individual members of one whole body.
Welcome, Brothers and Sisters in Christ to (NAME OF CHURCH)!
We are so glad you have to have the privilege of worshiping alongside you today in the House of God!
Let’s reflect together on the following scripture from Hebrews 12:28, which says, “Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”
