Weekly Order of Worship

Lord’s Day 45, November 11, 2018

Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, your holy temple. (Psalm 65:4) Your being here today is a work of powerful divine grace – God chose you and brought you here! Without His work, you would neither know nor worship God. May His sovereign grace bring Him praise from our hearts and mouths.

A hearty welcome to our visitors! We pray that God will bless you in our midst as we worship Him together. Please join us after the worship services for refreshments and fellowship.
