Prepare for Worship (12 & 13 Jun 2021)
How have we reflected God's image in the way we have lived this past week?
Call to Worship: Colossians 1:15-17(CSB)
“He is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn over all creation.
For everything was created by him,
in heaven and on earth,
the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities -
all things have been created through him and for him.
He is before all things,
and by him all things hold together."

GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP
We start our new sermon series "Foundations" this weekend. It is a series based on the first 12 chapters of the book of Genesis and kicking off the series is Pastor Oliver who will preach from Genesis 1. His sermon is titled "Beginnings" and the big idea of his sermon is about God who spoke everything into being and purposefully made all creation good. Let's pray for Pastor Oliver that the Creator of all things will grant him clarity in understanding and proclaiming the truths of His word, edifying the church through his ministry of word.
