WORSHIP ONLINE – SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2020

TIME: 11:00 – 11:30 AM

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.

Psalm 23:1-3

Dear friends,

In Psalm 23, we are reassured of the Lord’s presence and love, even in the most difficult of times. As we continue to face exceptional challenges each day, we are called to declare peace, be uplifted and take comfort in knowing that He is always with us. 

We invite you to join us tomorrow for our Sunday morning worship service online. To ensure you are properly connected, you can log in from 10:30 a.m.. We will also use this time for fellowship, before we begin our service at 11:00 a.m. Please state your name at the beginning of logging in.

We are grateful and look forward to connecting with you all.
