Welcome

Welcome to the Reed City Church of the Nazarene.  We are glad you have chosen to worship with us on this Memorial Day weekend. This morning’s service will be focused upon remembering. Our prayer is that God will encourage us and fill us with hope for the future as we pause and remember the past.

We would like to know you were here today - please connect with us:


PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

Special focus: The men and women serving in our Armed Forces.
Health Issues: Vernice Berton, Evelyn Ruppert, Ez Sims, Nick Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: DuWayne & Carol Burr, Torry Deady Family, Amador Mora Family, and Nick Grein Family.
* Our church family is very important to us and so we choose to remember a few families/individuals each week in prayer.
