Welcome

Welcome to the Reed City Church of the Nazarene.  Thanks for choosing to worship with us today.  May God fill you with His presence as you seek Him this morning.

This morning we are privileged to have our children share the Christmas story with us as they perform their musical, “Really Really Really Good News!”

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


PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

Special focus: Our family and friends who need salvation.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Evelyn Ruppert, Ez Sims, Nick Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Bob Moser Family, Daniel & Amanda Cameron, and Opie Hutchinson Family.

* Our church family is very important to us and so we choose to remember a few families/individuals each week in prayer.

Please share with us God’s activity in your life and how our Pastoral staff can pray for you.
