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.

Molly Lee will share a message from Matthew 18 and Deuteronomy 6 titled “Widen the Circle.”

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


Join us as we pray for the following...

Special focus: The lost and unchurched in our community.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Evelyn Ruppert, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Ed Gordon Family, Nate Johnson Family, Ken Berton, and Tim & Lori Wygant.

* 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.
