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.

Pastor Chris DeMott will share a message from Matthew 13:44-46 entitled “Parallel Parables.”

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


Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our generosity and kindness.
Special focus:
 That those in our church who are struggling financially would be recognized and assisted.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Darrell & Theresa Reed, Guy & Leona Reichow, and Carol Bowman.

* 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.
