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.

Pastor Chris DeMott will share a message from Jeremiah 2:5-13 entitled “May I ask a question?”

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


PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our service to those in need.
Special focus:
 That the poor, hungry and lonely in our community would be cared for.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Roger & Bonnie Vannett, Scott Jackson Family, and Dan & Cathy Benedict.

* 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.
