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 Pastor Chris DeMott will introduce our new October sermon series entitled “Whole 31: Fasting from Foolishness” in which we will investigate the book of Proverbs. As a part of this series, Pastor Chris is challenging everyone to read one chapter every day for the 31 days of October.

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 desire to fully submit to God’s will.
Special focus:
 That those who do not know God personally would open up their lives to Him.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Jerry & Iola Talcott, Brian & Marcia Sauntman, and Kirk Edstrom 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.
