TIP OF THE WEEK…
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP! Not only do we need to prepare our hearts for worship during the week preceding our worship services, we should also prepare as we come into the sanctuary. Parents and teachers should encourage their children and young adults to go to the restroom before coming into the sanctuary. Only those with health condi ons, emergencies, or work related issues should be going in and out of the sanctuary during the service. We appreciate everyone being considerate of others and focusing on heart felt‐worship!
