Rise Above It - Part 3 "The Name of God"
This week we continue our Rise Above It series by looking at the commandment that we must not take the name of the Lord in vain. Growing up I always associated this commandment with using bad language or making jokes about the Lord, but taking the Lord's name in vain can mean much more than that. Taking the Lord's name in vain can mean only calling on Him when we want something from Him. This Sunday we will look at this concept and discuss how we can build a closer relationship with the Lord by inviting Him into our lives regularly through acknowledging His influence on the good things we do and experience.
Our regular worship services begin at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. The first part of the service is for the whole family; during this portion of the service, there are songs, prayers, and a talk for the children. After the children's talk, parents can take their children to the nursery or to Sunday School. The second portion of the service is aimed at adults.
After worship, we gather in the church cafe and hall to share fellowship and enjoy refreshments. Everyone is invited to join this gathering.
