We come to be reminded of God’s power and grace. We seek a connecƟon with a source of power that cannot be exhausted… a spring of hope that will run dry. We stand today on the shoulders of pioneers in faith who have gone before and shown us the true meaning of faith. Help us today to stand with them and to trust the Ɵmeless promises of God. We believe, but ask God’s help in our unbelief. In the name of Christ we pray… AMEN. *Hymn of Praise Sing Praise to God, Who Reigns Above Children’s Moment (10:30am only) #126 UMH vs 1,3,4 Rev.
