Welcome

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!”  Psalm 118:24

Today is the first day of the rest of your life!  What a blessing to spend it in worship to our God!

Good morning, and welcome to the Muscatine Church.

Your presence means a lot to us!  If you are visiting with us, we encourage you to take one of the cards in the seat back pocket in front of your and fill it out – tells about yourself so we can communicate with you.  No matter if you are new here or been around for a while,  on the back of that card is a place for you tell us how we can pray for you or that you would like to speak with someone..  We would be honored to do that.

As we seek to be a God-honoring, Christ-centered, Spirit-led, and Bible-based family of God’s people – we want you to know that glorifying God by connecting people to Jesus is what our aim and purpose is all about!

Today we will sing songs of praise, lifting our voices together.  Offer up prayers of sincerity and commune with God around His table together.  What a privilege it is to begin the week together focusing on Jesus and what he has done for us!

I pray that you will be encouraged by your presence today, that we make you feel welcome and that God himself speaks to your heart this morning!  To God be the Glory…great things he has done!

Let’s worship him together!
