Karibu (Welcome in Swahili)! O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good! I am excited God has blessed us to enter into 2016. This entrance is God’s sign that God still has work for us to do, as well as God’s continuing to exhibit grace and mercy in our lives. In response to God’s loving kindness and tender mercies, we offer God our sincere worship and uninhibited praise. I invite you to share in our life-changing engagement as practicing Christians, which is on the front of this bulletin. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is our first priority. In this, we strive to make Jesus’ words applicable to our lives, while showing the face of Jesus to everyone we meet. We also do this by continuing to fight for the least cared for, while continuing to unapologetically declare a war on educational disparities, hunger, mass incarceration, homelessness, food deserts, etc. The local church must lead the charge in helping change the lives of all people, and you are welcomed to join us in this fight.
If you are a first time or repeat visitor, I want to take this written moment to greet you. As family we have not met before, or have met in times past, we invite you to join us on this spiritual journey of connectivity. In an effort to meet a variety of worship needs, we offer two worship services. Our 8:00 a.m. Worship and Word (1st and 3rd Sundays only) is a non-traditional worship service. Our 10:45 a.m. Sunday Morning Glory Worship is a blending of traditional and contemporary worship. In addition, we invite you to join us every Wednesday at 7 p.m. for Wednesday in the Word with yours truly. Lastly, if you are without a place to call home, we would love to be your church family of faith, and I would LOVE to serve as your Pastor! Shalom.

Sermon in Songs
Psalm 96 (NRSV)
1 Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Sing to the Lord, praise his name proclaim his salvation day after day. 3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. 4 For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. 6 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. 7 Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts. 9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth. 10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. 12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. 13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.
