This morning's service was comprised of three distinct parts that fit together really nicely! We started with an invitation for the saints to spend time in the Scriptures this year. After that, we moved on to a brief introduction to the book of 1 Thessalonians, the part of the Bible we'll be study over the next several weeks (could be months!). Then, using 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 as a springboard, we launched into a time of reflection and prayer around the Lord's Table - an invitation to receive grace from the Savior.
