Quotes to Consider:

Augustine on heavenly citizenship: "The citizen of the city of God [is] predestined by grace, elected by grace, by grace a stranger below, and by grace a citizen above" (City of God, XV.1, p. 284).

Gerrit Vos: "Now then, when God has sought you out, and entered your heart by His Word, Spirit and grace, you are blest. Then the earth and all its treasures cannot charm you any more."

Announcements (subject to God’s will)

Back table: Rev. McGeown’s bi-monthly letter is available today.

After a week of self-examination, confessing members in good standing are called to partake of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Your participation in the Lord’s Supper is in part a witness that you repent of your sins, believe that Jesus Christ is your righteousness and desire to live a new and godly life. As this heavenly food can be taken to one’s judgment (I Cor. 11:28-30) and as the common reception of this food is a confession of doctrinal unity (Acts 2:42), the elders supervise the partaking of the sacrament. Visitors from other denominations must request permission from the Council.
