Announcements (subject to God’s will)
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 who are members of other denominations must request
permission from the Council.
On the back table are devotionals for October, as well as
the September issue of the Covenant Reformed News.
After this evening’s service, there will be a short meeting
at which male confessing members will vote to
approve/disapprove the nomination of Philip Hall for an
additional 3-year term as deacon.
