A Psalm of Thanksgiving

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!

Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.

Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalms 100:1-5, NKJV

Can you find the five commands in this passage?

Coming Soon ...

… a new program of outreach into our community entitled House to House / Heart to Heart. It is an 8-page bi-monthly magazine that presents the gospel of Christ in a very positive format. At present more than 750,000+ issues are being mailed with great success throughout the country.

We have ordered our first issues and hope to begin an initial mailing of the magazine into our community around the first of the year. (Sample issues the foyer.)

If you have a friend, neighbor or co-worker that lives in Charlotte or Sarasota Counties that you would like to have placed on the mailing list—please give us their name and address. (There are sign up sheets for the mailing list on the table in the foyer.)
