    WELCOME TO GRACE OPC! 

    On behalf of the session of Grace OPC, I want to extend our warmest greetings to you.  It is my hope and prayer that as we gather together this Lord’s Day to worship our Triune God and Redeemer, you will be encouraged to cast your cares upon the Lord and to draw near to God by faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are new here in Fair Lawn, please join us for fellowship following the benediction, and be sure to sign our guestbook.  We look forward to personally speaking with you, and if there are any prayer concerns in your heart, don’t hesitate to bring them to our attention.   

                                                                                Pastor John Keegan 

     

    This morning in Isaiah 24:1-23, we will see how God’s people ought to think and act in the midst of a world in a free-fall collapse because it refuses God’s divine order for our lives.

     

    This evening in the last public words of David in 2 Samuel 23:1-7, we will consider how our final words ought to reflect our daily words of praise to our God and Savior Jesus Christ for His faithfulness to us.

     

    Today, The Lord’s Supper. All who may participate in the Lord’s Supper are those who have publicly confessed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who continue steadfastly in that faith, who are members of good standing in a particular disciplined and Bible believing manifestation of His Church, and who, in accordance with the Scriptures, have duly examined their hearts before the Lord.  If you are a visitor unknown to us and wish to participate in the Lord’s Supper we ask you, if it is possible, to make yourself known to a member of Session before the beginning of worship.  The ushers will happily assist you in so doing.

     

    Fellowship Luncheon next Sunday Here is a description of what to expect; following morning worship, we will hold our monthly fellowship luncheon. These delicious luncheons are a potluck meal. We ask everyone who is able to join us to please bring a main dish and a side dish, salad or dessert. Bring enough for you, your family and a friend!

     

    Collection for the Thank Offering

    Collection for the Thank Offering will be November 19. Checks should be made out to Grace OPC and designated for the “Thank Offering.”

     

    Next Week: Pastor John on Study Leave

    Pastor John will be away on Study Leave. Rev. John Vroegindewey will bring God’s Word in the morning and afternoon worship services.
