    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 23, we will see in the oracle against the economic and king-making sea empire of Tyre, a picture of gospel transformation from prideful, self-serving sinners to humble servants devoted to the kingdom and glory of God.

     

    This evening  in 2 Samuel 22:32-51, we will learn from the conclusion of David’s psalm, the song of our hearts as saved in Christ is a psalm of the powerful presence of God, preserving and governing all His elect and all of their actions.

     

    Next Sunday: Reformation Day Luncheon Next Sunday, October 29, we will hold our annual Reformation Day Luncheon in Fellowship Hall in acknowledgement of the action of a German Augustine Monk & Pastor named Martin Luther, nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on October 31, 1517. The menu is potluck, but if you are inclined towards something German that would be fun!
