    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 2 Peter 1:1-4, we will learn how the Word of God is all sufficient for life and godliness because the subject of the Word of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, is all sufficient for life and godliness.

     

    This afternoon in Romans 5:1-2, we will experience afresh the wonder of the Gospel of God that has granted to us by grace through faith the forgiveness of sins and the righteousness of Christ in which we now stand.

     

    Reformation Luncheon Sunday

    Today, 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.

     

    Next Sunday: 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.

    Saturday, November 4th: Daylight Savings Time Ends. You may enjoy an extra hour of sleep if you turn BACK your clocks one hour when you retire for the evening. (Remember, Fall BACK - Spring AHEAD)
