We are looking forward to this morning’s service which has been planned to help us focus more clearly on the sacrifice the Lord made for us.  The Lord’s Supper will not be observed until toward the end of our service.  We pray that the entire service will enhance our appreciation for the deep love our Lord has for us and what that love cost Him.
