Welcome! We're so glad you've found DisciplesNet Church, located along the internet highway and especially created for people who connect with church best this way. We hope you will join us now for 29 minutes of uplifting worship together. This week Rev. Anita Cobb brings a message of hope, "The Potter's Hands," using Jeremiah 18:1-6 as text.
Our time together includes prayer, scripture, singing, and listening to the word, together with people in times and places all around the world.
As we do every week, our time together includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread) where you may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
If you would like to share with us at the table that extends beyond boundaries of time, place, and structure, then we ask that you prepare a wafer, cracker, or bread and a drink. As we pray, we are praying that our blessing extends to where you are. If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us. (Scroll down for an Order of Worship)
We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from being part. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that are always open, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
