Welcome to the Third Anniversary worship for DisciplesNet Church. We are here for people who come around the world and around the clock. This week we are blessed to have special guest preacher, Rev. Rick Spleth, Regional Minster of the Christian Church in Indiana.
Also we hope you will blessed in participating in this worship with a special time of prayer and scripture, accompanied by music and lighting candles at the different stations, each in thanksgiving for those who have made a great difference in our life, and in our faith.
Also, as we do every week, we extend the invitation for you to join as we celebrate the Lord's Supper, also known as breaking of the bread, communion, and the Eucharist. We believe that it is Christ who invites us to the Table, and all who would say "yes" to that invitation may come before us, in reverence to take part.
The Lord's table has a way of bridging the barriers of time, place, and individual differences that may have been keeping separated. If you would like to join with us today, please prepare a small piece of bread or similar item, and some type of drink (we use grape juice, but other liquids including wine and water will work).
As we pray then for the bread and cup, we will pray that our blessing extends to where you are. If you are unable or prefer not to eat or drink with us at this time, you may want to meditate or use mental symbols during the time of remembering Christ.
We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from being part, and will share word about us with others. 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.
If you are not satisfied with your time with us, we would appreciate knowing that, too, as we are constantly working to improve what we do and connect with people, and your feedback will help us grow better.
May God bless you richly!
