Grace to you and peace, dear church!
There’s just one important announcement this week. This upcoming Sunday we are celebrating the church’s 19thbirthday! This means that we are planning just one service at 10:00am instead of the usual two. There will be a very interesting gift for all during the service! After the service, we will have lunch followed by various, interesting activities for all ages. Plan to be at church until 4:00pm. If you would like to participate as a volunteer at a particular station, please contact the secretary. Also, if you have friends or people whom you’d like to introduce to the church or the Gospel, invite them this Sunday. The main sermon will be in Russian with an English translation provided via earphones. Please pray that this celebration would achieve the 3 main goals that stand before us in the church: to worship God, edify believers, and save sinners.
Also, if you didn’t have the opportunity to attend the seminar, “The Family, in which Christ is the Center,” then we encourage you to watch/listen to all the recorded sessions (be advised that they’re in Russian):

Attention! There is an opportunity for ministry! On Wednesdays, during the choir rehearsals, there is a need to watch over the children of the choir members. There is special room for that. All the details can be discussed with Nick Shipilin.
The Scripture memory text – John 4:23-2423 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.
