     See you in church. Bring a friend. 

    Looking ahead . . . 

    Used as a play on words — the year and “perfect” eyesight — worship will focus on three areas of vision.

     B ecause God is with you all the time,
    no place is any closer to God
    than the place where you are right now.

    The peace of Christ be with you—
    —and also with you.
    Passing the peace is a deeply theological practice of reconciliation not replicated in secular culture. We greet each other in Christ, laying aside our differences — at least for the hour.

    ‘Time with the children’
    Our 10 a.m. services normally include
    this segment focused on young worshipers.

    Never underestimate the power of prayer

    No problem you might have
    is too big for God to handle.
