Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall (Sunday, 2 October 2011)

Welcome back to the Deer Creek Charge! We’re so glad you are here! There are many good things happening around our churches, but we need you to make them better. Please consider joining us as we reach out to our community to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. There is a place for you here.

This Sunday, our message is focused on Exodus 20:1-20 (The Ten Commandments). But these aren’t your grandparents’ version! Come find out how to make this stuff in the Bible “work” in the 21st century. The message is titled, “Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall.” We also have an opportunity to celebrate Holy Communion together. Here’s a fun fact…this is World Communion Sunday, where Christians all over the world will be celebrating together! Check out the bottom of the announcements for more info. EVERYONE is welcome to receive the elements of bread and grape juice. Let us know if you have questions. Hope to see you around!

Worship Fun Fact! Today is World Communion Sunday. Celebrated on the first Sunday in October since 1936, this is a day when all Christians, all around the world, can celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. It began at a time when many churches celebrated communion quarterly or less. Now that many congregations celebrate this sacrament at least monthly or weekly, it has taken on new meaning in a divided world.
