“What's in a Name?”
Questions 53 to 56 of the Shorter Catechism
Scriptures: Exodus 20:7, Matthew 5:33-37, and Revelation 15:1-4
God’s name is to be reverenced, respected. God’s name is not to be misused. Why? Because God’s name is a reflection of God’s character and attributes. To misuse God’s name is to misuse God’s character, to say something that is not true, to claim that God is Someone God is not.
We look forward to you sharing with us for worship!

Hebrews 12:1-2, 20-24, 1 John 1:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 12:7, 3:21-23
Communion is fellowship: fellowship with God, fellowship with other believers here on earth, but also a fellowship with the Church Triumphant, those who have gone to be with the Lord and with whom we will be reunited someday. This is both our present experience and our future hope that God has given us in Christ.
