Service of Worship
November 15, 2015
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith –
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God –
not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Salvation is God’s gift.
God has done something for us
that we cannot do for ourselves.
In worship, we joyfully celebrate God’s marvelous grace.
With grateful hearts,
we praise Him for His indescribable gift.
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
