Deacons of the Week – Bud Long and Dan Woolf
NEW CITY CATECHISM
52 Questions and Answers for Our Hearts and Minds – We are using this resource to help teach and reinforce the core doctrines of the Christian faith. Be sure to download the free NCC app.
Question 43 – What are the sacraments or ordinances?
Answer – The sacraments or ordinances given by God and instituted by Christ, namely baptism and the Lord’s Supper, are visible signs and seals that we are bound together as a community of faith by his death and resurrection. By our use of them the Holy Spirit more fully declares and seals the promises of the gospel to us.

Sundays, 5:00 PM – Small group for those post-college to mid-thirties. Tonight’s gathering to be hosted by Lisa and Dan Woolf.
