Welcome: Worship Leader-  CHRISTOPHER CULLEN--Please do welcome AFTER the first song-"Good Morning everyone, Welcome to the Vineyard..........." Invite people to stand and worship together.  

COMMUNION- PAUL AND JESSICA WALLEN- Will be BEFORE  the last song of worship set. Be sure to check with Christopher so you know when to come up and we don't have a big gap in the flow. Have your servers come up at that time also.

LAST SONG OF WORSHIP SET- will be after communion. Ushers will collect used cups during this song.

 AnnouncementsNANCY CULLEN (be ready to come up immediately after last song) - "for those of you that I have not met yet....I'm _______, and I lead the_______ Ministry of the Church and am a member of the Ministry Council--OR I am a part of the Executive Team here at the Vineyard".

If you are a first time GUEST  we would love if you would fill out the Connect card in your bulletin and tell us how you found your way here today. For each card we get, we will donate $10 to the Pontifex Food outreach! We love supporting all that Pontifex does and partnering with them to feed the hungry in our community.  We promise not to send you a lot of junk…..Just drop your Card at the Connect Table in the Gathering Place as you leave today and be sure and pick up a welcome packet that includes a free worship CD as our gift to you. 

Offering-If I could have the ushers come up as we continue to worship with our tithes and offerings…..(pray for offering and then ushers will pass baskets while you are doing announcements).   USHERS-DO NOT PASS THE BASKETS UNTIL PRAYER IS DONE!!

Would like to give a big thank you to all who helped with GLORYFEST yesterday----add your own comments

Please check out the table for donations of school supplies to Operation Christmas Child that is in the Gathering Place. You have until the end of this month to bring in your donations- so don't forget!(MEDIA GRAPHIC PLEASE)
