1 Happy New Year January 1, 2017 Fame and Glory Fellowship Staff: Pastor Marc Ramirez Senior Pastor Pastor Karl Dyrli Associate Pastor of Worship Tim Sheare Director of Church Administration Pat Dieffenbacher Administrative Support Assistant Our vision as a church is to be a worshipping, growing, and serving fellowship, in which the glory of Jesus Christ is displayed in everything we are. We hope that this vision brings more honor and glory to the Lord through the existence of Fellowship Church and the work of the Spirit of God in and through us. It is our prayer that you are encouraged and blessed as a result of being here this morning. Here at Fellowship Church we seek to fulfill the mission to which God has called us, and we hope that you get a sense of your role in God s purpose and plan to bring glory to His name. We believe that God has specific plans for this church, here at this location, at this time, to exist for His glory and service. We also hope that this day is an encouragement to you spiritually. The world we live in is filled with challenge and difficulty, and the wisdom of God's Word is incredibly relevant to what we experience in our daily lives. God brings hope into difficulty, light into darkness, and His glorious truth has a wonderful way of invading and transforming our world of confusion. It is our prayer that the study of God's Word will be a great encouragement to you and your relationship with God. We gather together today in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May His name be lifted high, His purposes be fulfilled, and His Kingdom advance in power and glory. Pastor Marc A Welcome to Our Guests Thank you for joining us in the worship of our great and awesome God. We are so glad to have you with us today. Please stop by the Welcome Center and let the attendant know you are visiting. They will gladly welcome you, provide you with resources about Fellowship, and they even have a special gift just for you. I would also love to meet you, so please feel free to introduce yourself after the service. You are our guest today, and I pray that you are blessed by God in being with us.
