Psalm 100:2 says, “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.”  Another words, worship is a delight, not a duty.  Worship is to be filled with joy and gladness.

Our desire is that today will be a celebration of worship that will fill our souls with joy and thanksgiving.

Oh by the way, we are delighted God has sent you to Immanuel Baptist Church today.  Our prayer is that you will experience true worship today!


Bro. Gary continues this morning with . . .
