Good morning and welcome to our worship. A special welcome to  all our Mothers. Today we honor you for all that you are and all that you do. To all our children of all ages here today with their moms, stop by our photo booth in the Atrium before or after worship to get a picture with your mom.

This morning we will continue through the apostle John’s letter as we look at 1 John 2:12-17. John continues to encourage believers. In this section he addresses the wide demographic that makes up the church—from new believers to seasoned veterans—and reminds them that they have what it takes to resist temptation and continue their walk with God.

There are lots of ways to serve here at PA, from CTW to Mobile Pantry to Barnabas Center to Ladies ministry. Look through the Messenger and find out where God is calling you to serve.

It’s a great day to worship! Glad you are here.
