The Worship Quote of the Week for (06/19/2001):

Primary Purpose
Todayís WORSHIP QUOTE is from William Franklin "Billy" Graham.

The purpose of this Christian society called the "Church" is, first: to
glorify God by our worship. We do not go to church just to hear a sermon. We
go to church to worship God.

ó Billy Graham, in PEACE WITH GOD. New York: Pocket Books, 1963, p. 194.

[Please, join us in prayer this week for the Greater Louisville Billy Graham
Crusade, June 21-24, 2001. Thank God for Dr. Grahamís continued good health
and for the wonderful spirit among hundreds of local churches to support the
ministry of the crusade. May many men, women and children hear, believe, and
respond to the message of Godís love as it is proclaimed, and may God receive
all the glory. For schedule and prayer reminders see:

Have a great week,
