Setting the Atmosphere
for the Day of Worship I & II
The importance of the Church is that we allow God to do His work in our lives and in the lives and hearts of all who attend for worship. Excellence in all we do, as much as can be presented, is our goal so the Lord and His magnificent presence can be readily and tangibly sensed and received by all open to His work in our lives.
Setting the Atmosphere for the Day of Worship II builds upon the message communicated in the the original book.
