Look back:  Read back over Matthew 15:21-31.  How encouraging that Jesus has come for all that believe and how necessary it is that belief will result in worship. 

Look ahead: This coming Sunday, Pastor Michael will be preaching from Matthew 15:32-39.  Read over the passage with your family during the week before Sunday.  

Sing: Check out this week's music and sing with your family before Sunday.  We'll be singing some Christmas favorites along with a new one, "Sing We the Song of Emmanuel."
