Resurrection Sunday

Join us on April 21 as we celebrate Resurrection Sunday!  We will be celebrating the fact that on the Cross Jesus was crushed for the forgiveness of sin and took the wrath of God that we deserve.  We will also be celebrating the fact that Jesus has crushed death.  There is no more sting in death; there is no victory for death because Jesus has risen victoriously from the grave! Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come and celebrate with us! Resurrection Breakfast at 9:00 am and Worship Service at 10:15 am.

Missions Sunday

Will be May 5th with Keith and Ann Fisher speaking.  During the morning worship service Keith and Ann will share how they minister to Muslim Arab families sharing the Word of God as opportunities arise.  “Look at the nations and look—and be completely amazed.  Because I’m going to do something in your days that I would not believe, even if they told you” (Habakkuk 1:5).  There will be a carry-in meal after the morning worship service to fellowship with Keith and Ann.  What you bring is what we will be eating.
