Minister’s Welcome

Good morning to you on this third Sunday of March. We are fast approaching the celebration of Easter, on April 1st, and even though, this year, it may fall on a calendar day notorious for pranks, the events we are preparing to celebrate are absolutely no joke. The road to God is littered with the carcasses of those who, in His pursuit, were not willing to accept the reality that God is bigger than them. I mean, they wanted a bigger God, no doubt, but not big enough that they could not understand, or control. We come together today to celebrate and honor a God whose ways are far beyond our ways, far beyond our ability to understand, but a God whose essential qualities we know, for what needs to be known of God was plainly revealed in His Son, our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Thank you for being here, join with me in giving honor and praise to the One whose love is perfect.

This Wednesday – March 21st – Family Time, Peak of the Week

From 6:00PM we will meet to take supper together. Please bring your own take-out food and join us as we eat together sharing life as a family.

From 7:00PM we will come together and continue our Bible Study through James. This is a Bible Study with Francis Chan. Please read & pray over James 2:14-26 in preparation for this study.

Giveaway -  April 27th Set-Up; April 28th Open to Public

We will have a Giveaway this Spring and I thank Shana Parent for being willing to serve as the coordinator for this ministry. She needs volunteers and support as well as your donations. Please start bringing in donations so we have time to sort through them beforehand as the format of the Giveaway has changed. We will only have one day of being open to the public and one day for actual set-up. Also, if you know of anyone in need, please make us aware of them. Thank you.
