The Tuesday Morning Bible Study will conclude Part 2 of our study on the book James on Tuesday, March 19.
After a brief break, we will resume with Part 3 on Tuesday, April 23 and conclude the book of James on May 21 (a five week study). Come join this group for these studies on an exciting and challenging study. We meet at 10:00 in the Fellowship Hall.
The Music Makers (grades 1-3) and Young Musicians (grades 4-5) will present special music on Palm Sunday, March 24, at the 10:45 worship service.
Our Easter Choir will present the musical, “Victorious” on Sunday morning, March 31 at the 10:45 service (we will not have an 8:30 service that day). The music is contemporary in flavor…the texts are challenging and inspirational. This is a day of great celebration for the Christian Church… A day of celebrating the resurrection of Christ and the “victorious life” that He offers to all who respond. Join us on Easter Sunday, March 31.
