Upcoming Events for 4-2-18 thru 4-8-18

Looking toward Easter Sunday…
I am so excited to hear your jokes that you will bring Sunday morning, and I am eager to see the magnificent cross of Lilies in the sanctuary!
Then, on Sunday morning, we will celebrate and laugh…that death does not have the final word.
PLEASE bring flowers to place at the resurrection cross on the front lawn.

We extend sympathy to Valerie Price and family for the loss of Joyce Price. Please be in prayer for the family during this difficult time.For use in printed publications, Right-Click on the filename below to download and choose “Save Target As” or “Save Link As”
