THANK YOU
This past weekend was very busy. IT began with our first “Night of Worship” on Friday night. We had a wonderful time hearing testimonies, singing to and about the Lord, and listening to a devotion via internet by John Piper. Thanks to Jen Bourbonais for planning this community wide time of worship. On Saturday, we had a work day. This effort resulted in over 40 older children, students, and adults gathered to work at the church. It would take too long to share how much and what types of work was done. Suffice it to say that there was a lot issues taken care of. A big “Thank You” goes to Forest Dunlop and Scott Crestman, our Building and Grounds Team’s Co-Leaders. I love the way folks come together to get things done. Thank you all so much. We love and appreciate all who assisted.
 
RESURRECTION SUNDAY
Sunday we will have Two (2) worship services. The first will be at 8:30am and the next at 10:30am. They will be identical. We will not have bible study at 9:30am. This is always a special time to gather. It’s also a great opportunity to invite unchurched neighbors, friends, family and co-workers to attend as well. Please pray for every aspect of the services, the music and the preaching. Pray that God will work in the hearts of those who need Christ to trust Him.
 
EASTER MUSIC THANKS
Sunday morning we were blessed with a wonderful presentation the life of Christ. I want to thank Jen Bourbonais for directing the choir, for writing the drama and enlisting helpers, and for preparing the power point for this wonderful presentation. It was a real blessing. A big thank you as well to those who participated, our choir, children and adults who were part of the drama; to our AV Team; to all of those who assisted. For those who may have missed it, it’s up on our facebook page. It has already had many many “hits,” along with comments. I hope you were blessed. We have wonderfully talented people that God is using for His glory. I hope you’ll share with Jen and the others a word of thanks when you see them. We will be doing a piece from the music this coming Lord’s Day. Hope to see you then. For me, Resurrection Sunday never gets old. I still marvel at what took place prior to, during and after the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. He is why we do what we do. His glory is the driving priority in our life and in our worship. Join me in praying for our services this coming Sunday as well as for any and all other churches who preach Christ as the “only” Way, Truth, and Life. God bless you. Happy Resurrection Day! I love y’all.
