I look forward to worshipping with you this week as we hold the good news of Christ's resurrection before us and our world this year.
Soup and Bread Supper
April 27th 5p.m., by donation. If you missed the first event, you missed a great meal. All proceeds to benefit the Capital Campaign with any leftover soup to be donated to the youth to sell on their Soup Day.
Youth Group Soup Fundraiser
April 28th will be the next Youth Group Soup fundraiser between services. Proceeds to benefit the youth mission trip.
Levi Sunday is May 5th, Save the date. Every Spring we gather together after service and spend a small part of our day caring for one of God’s many wonderful gifts – this church and property. There is something for everyone so please don’t be shy - we need many volunteers for this event! If you are the outdoorsy type (especially if you like to go to the beach), you can help clear the sand from the parking area and sidewalks! If you enjoy gardening you can work with the lawn crew to rake, weed, or prune trees and shrubs. There are windows to clean, and corners to dust, and other indoor beatification tasks too! Dress comfortably, wear sturdy shoes and join us after worship. We will start shortly after first service and continue through and after second service, ending around 1 pm. Come for an hour or stay for the day!
Items to bring (if available)
- Lawn Rakes
