Holy Week is almost upon us.
In celebration of the work of our Lord in giving His life for our salvation, we have two special services. The first one is Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00pm. This is our Maundy Thursday worship service celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion. On Friday, April 3rd we will have a Good Friday Service at 7:00pm, focusing on the suffering and death of Christ as the suffering and death we deserve for even one of our sins.
We also have our services of Christ’s victory over death on Easter Sunday. First there is our Easter Sunrise service at 6:30am, followed by our Easter breakfast and then our 9:00am Worship service, which is a service of song and praise for Christ’s vitory over death.
We hope you can join us for these important opportunities to thank our Lord.
      

 Join our Bible study on the book of Romans. This book is often called the “Reader’s Digest condensed version” of the Bible.  St. Paul’s message to the believers in Rome covers the prophecies and promises of God in the Old Testament as well as the fulfillment found in Christ is mentioned in the New Testament. This is a great Bible class for both newcomers and veterans alike.
