HAPPY PALM SUNDAY. Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. It thus marks the beginning of Holy Week. Lord bless you as you worship!
THANKS AGAIN FOR LOVING OUR COMMUNITY! THANK YOU to everyone who united in ministry to love our community! SPECIAL thanks to Grant L. and Kim S. for mobilizing our church to reach out in love to meet the practical needs of our neighbors!!
MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE THIS WEEK, APRIL 18 – 7 PM. Come worship as Christ and His disciples did on that first Maundy Thursday of Holy Week. In our worship we will put our faith into practice by following the Lord in worship, baptism, and communion. If you desire to give public witness of your faith in Jesus by being baptized, simply put your full name, birthday, email, phone #, and the word “Baptism” on a Welcome Card and BRING it with you to a brief baptismal class Sunday, April 14th in the northwest classroom following the morning service. Please pray for this service, those who will be baptized, and plan to join your church family in worship! (Childcare for our younger kids will be provided)
EASTER IS COMING… WHO COULD YOU INVITE TO EASTER SUNDAY WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 21st? Invite family and friends to worship with us! Join us for a Continental Breakfast at 9:00 AM.

After the service our kids will enjoy the Annual Egg Hunt on our church grounds. “I was found by those who did not seek Me; I revealed Myself to those who did not ask for Me.” (Romans 10:20)
YOU CAN STILL SIGN UP FOR FAITH PROMISE 2019! Faith promise is basically an exercise of faith where we trust God to meet through us a real and practical need way beyond our ability to meet.

These gifts will help us reach the following MISSIONAL GOALS… $15,000 for Lawn/Run-Off Pond, and Fence improvements – $25,000 for Children’s Playground, and $10,000 toward city sewer/water hook up. Pick up a FP card and info sheet on the back table, familiarize yourself with FP, Ask God to take you on a new faith adventure in 2019, fill out your FP card, and drop it in the offering box TODAY… Each year God provides in AMAZING ways in response to our faith… Hebrews 11:6, “Without faith it is impossible to please God…”
