Happy Easter!
The angel said, "He is not here. He is risen." This transformed the early church into a dynamic ministry for Christ. They preached constantly about the miracle of the resurrection, and found hope in the promise of our being raised to be with Christ in glory at His coming. This is our message and our blessed hope, too. Everybody tell somebody that Christ is alive and coming for us one day.

Revive us Again!
Our church family has been faithful in supporting the faith promise portion of our church ministry. When we hear from our missionary visitors, may the Lord revive our hearts with a stronger burden for lost souls at home and abroad.

9:30 Sharp!
Young Adult Discovery Sunday School class meets in the choir room. The Faithful Class, middle adult class, meets on the second level in the kindergarten room. Young at Heart class meets in the auditorium. The Friendly Hands class meets at the side of the auditorium. We really believe that Adult Sunday school is a wonderful idea!
