Who will you invite to one of our THREE EASTER SERVICES?
8 out of 10 people will say yes if you invite them to an Easter Service!
We will have Easter invite cards available at the Welcome Desk beginning this Sunday.
If you knew that you had just one week left to live, how would that shape your actions? How would you spend your time? With whom would you spend your time?
We will be exploring The Last Week of Jesus' life during Lent. We will look closely at his actions, where he went, and with whom he spent time with. We will consider what all of this meant 2,000 years ago and what it means to us today.
The Gospel of Mark will be our guide during this wonderful, day by day journey with Jesus, during this season of Lent. We will continue our Lenten journey this Sunday by exploring the events surrounding the last Friday of Jesus' life with a message titled "The Death of Jesus" from Mark 15:33-47.
We offer three worship experiences on Sundays!

NEW LIFE GROUP FOR 20S & 30S FORMING NOW!
tephanie Krechel will be leading a new Life Group for young adults in their 20's and 30's. This group will begin meeting in April; dates and times to be determined after the group is formed. Here's some information about what to expect:
We live in a culture that caters to our choices. We like our options, and we enjoy the opportunity to choose our preferences. Popular psychology and human reasoning tell us to make choices based on what feels good. They encourage us, “just follow your heart.” God has given us a much better guide, however, in His Word. Unlike our fickle and untrustworthy opinions, God’s Word never changes. Its dependability has been proven through the centuries.
In The Choice Is Yours, Terrie Chappell will lead us through twelve choices that can strengthen or weaken our walk with God. Discover these important, daily decisions that will bring joy and purpose to your life!
Would you like more information? Please inquire via e mail email@example.com
