HOLY WEEK SERVICES
The week between Palm Sunday and Easter is a very holy and sacred time for us as Christians. Our church has several special worship times during this week filled with meaning for us and which will enhance your spiritual life.
March 25: Palm Sunday—Morning worship at 11 A.M. our Church Choir will be sharing their Easter Cantata. It is called “Majesty!” and speaks powerfully of the victory our Savior won when He died and rose again. Palm fronds will be given to all in attendance and we’ll close the service with all singing the traditional hymn: The Palms.
March 29: Holy Thursday—7:30 P.M. service: remembering the Last Supper Jesus had with His disciples in the Upper Room. We will celebrate Communion together 12 at a time in our own “upper room.” A very special time of reflection and remembrance! Pastor's message: "Not My Will, but Yours Be Done."
April 14: Good Friday—We have a traditional three hour service from 12 Noon to 3 P.M., which commemorates the hours of darkness when Jesus was on the cross. During these hours, we have seven mini services (about 25 minutes each) focused on the Seven Last Words or Sayings of Jesus from the Cross. Each section includes hymns, scripture, special music and a meditation by one of our lay people on each of the seven times Jesus spoke from the cross. You may come and go as needed in between each segment or stay for the full time. We know it will be a blessing if you can come.
April 1: Easter Sunday—6:30 A.M. “Sonrise” Service—a joyous celebration of the risen Christ as we remember the empty tomb.
9:30 A.M. Sunday School Easter musical, “I’ve Been Redeemed”
11:00 A.M. Celebration of the Resurrection: great singing and music and Pastor Amey’s message on the truth of Christ’s resurrection: "Jesus Won! We Won!". Don’t miss the greatest day in the church year!

Praise the Lord for a wonderful Missions Month. What a privilege to hear from so many of our missionaries and be challenged by their work. The Men’s Breakfast and Ladies Dinner were great times of fellowship.
Nothing can replace that wonderful Sunday evening when on our 50th anniversary the Lord was so good to us allowing us not only to meet but surpass the goal. It is with grateful hearts we thank you for listening to what the Lord would have you do. Please pray with us as the year progresses that God would provide.
