APRIL CHURCH NEWS

MESSAGE FROM PASTOR TIM

Dear Church Family,

I hope you are ready for Spring! I always love the Church Family Reunion Picnic! On April 10, all three services come together in a time to enjoy and renew. We don’t all get to see each other very often, so make plans to be at the picnic.

Three services give us great options, but it also complicates our relationships. I know I don’t like the fact that I am in a hurry to leave both the 8:30 and 9:45 services just to keep up each Sunday. I would much rather stay and talk and hug. But that is life all around. Lots to do and limited time. 

April is a big month for the church. Our Missions Team, Finance Team and Business Meeting all come this month. In each we have exciting things to discuss as the Lord continues to bless us deeply. It is also a time when many come to visit, particularly on Easter! Oh, what a glorious day as we celebrate our Savior’s resurrection! Without Resurrection Day, we have nothing. With it, spring has all the more meaning as new life bursts upon us all.

See you Sunday!

Pastor Tim
