  • March 25th...We begin the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Our goal is $2250.

  • March 28th...No Wednesday Night services.

  • March 29th… Maundy Thursday Services at 7 p.m. in the Moore Family Life Center. All ages are invited to participate. We will observe the Lord’s Supper and remember the last supper that Jesus had with his disciples. The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another. Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17).

  • March 30th… Good Friday is a Christian observance held two days before Easter Sunday and it commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Good Friday for many is a day of fasting and penance for practicing Christians. Many go to church service where candles are extinguished and crosses are draped in cloth. It is a day of limited activity with prayer and reflection on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Good Friday is the day where Jesus was crucified on the cross on the orders of the Roman governor Pontius Pilate. Jesus suffered on the cross for 6 hours. This day represents to Christians the sacrifice and suffering of Jesus' life.

  • March 31st… Egg Hunts for the children with Easter stories and activities. See Youth & Children’s News for times and places.

  • April 1st… Easter Sunday/Resurrection Day! We as Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from his death on the cross.
