A Message from Pastor Stephanie
This Sunday in our Praise and Traditional services we will be looking at the ascension of Jesus Christ after his resurrection. This is a mysterious event that baffled the disciples but also left them hopeful and ready to take on the mission Christ left them. Join us as we celebrate the ascension of Jesus Christ!
A Message from Pastor Randy
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
This coming Monday is Memorial Day. As we ponder the sacrifice that so many have
made so that we can enjoy the freedom we so deeply cherish, I want to share with you
a poem I found:
Memorial Day Ponderings
It is a day we pause to think
about a chain formed link by link
that binds us to the liberties
that God desires for all.
It is a day for looking back
at how the mourners dreaded black
maintains the colors that we love...
the red, the white and blue.
In cemeteries far and near
small flags at grave sites make it clear
that freedom's price was freely paid
by those who spent their lives.
And so on this Memorial Day
we place a wreath and humbly pray
that these who died courageously
will not have died in vain.

Please take time this weekend to stop and to say a prayer for all our troops and their families. Pray a special prayer of thanksgiving for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and their families who mourn. If you are not traveling I hope you will join us for worship on Sunday.
