An Invitation from Our Pastor
As I write this message to you, the entire world is in an upheaval like none of us have ever witnessed, nor probably imagined. It is vitally important that we remember we are in our Father's mighty hands, and there is nothing that will prevail against us.
We welcome all people to our church! Our life and worship are celebrated in the love and forgiveness that is ours through Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are meant to live everyday in awe of Jesus.
If you long to find the well of living water; if you have ever heard that quiet voice inside asking, "Is this all there is?"; or if your normal life has left you bored or empty, we invite you to come and be with us.
We are a warm and friendly people who very much cares about each other. There are no strangers, only loved ones we have yet to meet. You'll see!
Due to the corona virus,
we have cancelled our Sunday Services and all activities requiring the use of the church facility through June 10th, unless we receive the go ahead for gatherings to resume earlier.
We will keep you posted.

HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR HOLY WEEK
FRIDAY - Arrival in Bethany - Jesus spent time with Mary, Martha and Lazarus. Mary anointed His feet with costly perfume as an act of humility.
SATURDAY - DAY OF REST - SABBATH
Not mentioned in the Gospels.
SUNDAY - THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY
On the first day of the week Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey fulfilling an ancient prophecy (Zechariah 9-9). The crowd welcomed Him with "Hosanna" and the words of Psalm 118:25-26, thus ascribing Him a Messianic title as the coming King of Israel.
MONDAY - THE CLEARING OF THE TEMPLE
He found the court of the Gentiles full of money changes and traders making a large profit as they gave out Jewish coins in exchange for "pagan" money. Jesus drove them out and overturned their tables.
TUESDAY - DAY OF CONTROVERSY AND PARABLES - IN JERUSALEM
Jesus evaded the traps set by the priests. Tuesday afternoon, exact location unknown, He taught in parables and warned the people against the Pharisees. He predicted the destruction of Heron's great temple and told His disciples about future events, including His own return.
WEDNESDAY - DAY OF REST
The scriptures do not mention this day, but the counting of the days (Mark 14:1 and John 12:1) seems to indicate that there was another day about which the Gospels record nothing.
THURSDAY - PASSOVER - THE LAST SUPPER
In an upper room Jesus prepared both himself and His disciples for His death. He gave the Passover meal a new meaning. The loaf of bread and the cup of wine represented His body soon to be sacrificed and His blood soon to be shed. And so He instituted the "lords' Supper." After singing a hymn they went to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed in agony, knowing what lay ahead for Him.
FRIDAY - CRUCIFIXION
Following betrayal, arrest, desertion, false trials, denial, condemnation, beatings and mockery, Jesus was required to carry His cross to "The Place of the Skull," where He was crucified with two other prisoners. IN THE TOMB - Jesus' body was placed in the tomb before 6 p.m. Friday night, when the Sabbath began and all work stopped, and it lay in the tomb throughout the Sabbath.
SUNDAY - RESURRECTION
Early in the morning, women went to the tomb and found that the stone closing the tomb's entrance had been rolled back. An angel told them Jesus was alive and gave them a message. Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene in the garden, to Peter, to two disciples on the road to Emmaus, and later that day to all the disciples but Thomas. His Resurrection was established as a fact.
