Transition Team Update

The Governance and Bylaws Teams would like to thank everyone who attended the March 10 meeting. The teams were encouraged by the turn-out and church body support.

An Encouraging Word: 2 Corinthians 12:9: But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Easter Sunday Service

“He is not here, He has risen, just as He said!” Those words, spoken by the angel at the empty tomb, are as true today as they were 2,000 years ago. In fact, no event in history has had more impact on the world than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Why is the resurrection so important? The Scripture tells us, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins…But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead!” We can now be forgiven of our sins and raised to eternal life by believing in Him. Come and celebrate the Risen Savior and all He’s done for us this Easter Sunday, April the 21!

Life Resource Center

Alive in Christ and Christ for Real by Charles W. Price

The rush of everyday life can leave us exhausted. Our attempts to know God and serve Him can seem futile. Spiritual life becomes an uphill struggle, tiring, frustrating, and unfulfilling. Surely there must be something better, and there is! The simplest, yet most profound, discovery that any Christian can make is that God has actually given us Himself to live in us and to be our strength as we grow into His likeness. Author Charles Price, who spoke at our Missions Conference in September, looks at the reality that all our strength, power, and life should come from Christ and what He has done for us. These books help to explain what “grace” really means.
