Pastor’s Update

Holy Week

Dear Church,

This Sunday we will gather and celebrate what we call “Palm Sunday”, the day Jesus entered Jerusalem “triumphantly.” We will study the account from Luke 19:28-41 and discuss the prophetic importance of this event as well as the very real potential we have to miss the true purposes of God because of our own personal “God agendas.”

Join us at 9:30 and 11:00am as we gather for Palm Sunday. Then, plan to be with us on Good Friday at 5:30 or 7:00pm to remember the crucifixion of Jesus and Easter Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:15, 10:30, or 11:45am to celebrate the power of the resurrection of Jesus. Invite someone who needs to hear the life changing message of the Gospel.

Many blessings to all of you as we enter this most holy season of the year.

He is risen!

Pastor Brian
