"May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."   
Romans 15:5-6

Church Office Hours this week
8:30am ~ 3:30pm 
Monday ~ Thursday

CLOSED on Good Friday (4/2/21) and Easter Monday (4/5/21)

Wearing a mask inside is required.

Our prayer Vigil is a special time between Good Friday and Easter Sunday where our members commit to maintaining time of constant prayer and reflection. Easter is a time to remember and celebrate the sacrifice our Savior made for us on the cross. What better way to do that than spending intentional time with Him in prayer.  Our Prayer Vigil begins after the Good Friday service on April 2nd and finishes right before our 6:30am Sunrise Easter service on April 4th.  Time slots are broken into one-hour increments and our goal is to get every time slot covered in prayer.  We have opportunities to come into our worship space in the gym to pray, as well as opportunities to cover our ministry in prayer at home.  Please sign up for whatever you feel comfortable with.

Let's all cover our ministry and people in prayer as we head into Holy Week, remembering what Jesus went through for us.  Blessings!

Journey back to the time of Jesus. Marvel at the magnificence of Herod’s palace. Scramble among the ruins of Qumran. And wonder at the simplicity and wisdom of Jesus’ parables. You and your group will discover how the events of Jesus’ day impacted his life, ministry and communication… and then you’ll learn how it affects yours.
