Worship Series

April Sermon Series:

April will provide us with several special services. We will continue our series, “The God We Can Know” through the first three Sundays. The first Sunday, April 7, we will be blessed by two baptisms, the Fourth Street Ringers and communion.  April 14, Palm Sunday, the choir will be presenting a cantata in the 10:30 service.  We will be darkening the sanctuary in the early service that day. Then on April 21, we will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Our last Sunday of the month we will celebrate our food pantry and recognize all those who serve through this vital ministry. Please plan to join us for each of these services. Bring a friend with you.
