There will be a yard sale to raise money for VBS expenses on Saturday, April 30th. If you have good used items that you no longer need (don’t we all) please donate them for the yard sale.
If you have any questions, if you have something to donate or if you would like to volunteer, please see Bonnie or Shirley.

Junior Church

Thank you again for allowing us to bring Jr. Church out in the "big"  church. We certainly enjoyed having all the adults participate in worship with us. Thank you also to all of those that have contributed to Jr. Church by bringing snacks, paper goods, gifts for the box, offering and most of all your prayers. We are so grateful to have Tommy and Shirley Stanton helping us, as you saw there are lots of things to help with and they are great helpers.

This week we will be presenting a skit introducing the story of the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, called Rock Talk. The skit addresses the part of the story about the rocks crying out if the people didn't praise Jesus. We will be teaching about the crucifixion and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What an awesome time of the year for us Christians to ponder on the things that our Lord has done for us.

Pray that we will always conduct Jr. Church in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Thank you for keeping us all in your prayers. God Bless, Bobby, April, Connor and Rachel   Due to sunrise services and Easter Sunday we would like to participate in the "big" church ,we will not have any Jr. Church next Sunday March 27.We will continue with Jr. Church the following week. God Bless.

Thought for Today

Church Is Cheaper

A woman took her two small boys and a daughter to see Peter Pan at the matinee one Saturday afternoon. The tickets were two dollars and fifty cents each. The young daughter watched as the mother pushed ten one dollar bills under the window and received four tickets.

The next day the same mother and daughter were at church. When the collection was taken the child saw her mother open her purse, take out a quarter, and put it in the plate as it passed them.

The little girl looked up at her mother and in a clear stage whisper which everyone around could hear said, "Mother, church is a lot cheaper than a movie, isn't it?


If you paid your bills as faithfully as you pay your tithes would your electricity still be on?

If you paid your tithes as faithfully as you pay your bills would the church be in need?

A more efficient budget will not solve the financial struggles of the church.

A more faithful Christian will.

ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
