Now That Easter Is Over…

At Easter we celebrate because the tomb where Jesus was buried was found empty. His followers realized that He is not dead but alive! After that first Easter though, it wasn’t the empty tomb that became the symbol of the Christian faith, it was the cross. Ever wonder why?

There are some good reasons the early church identified with the cross. The message of the cross is about mankind’s relationship with God and the need for a sacrifice. Why would God need someone to die in our place? What kind of God would kill His own Son? What does the cross mean to us today? These are hard questions that deserve an answer. You may have noticed that life is not always wonderful. We want you to know that God is there for you not only in the good times, but also when life is hard and painful; when questions and doubts come in waves.

Our services are at 9:00 and 11:00 AM on Sunday morning. We have a nursery available during the message at both services and our children’s ministry, Kingdom Quest, starts at 11:00 for kids ages 3-12. Dress is casual.

Whatever your relationship with God, skeptic, agnostic, atheist, or believer, you are welcome.

24 Hour Prayer

In the Old Testament, God told the prophet Joel to “…proclaim a solemn assembly. Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and the nursing infants…” We believe God is again calling people everywhere to come together and pray. This Friday from 5PM until 5PM on Saturday people will be gathering at our building each hour to pray. We will be asking God to have mercy on our land, to bless us, and help us to spread the Good News about Jesus Christ. Want to join us? To sign up for a time slot, just email us. We’ll be praying for you.
