THANK YOU

We can’t begin to thank you enough for your kindness! The quilt made by the “Sewing Seeds of Love” ministry is just beautiful and knowing so many of you tied the knots with your Prayers, makes it even more beautiful! Thanks again for being the hands and feet of Jesus for us and for continuing your prayers IN HIM! – Tom & Connie Shaffer and John Diver

PALM SUNDAY FAMILY ART PROJECT: Kids and their families are invited to stay for Sunday School on March 24th (Palm Sunday) to work on an Easter art project! We will be putting together table displays of “the empty tomb” that each family can take home to remind them of why we celebrate our risen Savior on Easter Sunday!!!
There is a sign-up sheet on the Welcome Center, or you can let the kids’ Sunday School teachers know if your family is interested in creating the project during Sunday School on the 24th. Each child is welcome to make one, or you can make just one for your family. Just let us know how many projects to prepare.
*Please sign up by March 10th so supplies can be bought and prepared!!!
