not-for-profit organization that exists to help churches and organizations around the world share God’s love with people who have intellectual disability. Their Mission is to enable them to become an active part of God’s family. We are endeavoring to raise $1500 for their work. If we exceed $1500,
any excess will be redirected into our Community Care Fund to
assist other needy individuals or mission partners.

 

Prayer Room
The prayer room is open all the time! If you would like to come at a time that the offices are closed, please call the office to arrange to have it open for you!
We would really encourage you to spend some time and be part of what God is stirring us to become. Come during the day or in the evening. Come before work…or after. Bring your spouse…or your children, or your grandchildren! Drag your small group along! Get together with a friend or just come on your own and rest in the tranquility of spending time alone with God.

Creative Arts
The painting you see today has been created by Emily Fehlauer and is her interpretation of John 20:1-31.

Here is what Emily had to say about her painting titled “Bittersweet Joy.”
Though the miracle of bringing Lazarus back to life was a joyful experience for those around, Jesus himself was greatly troubled and He wept. This could have been for many reasons but I believe the most important reason was that it was a reminder that in the near future, he would be paying the ultimate cost and bearing the sin of all. Jesus’ eye is reflecting the scene before Him where Lazarus is being resurrected from the dead, and the image of the tear hints of the future that he was very likely thinking about at the time.

 

COMMUNITY CARE OFFERING
Next Sunday, April 5th, we will collect the community care
offering. This month’s Community Care Offering is designated to go toward individuals in our church and neighborhood who need benevolent help.  We will specifically earmark $500 of this
offering to help pay for meal supplies that our Pastoral Care Team will need for the important work they do in meal distribution for various people in distress. Just so you know, we distributed approx. $3000 of benevolent help to individuals in the past 12 months!

 

SAVE THE DATE!
