No time to rest on Resurrrection Sunday. The day started out at 6 a.m. with Sunrise Services at Young Life, Lost Canyon followed by the annual youth sponsored Easter Pancake Breakfast. Then the little ones were treated with an Easter egg hunt, all before the most important moment of the day, The Resurrection Worship Service. The message Pastor Billy gave was great also, "Jesus' Resurrection Gives New Life". The Young Disciples made resurrection tombs, depicting Jesus' rising from the dead, and special cross necklaces. All in all it was a very special Resurrection Sunday.
Spring is here and it's time to spruce up the Church after a long winter. April 20, we will all come together for some much needed maintenance and cleaning projects. All are welcome to come and help. Lunch will be served.
