Church News and Announcements

Thanks to all “Find It Here” helpers! We had an incredible turnout as 24 church members delivered the “Find It Here” bags to all of the houses on our assigned streets. Thanks for everyone who helped us to deliver the materials, and let us all pray that the Holy Spirit would use what has been passed out to encourage our neighbors to attend church and begin a relationship with Jesus.

Associational Bible Drill has been moved to March 31. We are all so proud of Taylor Gray, Lyric Brown, and Lauren Hahn and for their hard work preparing for the Bible Drill. Please be in prayer for them and come out and support them on Wednesday Night, March 31, at 7pm. in our fellowship hall as we observe our

Marci Wilham is going to Haiti and needs our prayers and support.
She will be leaving on March 31, and returning on April 10. The following is from her support letter:

“There will be many opportunities to witness to people in the community that we will be working with daily. Our goal is to share Christ’s love with everyone we come in contact with. We hope to do this on a spiritual and physical level as we provide for the Haitian people. I am so blessed to have been given this opportunity to share God’s word, and I would appreciate all the support that could be given. The cost of the mission trip is $2000. This amount will cover airfare, food, and sheltering needs. Your thoughts, prayers, and donations would be such a blessing for not only me, but for the Haitian people as well. In supporting me you will be selflessly helping God’s children who cannot provide for themselves at the time.”

To read her full letter, see the blog post below. Let’s all pray for Marci as she goes. If the Lord leads you to give towards her trip, please do so this Sunday.

The Great “Cup” Exchange. This past Sunday, we looked at Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and at the meaning of the “cup” that Christ had to drink. This cup was the cup of the Wrath of God mentioned throughout the Bible. Jesus drank of the cup of the wrath of God in full for us so that we might drink from a different cup - the cup of salvation.

May we grow in our thankfulness for such a great Salvation that Christ has provided for us as we journey through this Easter Season!

- Bro. Dave
