PALM SUNDAY COAT DRIVE: On Palm Sunday, crowds laid out their robes before Jesus as He entered Jerusalem. This year on Palm Sunday, April 13th, let’s join together as we enter into His house of worship to honor Him by bringing an offering of coats for our Clothing Closet. Let’s experience a beautiful time of worship as we offer Jesus our hearts as well as coats to be used to warm those in need.

GOOD FRIDAY MUSICAL: On Friday, April 18th, the Chancel Choir will present a musical reflection on the seven last words of Christ. This service of darkness will be at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. As followers of Christ, it is important that we walk through the darkness of Good Friday to experience the ultimate joy and hope of Easter.
