  • Thank you for making March a good month. We are looking forward to a good April as well. I appreciate Jarret speaking on Wednesday night while I was at my annual Chaplain’s Conference.

    You still have time to contribute to the community Gateway ministry. We are trying to get this ministry to sexually abused children. 

    Spring break, as you know, is the first week of April. We will not have any Wednesday night activities. We will be back to our regular schedule on April 7.

    Have a nice forever!

    The things that remind us of spring are wonderful. To me, they are happy things. That includes even the clouds that come with the rain! Spring in the air just gives you a good feeling deep inside. I wish sometimes we as Christians could come drifting in more with that touch of spring in our steps. We should be a breath of fresh air to those we meet and come in contact with. We know the Truth and it should spill out in our lives. 

    When we meet people, we should be like a ray of sunshine because we have good news of a great and mighty God to share. It's so amazing what wonderful joy the Lord gives to us as Christians. The strength that joy brings to our lives should make us walk with that spring in our step every day. Because of that joy, we should have a smile on our face and love in our hearts. 

    We have to remember that God is our Maker. I hope that I can be just the breath of fresh air that can touch another life because of what Christ has done for me and is doing in my life.

    Fishing Rodeo-   April 27th    7:00-12:00



    July 14th-18th

    TO REGISTER go to:

  • Easter celebrates the abundant, everlasting life of Jesus. As believers, the intention of our lives is not death, but life and resurrection in and through Jesus.  Jesus’ I am statements in John show us that He the only way to salvation:

    “I am the bread of life”

    “I am the light of the world”

    “I am the door”

    “I am the good shepherd”

    “I am the resurrection and the life”

    “I am the way, the truth, and the life”

    “I am the vine”

    According to God’s great mercy, we have a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to an inheritance that is imperishable, kept in heaven for us. Amen! 


    -Our D Now conference will be rescheduled in the fall. Thank you again to those who blessed us with the offer to serve or through donation.  

    -Our t-shirt fundraiser will begin this month to assist with funds for our upcoming youth trip and other opportunities for the youth. 

    -Mark your calendars for Bingo night on May 9th. There will be a silent auction this evening as well.  More details to come.

    -Senior Sunday will be May 19th, just before Graduation. If you are willing to assist with the lunch that day please see me.  Parents of seniors, please let me know if your child will participate by April 28th.  

    Thank you for your continued support of the youth program. 

  • A Note From Beth


    This year has been great so far with so many wonderful events and opportunities for worship! April is full of activities that I pray you can enjoy.


    First, the Adult singles (ages 30-50) will be having a board game & potluck night on April 12th at 6:00pm in the social hall. Bring your favorite dish and favorite board game and let's have some fellowship and fun! 


    As always, the young adults will have their Bible study on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm in the social hall. A special THANK YOU to the ladies of hope for providing supper for this group; you are an absolute blessing! 


    Choir meets in the upstairs choir room at 3:30pm on Sunday afternoons for rehearsal. There’s always room for one more! A special thank you to everyone who helped and participated in our Easter musical; it was a blessing! 


    Even though Easter is over, we still have a reason to celebrate! In fact, every time we meet on Sundays we are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. In fact, Peter reminds us in his first book why we celebrate: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3) Even though we focus our excitement on resurrection Sunday, our hope continues every other day of the year as well. Even in the midst of all of our sin, Jesus came anyway. 1 Corinthians 15:21 reminds us, "For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.” It only took the actions of Adam and Eve to condemn mankind to an eternity without Christ. But that wasn’t good enough for our Savior. Praise be to God, He made a way for us to come to know Him and be saved by Him through His Son on the cross. May we celebrate what He did for us every day, not just on Easter!
