Easter Calendar

Don't forget the Easter activities this week:

Good Friday service - 7:00 PM
Easter breakfast - 9:00 AM
Easter Worship - 10:30 AM

There will be special music in both services.

It's Spring!

According to the calendar, which is an objective source of information, today is the first day of spring! Hallelujah!

Of course, it may not look like it. Ice covered the roads on my morning commute. Snow is still mounded high in areas, and mud and water abound. The thermometer still hovers near freezing.

But it's SPRING!

Just the thought of it brightens the spirit and encourages the mind. Thoughts turn from the seemingly incessant dreariness that was February and March, and toward green, and sun, and breezes, and flowers. It's SPRING!

It's interesting, isn't it, how just knowing something is true brings encouragement, even when we can't see the reality of it. Our spiritual journey is like that. "We walk by faith, not by sight." There are times we wonder if the troubles and difficulties and stresses of life will ever end (kinda like February in NE Ohio), but the Bible (which is an objective source of information) promises that spring will come. "There remaineth therefore a rest for the people of God."

Breathe in the spring air, and rejoice in the promise it brings!

Services Cancelled - 3/9/2008

Brothers and Sisters,

Due to the blizzard we are experiencing, we will not hold services tomorrow, 3/9/2008. Stay warm and inside if you can, and spend a few minutes praising God and reading His Word tomorrow morning - He is good!

In Christ,
