Our celebrations, services and events for Easter Week are as follows:

Maundy Thursday
April 2
Foot Washing 6 PM

   After Jesus washed the disciples’ feet, He said, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.  I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”    (John 13:14)
    There will be a signup sheet for the foot washing service, so we can know how to prepare.  See Lee Gernert if you would like more details.

Easter Celebration
Services at 9 AM
& 10:30 AM


We are thrilled to once again have Cody Mellinger with us at our 9:00 AM traditional worship service.  Hearing him play the trumpet will certainly send chills up and down your spines as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. 

Special music is also planned for our 10:30 AM Praise Service.

    Easter dramatically reminds us that we love and serve a risen savior.
