News and Notes

Holy Week Devotional Project: Phyllis has come up with a great idea for a Holy Week Devotional Project. (Actually, she does admit she's "borrowing" the idea from other places that have done it.)

We would love everyone (adults and children alike) to make a cross out of whatever material they would like: paper, fabric, cards, felt or whatever else. It does not need to be perfect or artistic. As far as size goes, the length of a fork or knife is a good guide. Crosses may be free hand or traced, then cut out and brought on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, or Easter. They will be mounted on our Easter Banner by the front doors.

Some samples that Phyllis has made are in the narthex. If you have any questions, you can speak with her.

The Lord's blessings as you ponder the ransom he paid for you on the cross.


No Bible class next week due to Easter. On April 7 we continue through the Gospel of Matthew. We’ll listen to seven parables of Jesus in Matthew 13 as Jesus brings out the treasures of the kingdom of God.
