As we move into April the colors around us will change from brown to green. Lawn mowers will be dusted off, people will spend more time outside, children will be on their bikes, and trees will show signs of new growth.
It’s only fitting that Easter falls right at the beginning of spring. We’re reminded during this season about the new life that is promised to us through Christ. We’ve been reminded that in no way can we make it on our own, but that only through Christ are we made a new creation. Just as the disciples saw a new day after Christ’s resurrection, we too are given a new day this Easter season. My hope during this time of newness is that we will each discover again how much God loves us, how much grace has been poured out to us, and how our renewed spirits may better serve our Lord.
This month we are planning to break ground on our expansion building project. We covet your prayers as we get started. This project will give our building the much needed extra room. The sanctuary will hold almost twice the number of people, we will have new larger bathrooms, more storage area, and a new outside courtyard area. Please be in prayer that the project will be move quickly along and will be problem free. Also pray as to what the Lord would ask you to give. The cost of the project is estimated to be $300,000 and we have raised approximately $130,000. Praise the Lord!
