THIS SUNDAY IN WORSHIP
This Sunday we hope you will join us in person at 8:30am or 10:30am. The service will also be posted on Facebook and You Tube. Our message this week by Pastor Mark is “It is Finished”. There will also be a special guest sharing with us at the services – the Centurion at the Cross. At both services, all of our children are invited to help with opening the service with a processional of palm branches. Plan to meet in the Narthex just before the service if you would like to participate.
