Good April All,
The month of April this year is busy; it seems that every Sunday, there is something important and special happening at the church.
I don’t know how many of you saw my pictures on Facebook from the night of March 23rd, but the sight was astonishing. Steph and I went for a drive to see the Northern Lights. The colors, and the movement, really make someone think about God and the beauty that the earth beholds. To me, it is far beyond what is imaginable. But it also seems like a reward to see nature’s beauty when we can. Then again, maybe it is a reminder for us to do better.
So, just a short reminder, April 2nd is Palm Sunday. This Sunday, we will be shouting and singing Hosannas while we wave palm branches. There will NOT be communion this Sunday. After church, we will be having our Potluck.
April 6th, we celebrate Maundy Thursday at 7 pm. Let’s come together as we hear the Last Supper. We will be celebrating communion, so if you join us on Zoom, make sure you bring your elements.
April 7th, we will be coming together again at 7 pm to look at Jesus’ death. This is a time to recognize what is happening in your lives and what you would like to put away.
April 9th, Easter. Come and join the resurrection celebration at 10 am. We will need many hands to help decorate the church at the beginning of the service. So, if you are willing to, make sure you show up about 15 minutes before church starts so we can find you something to help decorate.
April 16, 3rd- Grade Bibles will be handed out. This is an important step in their Christian lives. So, if you are in 3rd or 4th grade or if we have missed you because of covid, let the church office know so we can make sure that we have a Bible for you.
April 19th, Chicken Dinner. Calling: all hands on deck. Please join us in preparation, cooking, cleaning, and conversing. We have a spot for you. If you haven’t signed up, give Liz Curren a call, she will help.
April 23rd, Confirmation Sunday. Come and Celebrate the two confirmands, Miss Miranda Harting and Jacob Reeck. There will be cake after the service.
April 26th, Pastor Greg’s Birthday!!!!!
Okay, I am joking with the last one.
But, as you can see, there is plenty of opportunity for discipleship this month. Come and take part in the celebrations and the joy.
Have a Great Month,
Pastor Greg Leslie
