Over the Coffee

We have a number of exciting things in store for this April. We continue in our

Lenten Series with a breakfast and teaching time on Sunday morning, April 2nd at 9:30

in the morning. We will have our last Wednesday Lenten Lunch and Meditation on

Wednesday, April 5th at 11:00 a.m. On Holy Week we will not meet on Wednesday, but

will have our traditional Upper Room service with communion on Maundy Thursday,

April 13th at 6:30 p.m. The last Lenten Series breakfast will be on Sunday, April 9th.

Also that Sunday we will have a baptism service for Justin and Ashley Barrett.
