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.

Keep in mind that April 9th is Palm Sunday and April 16th is Easter Sunday. On Easter Sunday we will have a devotional time on the lawn (weather permitting) at 9:00 and an Easter breakfast at 9:30. Our worship will be as normal at 10:30 with an Easter Egg Hunt for children after the morning service – perhaps a little before noon.!

The new officers for the Columbus Baptist Association will be installed at a special service at the New Life Baptist Church in Columbus on Tuesday night, April 25th at 7:00 p.m. New members of the board to be installed include Mrs. Helena Bush as our new CBA president, and I will be installed as the new CBA vice president. Rev. Jane Gibbons, our Area Minister, will be the speaker. More details later but you are all invited.

Grass is turning green around town and spring seems very near. May we all enjoy this special season.
