Over the Coffee - April 2019

We continue in the Lenten Season to share around the theme of Religious

Freedom. April 10th will be our final Wednesday Lenten lunch, and our Maundy-

Thursday Upper Room Dinner and Communion will be on April 18th. Easter is

Sunday, April 21st. We will have an early prayer service on the lawn at 9:00 that

morning, followed by an Easter breakfast in place of Bible Fellowship at 9:30 – Easter

worship in the sanctuary at 10:30. The luncheons and study have been very enjoyable

for those who have come and we have learned together a lot about the early Christians

who settled New England.

The Columbus Baptist Association will have an installation service and reception

for new officers on Sunday afternoon, April 28th at 5:00 p.m. It will be here at North

Baptist and it would be nice to have as many in our congregation attend as possible.

The CBA is made up of our 33 American Baptist Churches in the Columbus metro area

and we rarely have the privilege of hosting them. So plan to come and share in our
