This Sunday's Sermon and Song List
Based on this last year what would you say people believe about the 'meaning of life'? Would it be crazy to say that most people are acting like the meaning of life is just to stay alive? Maybe they'd say the meaning of life is to improve on living conditions through political or moral reform? What did this last year reveal about what we think this life is all about? What if something has already happened in history 2000 years ago that shows us what life is all about? What if someone came back to life after being dead and never died again? Would he know something about what life was all about? Could he tell us? Better yet, could he show us? Join us as we sit under a call to embrace the true meaning of life in the knowledge of the One who conquered death and lives. 
Here are the songs we'll be singing together along with a link to a playlist so you can prepare yourself to sing out this Sunday:
  • Living Hope
  • Revelation Song
  • Turn Your Eyes
  • O Praise The Name
We created a playlist on Youtube in case you want to start listening today. You can find that by clicking HERE.
Journal on How YOU Can Build Up Your Church
Do you have a desire to see your church built-up and grow in strength for ministry? I think all of us do! We just don't always know how to make it happen. Consider this resource from 9Marks. 9Marks normally focuses on training resources for pastors but they've assembled this journal especially for church members who want to help their church be encouraged and built up. Here's a few examples of the available articles followed by a free, online edition of the journal. 
Articles Include:
  • Prepare to Hear God's Word
  • Sing to One Another
  • Be Like Batman: Guard the Gospel
  • Pray for Other Members
  • Speak Only What is Good to Give Grace
  • Evangelize the Lost
  • ...And More!
Resurrection Sunday Coffee Fellowship
Please join us at 9:30AM for donuts, coffee, juice, and fellowship! We will gather in the fellowship area.
Good Friday Plans: Singing at Meridian Bridge
Friday, April 2nd @ 6:00PM

This year for Good Friday we want to think "outside the walls" and gather at the Meridian Bridge for a short but sweet time of singing. Think of it like Christmas Caroling but with Good Friday songs instead! We want to enjoy publicly being the church, enjoy praising Jesus publicly and ask the Lord to use that time to help us be a witness to our community. The songs will be simple and singable and we'll have a 10-minute (or so) devotion. Pray for good weather (at the time of writing the forecast says 70 and sunny that day). Pray also for lots of people to come. Most of all pray for our public witness to generate some conversations with people about the gospel. 

*We will gather in the grass lot just to the North of First Street. 

If you're interested we also have a playlist on our Youtube channel of "Good Friday" songs to meditate on in preparation for tonight and Sunday. You can listen to that by CLICKING HERE.
Women's Prayer Meetings
Prayer, prayer and more prayer. All women are encouraged to participate in our prayer time Thursday, April 15, at 7:00 PM. We will meet in the Women's Ministry area and will dedicate our time to prayer for individuals, our church, our city and area, our state, and our nation. We plan to meet for prayer every first Thursday at 2:00 PM and third Thursdays at 7:00 PM throughout 2021. Please join us!

NO TURNING BACK - The Message of Hebrews
This Sunday we continue our Sunday school class through the book of Hebrews. No Turning Back is the message of this timeless letter. Hebrews is a letter for the soul that is powerfully tempted to run from Christ and trust in what's familiar. Hebrews gives us a picture of Christ as the better and more lasting shelter from every fear and trouble. Join us in the worship center at 9:00 AM for this new journey through Hebrews.
