THIS COMING SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We will be celebrating a special day of Worship in Song on April 7 (this coming Sunday.) Our Worship Choir, narrators, and guest instrumentalists will offer our Easter Cantata on that day at our 8:30 and 11 am worship services. The 8:30 and 11 am services will be identical that day - come to either!
Also, our Praise Band OVERFLOW will be offering a very special “Easter themed” Worship in Song service at THE WELL at 9:45 on Sunday. Come to any or all of these services to be embraced by the Spirit of God through song. Our goal is to sing the story at all 3 services on April 7 in preparation to live the story in WORD through Holy week April 14 - 21.
ps: If you were unable to pick up your Relay for Life Daffodils last night, they are in the refrigerator in the MAC kitchen with your name on them. You may pick them up at your convenience. Thank you!

A Note from Your Finance Team
………………. . …… .Received……….. .YTD Received
March 3rd…………$24,132……………….$ 206,896
March 10th………..$16,283………………$ 223,179
March 17th………..$19,237………………$ 242,417
March 24th………..$10,057………………$ 252,474
March 31st………..$35,702………………$ 288,176
We appreciate the extra mile giving response to our plea to help giving return to our January and February levels. The March 31 number is up and that is greatly appreciated - although $10,000 of that number was given by a person outside of the church as dedicated giving for a Children’s playground upgrade. However, a $25,702 fifth Sunday is still a significant step forward and is greatly appreciated. Our prayer is that our giving levels return in April. Thank you everyone for your sacrificial giving.
Please continue to remember your Church in your legacy trusts & wills - that gift is also greatly appreciated!
