Living Last SupperThe LIVING LAST SUPPER will be presented on Sunday evening, April 9th (Palm Sunday) @ 6:00 p.m. in our Sanctuary. This Tableau takes a closer look at a famous religious painting, The Last Supper by Leonardo De Vinci. Leonardo chose to portray the moment just after Our Lord had said “One of you will betray me”. Instantly the twelve apostles became men of twelve different moods and personalities. Only Jesus remained composed. These men will construct a living reproduction of this moment during the Last Supper.
“Is it I who will betray the Master?”

Everyone Can Serve

Look for opportunities to serve; don't wait to be asked!  Remember, you can serve without being a part of an "official" ministry. We all can:

  • Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
  • Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
  • Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evengelism team
  • Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.

The 2017 Church Directory is available for you to pick up either at the church office or in the back of the Sanctuary. The 2016 Annual Report is also available. It’s always amazing to read all that has happened in the past year at our church.

Working Pastor

1On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. (Luke 24:1-3)

Sometimes there is frustration when looking for something and not finding it. Or having plans and making preparations and then not being able to accomplish the action. But if this was ever not true it was the day the ladies came to the tomb of Jesus. They were obviously teary eyed and broken hearted on that early morning journey. Their dreams were lost and their hope of a new life with new direction was gone. They had the duty of preparing the body that had been hurriedly committed a few days before. This could not have been a pleasant task but one that they were up to doing because of their love for Jesus. What must of the conversations been like on the walk to the tomb. Did they question the great amount of time they had spent with Jesus? Were they angry with the Roman government and the leaders of their people for this horrible act? Or were they thinking of how much Jesus loved them and what great miracles He had performed in their presence? Was their hope or only despair? We will never know the answers to all our questions concerning these first witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus. But we know that the moment was difficult for them to understand or believe. It seems it took Jesus approaching them and a conversation with them to convince them that He was alive. Can we only imagine the change of attitude at that very moment of faith? He is raised just as He said. The tears of sadness turn to tears of joy. Broken hearts and broken dreams find reinstatement in the realization that all He said is true. Now only one thing was left to do. Go as quickly as possible to the male disciples and share the amazing news. My question to all of us this Resurrection season is: on what part of this journey do we find ourselves? Are we broken hearted by plans that have failed and frustrated for not finding what we were looking for in our lives? Are we simply determined regardless the difficulty of just getting what is before us done. Or do we live with new hope? Do we live in the reality that Jesus lives and lives in us? Does that change everything? If so we have something to tell! Men may not believe us but the truth is that Jesus is alive and we are therefore changed forever. God bless you as you journey. May it bring you to the empty tomb and to life eternal! PK

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONSCome and meet people

Pastor Keith’s Connection Class “The Battle Plan for Prayer” has 4 more weeks to go. You are more than welcome to be a part of it on any given Sunday. We meet in the Sanctuary, at 11:15, right after our Fellowship Time. “The Struggle is Real...but so is the Power of Prayer” Join Us!

Many of us who love the church, have found that one of the most powerful life changing aspects of the church is being in a group of people that help and encourage us along the way. In fact most churches that are experiencing real growth have discovered that groups are really the way to help people with their spiritual journey and ministry. To this end the Vision Team has been wrestling with the best way to launch some long-term groups that are shaped and centered in encouraging each participant and educating them con-cerning the themes and message of the Bible. So we are going to begin these kinds of groups in what we have formally called for a number of years discipleship classes. We would like to recognize the function of the groups by calling them Connections. The emphasis being that of connecting with others and establishing the kind of contact that issues in accountability and its resultant fruit i.e. peace, joy, love. We expect some evolution in how these groups operate. What we do have is a beginning date: Sunday September 21st. More information will be coming up. (Watch weekly bulletins) This is going to be a significant opportunity for you and yours. It will include all ages. There will be new groups forming for those who consider themselves young adults that will be meeting at different times and perhaps in different loca-tions. If you feel disconnected this may be your time to find that connection in your church.

Job Opening at the Community Church

Help!After twenty-seven years as our faithful Church Secretary and now Church Administrator, Dianne VanArsdol is retiring. She will continue to be a faithful church member and highly involved in our ministry. We will have a time to celebrate her work and service as the time for her retirement approaches. She plans on retiring the first of June this year, but will be taking her vacation and thus leaving the office the middle of May. The General Board and the Pastor will be working on a replacement. We would like to include the work of the Treasurer in the Office Administrator’s position. So we will be looking for applicants with computer skills and some accounting background. The applicant will work closely with the Pastor and have a major role in greeting guests to the church, answering phone calls and being a liaison between the Pastor and those who visit the office. This is a very important part of our ministry here at the church. Please pray about the Lord’s call upon the person He would desire to take on this ministry.
