Pastor Robert, a Buckeye Fan?????????

In front of over 200 people at our Wednesday evening Food Court last evening, Pastor Rick Tettau grabs a microphone and gets everyone's attention.

"I'm happy to announce that Pastor Robert is now a Buckeye fan."

Everyone begins to cheer and celebrate that this Pennsylvania kid has finally seen the light. Just as the roar dies down, Pastor Rick offered these words:

"April Fools!"

As we approach Holy Week (week of April 5) and begin to think about what Jesus has done for us by dying on the cross to offer us forgiveness of our sins, mercy, and newness of life, we realize that this is no April Fools. The events of Holy Week really did happen and Jesus went through all the pain, suffering, and agony to offer us salvation.


See you for Holy Week services:

Sunday, April 5 - Passion/Palm Sunday Worship, 8:30/9:45/11:00
Thursday, April 9 - Maundy Thursday Service, 7 P.M.
Friday, April 10 - Good Friday Service, Noon
