This year we will once again be having an early Easter service. We may call it our sunrise service, but we will begin at 7am out in front of the FLC, weather permitting. Then we will move inside for breakfast. This is always a highlight of our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. Other activities of the day include Sunday School at 9:40 and a special worship service at 11 am featuring special music by our sanctuary choir. No pm services. Enjoy spending time with your family.
Saturday, April 12 at 10 am we will host our annual Easter activities at the City Park. We will once again have lots of games and activities to teach families about the real meaning of Easter. Lots of volunteers are needed to assist with decorating cookies, leading crafts, serving hotdogs, and drinks, etc. We are asking for individually wrapped candy to stuff plastic eggs. See Melanie if you wish to help.
Sunday April 13th we will have a marriage enrichment mini-retreat. This is for all who are interested in learning how their marriage can be improved. Deacons and wives are urged to attend and their will be a brief get together of deacons between the sessions. Note: This will be in place of our normal breakfast meeting as we will be having a church wide breakfast the next week for Easter.
We are hosting Wayne and Tina Hudson who will be our leaders in the following schedule:
Breakfast at 8am in the REC
8:30-9:30 Session 1 (Childcare provided)
10:00-10:45 Session 2

Our Annie Armstrong Easter Offering goal is $4,000. Currently we are well on our way to reaching our goal. The theme for the year is Firmly Planted. The SBC goal is $70 Million.
The Gospel quartet Spoken 4 will be with us for the morning worship service on April 6th. This wonderful group has been with us before for our Valentine banquet and they always do an exceptional job. The service starts at 11 am. A love offering will be taken.
Friday, February 21st at the REC from 7-9pm Dr. Ronald Kent, well known pediatrician, will be sharing on the topic of Parenting on Purpose. Kids will enjoy activities in the gym with Melanie and parents and grandparents will meet in the worship area. Please call and let us know if you will be able to attend so we can make plans to accommodate everyone.
October 30th at 6:30 pm don’t miss the chance to witness Illuminate! The Bryan Drake Show. Bryan is a Christian Illusionist who will be in the public schools all week sharing his amazing skills as a prestidigitator and illusionist. During evening rallies at Crane Creek, Rolling Hills and at the Performing Arts Center at PRCC he will be sharing the Gospel along with his skills as an illusionist. Then, on Halloween during the Merchant’s Trick or Treat on Main Street, Bryan will be doing three shows, at 4 , 5, and 6pm out on a flatbed trailer in front of the courthouse. It is not too late to contact Melanie about helping with this massive effort to impact our community with the Good News. You can help distribute free hotdogs and popcorn, or pass out Gospel tracts and bracelets! All the shows are provided to the schools at no charge, and the performance at the beautiful new Brownstone venue is also being offered to the public at no charge. This is made possible by generous support of the churches of the North Pearl River Ministerial Alliance.
