Easter Weekend is coming

Plan ahead for Easter Weekend!

Good Friday service March 25 is at 7:00pm. There will be expanded child care this year through 5th grade (a separate program for them in the gym), but all families are welcome to worship together.

Easter Sunday services March 27 will be at the normal Sunday times, 9:00 and 11:00am. There is child care available for infants through 3 year olds, but no Sunday School classes that morning.

Most Sung in 2015

Which songs did we sing most often in 2015? Here are the results —

JESUS PAID IT ALL 12 times. Well, no surprise. DOXOLOGY was used 9 times.

10,000 REASONS & STRONGER tied at 6. Both songs consistently resonate with our multi generational congregation.

THE SAME LOVE & THIS IS AMAZING GRACE tied at 5 times. 8 other songs tied at 4.

Anything surprise you? I’m always a little amazed we didn’t do certain songs more than we actually did! All others were 3 or less, many just one time in 2015. Typically in the new year I try to ‘retire’ a few more songs on my list, and add a few others.

Living Nativity dates

Nativity is back!

This season our Living Nativity outreach will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday December 18-20, from 6 to 9pm each night.

The program this year is simpler and concentrated on the manger scene, and includes a small music team, an angel choir, Mary & Joseph & baby Jesus, and a narrator. We are having kids from our AWANA program read the Luke 2 story this year. The Angel Choir will be made up of boys & girls ages 5-12, and will sing along on a few songs on risers with the music team and audience. Each fifteen minute presentation will be followed by a 5 minute break, and we’ll do 3 of them an hour.
