Jesus has risen!

The fire that lit the boiler of the New Testament church was an unquenchable belief that if Jesus had been only a man he would not have stayed in the tomb. The earliest Christians couldn’t stay silent about the fact the one they saw hung on the cross walked again on the earth and appeared to 500 people.

Lord, thank you for the sweet surprise of Easter morning. We are thankful that when you arose from your sleep of death, you didn’t go immediately to Heaven, but instead you went and visited your people. This visit of love reminds us that it was for people you died. – Max Lucado

Word was received on March 1 that a long time member of our church has passed away in Georgia. Our prayers go to the family of Ethel Krohn.

Reverend Arnold Downey blesses us by performing our church services frequently. A Canadian who resides in Maricopa during winter months, he has served our Lord for 54 years.

Please join us in our festive worship on Easter morning as we celebrate our risen Savior. Pianist Elaine Friesen will play and the choir will present the cantata Service of Joy and Reflection. The dynamic minister, Jim Baugh, will bless us with his message and his beautiful singing voice. In addition, we offer you our friendship.

A potluck dinner was held after Sunday service on February 15 and was well received. The food was bountiful and delicious.

One of the church missions is to provide clothing each February for the Latin American Church of the Nazarene in downtown Chandler. Thanks to all who donated. The filled boxes were very much appreciated by the recipients.
