We had a wonderful evening of Youth and Confirmation tonight. Thank you to Beth and Jason who helped with Confirmation, to the youth who are continuing to work and plan for their mission trip, and to the Confirmands for putting together Easter Baskets for our homebound members.

I pray that you will all have a very holy "Holy Week" as you contemplate the God we serv, the God who loved us so much that He was willing to become one of us and walk through all of life with us.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Laurie
