Spring Forward with the Promise

"We are marching, we are marching, we are marching, oh—ho, we are marching in The Light of God.  We are marching, we are marching, we are marching, oh—ho, we are marching in The Light of God." 


This March, we continue marching forward together with a spring in our step as the Lord leads us by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit through the season of Lent in the Light of God.  It is a wonderful journey of faith in our fellowship for such a time as this when we watch what Jesus does (WWJD) anew in, through, and among us for God's glory and our good.


Last Sunday's dinner and a movie event was filled to overflowing with God's blessing of our extended community together with children, youth, young adults, singles, couples and families who participated in and for a delightful evening together.  Many were invited through friends on Facebook and personal invitations by members to neighbors, co-workers, and others in various venues and relationships. 


May God bless us as we continue to go ahead with God, seeking His face in the days to come.  Glory to God for the promise of renewing hope! 


In Christ,

Pastor Rex
