OLDER CHURCH NEWS
- Easter Cantata to be presented April 21 during regular service at 11 a.m. (4/14/2019)
This Easter, April 21, during our regular service, we will sing out these songs of redemption, thankfulness, and joyous worship that will remind us of the beautiful freedom that was given to us all through the Risen King, We are alive, Because He lives! Come and lift Him up! Hosanna!
“Freedom…a gift that is both so precious and so magnificent. A gift that did not come without a price…but was paid and granted. By way of the sacrificial death on the cross and the overwhelming destruction of the grave, freedom was given to us all. Through Christ the King, we are forever free!”
Come and celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord with us!
