Join us in Celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord 

Good Friday 30 March 7:00 PM
Easter Vigil 31 March 8:00 PM
Easter Sunday 1 April 8:15 AM & 11:00 AM 
From the Pastor
Today is Good Friday.  On this day, we remember all that Jesus accomplished for us by way of his innocent suffering and death on the cross.  
   We remember that he has crushed the serpent's head.  We remember that he has taken away the power of sin and death over us.  We remember that he has even satisfied the just wrath of God due to sinners. 
   Because our Lord suffered and died in such a way, there can be no mistake about God's love for us.  "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).  We are Jesus' friends.  We know we are his friends, because he has died for us.  
God's blessings to you on this Good Friday!
