Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt

Next Sunday we will be continuing our new message series on doubt. In reality, if you are a Christian you have probably doubted your salvation at some point in your spiritual walk. If you are not yet a Christian, it is probably due to some unresolved doubt. Many have done much in recent days to cast doubt on Christ. Throughout this series we will tackle the issue of doubt and how we can move beyond the shadow of a doubt by understanding the presuppositions involved and weighing all the evidence available. I hope you will take time to join us this Sunday at 9:30 or 10:45 as we take on the doubts of John the Baptist and Doubting Thomas.

Easter Sunday Report

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to give you an update as to how God has blessed our church this past Sunday. First and foremost we praise God that Christ rose from the dead making our salvation and celebration possible. All three services were well attended, with only trouble seating everyone in the 10:45 service. The production team led by Mark Colvin was awesome really setting the stage for a great service. The praise team also hit a home run as well as all those on the welcome team. There were 7 who either accepted Christ for the first time or got reassurance of their salvation for which we praise God. We also found out that our little lunchroom can allow our church to grow to 350 on an average Sunday. For that we are grateful! If you subtract all the volunteers who stayed for two services and some for three we officially had 256 in church! Praise God for allowing our church to expand the ministry to so many of the wonderful people of our community. Also, hats off to the Easter Egg Layers. Or .... um... hiders. The kids had a blast! Today I will sit down and write thank you notes all day. What an honor to know that our team pulled together and set records that will someday, by God's grace by tomorrow's standards.
