Holy Week Services 2011

When a person knows the end is near—only the important surfaces. Impending death distills what is vital…So if you would know Christ ponder those last days. Hear the promise: Death has no power. Failure holds no prisoners. Fear has no hold of us. God has come to show us that in dying we find what is essential. God, in Jesus, unleashes power for new life!

Come and walk with Jesus into what is essential in our lives, in our world…
