"Hosanna!" the crowds shout in praise for Jesus. yet, by the end of the week some of them were shouting "Crucify Him!" When life is going well, we may easily praise God. But what about when suffering and hardship comes? Do we turn away from God in those times? This Sunday we celebrate Palm Sunday with our message titled, "Welcome Your Crucified King" based on John 12:12-19 and John 19:16b-22.Altar Flowers are in celebration of Katrina Elam's Birthday!
Thank you for your kinds words, cards and support during the recent passing of Colleen's mom, Valarah Cook. Special thank you to Pastor Chris for the time of prayer at her bedside.
