Good Friday Solemn Communion Service

Everything is about Jesus’ death and resurrection. Jesus dies on Good Friday
to pay for all sin – every sin is forgiven and it ours for the asking!
On Good Friday, we consider the death of Jesus for our sins and
receive his real presence in the mystery of body and blood, bread and wine.

Easter Sunday Celebration Service

Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday gives proof that we can trust what he says
and gives us power to live because we too will someday rise again just as he did!
Through faith in Christ, we enjoy the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everylasting!
By-the-way, today all the Alleluias (missing during Lent) return!
