Christ Is Risen!  He Is Risen Indeed! 

It was a beautiful Easter Sunday in our Sanctuary. Thanks to everyone who donated the Spring flowers and to the Altar Guild members for preparing an exquisite display. 

What a wonderful display as The Old Rugged Cross bloomed with the beauty of the Easter Celebration of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection! Hallelujah!
