We worship together indoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
April 4, 2021
This is the biggie!
Jesus was alive, was killed and REALLY did die on the cross
HE ROSE AGAIN! HE IS ALIVE!
That is WHY we worship Him today!
Just as Paul, who saw the risen Christ, reminds us that he prayed for his people, so we too, want to pray for you.
So, let us pray for you. Just send an email to us and we will add our online prayer list.
We know some folks are still cautious about meeting in person and prefer to worship the Lord in the safety of their homes. This is why we prepare these online worship pages for you.
We will continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship. Even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.
Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer or just chat/connect.
UPDATE - Please comment down below and we will respond. Let us know how we can help and if we have blessed you with this on-line worship. Thanks!

(Sunday School on Thursday Nights).
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Mrs. Denise prays and sings with the children (online, of course) then tells the story of Jesus Jesus rising from the dead.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Pastor Harvey continued a tradition that Bishop William Cruver started YEARS ago; tell the story of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus and His glorious resurrection with some help from little ones in our church.
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget you can comment below about anything that we can help you with or send us a Facebook message on the Facebook message app.
You can also use the "comments below to start any conversation with us.

And Now It's Time to Worship Christ
Christ the Lord is Risen Today
Artist: Islington Baptist Church
Were you There?
Artist: Johnny Cash and family
Because He Lives
Artist: (Our Own) Alfredo Rodriguez
After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
I Corinthians 15:12-28
The Resurrection of the Dead
I Corinthians 15:12-28
12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised;
14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, your faith also is in vain.
15 Moreover, we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.
16 For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised;
17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.
18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
19 If we have hoped in Christ only in this life, we are of all people most to be pitied.
The Order of Resurrection
20 But the fact is, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep.
21 For since by a man death came, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming,
24 then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to our God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.
25 For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death.
27 For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is clear that this excludes the Father who put all things in subjection to Him.
28 When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.
Let's Go Find a Miracle...
