Easter week, passion week, is always filled with excitement and expectancy of God working in His people. Maybe it’s brought on by the warming weather, budding landscapes, and of course the hope we have in the resurrection power of Jesus. Top all of that off with three outreach events to our community and we have a great formula for God to show us His wonder and glory.
I hope you will participate in these events. We will seek to embrace our town with God’s love by serving others and encouraging our community to look to Jesus. We never go wrong when we Love Our Neighbor and Share Christ!
Easter Sunday services will be filled with celebration as we rejoice as God’s people that Jesus is alive! Invite your family, friends, and others to join us at the Sunrise Worship Service at 7 am or the Easter Worship Celebration at 10:30 am. Both will be a beautiful way to gather with the First Family to worship King Jesus.
He is Risen!
RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Chicken Rice Dish
1 dead, raw, naked chicken
3 eggs (chicken eggs)
1 Hillshire sausage
1/2 bunch of celery
1/2 C. of onions, chopped
Black pepper— a lot
Salt— depends on your blood pressure
1 1/4 C. Uncle Ben’s rice
Boil dead, raw, naked chicken for 45 minutes and eggs for 15 minutes. Cut up chicken, after it cools because if you don’t, it burns your fingers. Put 2 1/2 C. of water that you boiled chicken with and chicken, sausage, celery, onions, eggs, pepper, salt, and rice into pot. Bring to boil, turn down to low-medium and cover. Let cook for 25 minutes without taking top off. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
