We are so thankful for how God is providing for Jessica! Habitat for Humanity is putting an offer on a townhouse for her. So now it is time for us to step up!
We need to help her earn "sweat equity" hours. The main way we can do this is through volunteering at the ReStore in Leesburg. They will also have a couple of construction jobs available in May but details are not yet available.
First step in volunteering is to get trained. Maybe some of you have already done that step. But if you have not yet been trained then go to this website and register for an upcoming training time:
When you volunteer you'll fill out the form found at this link and give it to Habitat Humanity:
Let me know if you have any questions.

The Smith's are graciously opening up their home and property to us for a wonderful time together to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. We hope to see everyone there on April 21.
Our faith is built on the historical fact that Jesus was dead and then on the third day his dead heart began to beat again. His lungs were filled again with air. He literally walked out of that tomb.
As Andrew Peterson so eloquently put it:
So crown Him the Lord of Life
Crown Him the Lord of Love
Crown Him the Lord of All
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats
I'm so excited to be with you all on Resurrection Sunday as we celebrate his resurrection and our new life!
Here are the specifics you need to know:
- Location: 40755 Carper Ln., Paeonian Springs, VA 20129
- Times: 10:30am to 2:00pm (lunch included)
Order of events:
- 10:30am - Fellowship, worship, teaching (childcare for Kindergarten and under only)
- Noon - Lunch for everyone. Food will be provided. Everyone bring a dessert to share with 8-10
- 1pm - Family chat and planned kids activities (see below)
After lunch we want to leave time to talk together in detail about the significant changes that are coming to our church. God has been working on all of the leaders in these changes and we are encouraged by the amazing unity and passion he has brought. Most of the details are known to most of you but this will be a chance for us to share and ask questions.
During the Family Chat the older youth are planning and leading age appropriate activities for the kids. We are planning an Egg Hunt, some games, and the bouncy house that was given to us last year.
I hope that you can attend all of these activities but feel free to attend just a portion if your schedule does not allow it.
