Spring is in the air! Spring is such a glorious time! The cold and barrenness of winter gives way to the new life of spring, trees begin to bud, flowers begin to blossom, the air is filled with the songs of birds. Everywhere there is life springing up. It seems so fitting that springtime follows Easter. The Easter miracle is not just a symbol of new life, it is also the power to find love and new life in a risen Lord. Past failures are forgiven, guilt and shame are washed away. Our relationships are made new with God and with others. Power for living is found in God's loving grace, as we open our lives to God's plan and purpose for our lives. Open your heart and life to God's amazing love!
(Verse of the week)
Jesus said--I have come that they might have life, and have life abundantly!
(Prayer of the week)
Almighty and Loving God, thank you your great love and the promise of new life found in Jesus. Help me to open my life to new strength and life found in your amazing love. Thank you for the gift of today. And may my life touch others with love like a candle in the night. Amen.
Blessings -Pastor TJ

It is not how much you do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.
