Happy Resurrectoin Sunday

For many, this is the first Resurrection Sunday in a while since we've been in our building. For all, services were made available in person and online. It's our prayer that everyone enjoys time with family and friends, that there will be peace, and that everyone stays safe. We can't forget that He arose with all power in His Hands. We thank God for the Resurrection, and the victory that came with it. Hallelujah!
