Easter Worship

Is this an idle tale or a deep, deep truth? Pastor Kay will consider that question. At the conclusion of the service, all who are interested may come forward to join the Chancel Choir in the singing of “The Hallelujah Chorus.” A special offering will also be taken for Good Neighbor Emergency Assistance.
