Welcome to Community Church! Today, Pastor Dave helps us to continue reflecting on this Lenten season as we focus on the cross and our understanding of it.
This Evening, our service will focus on sharing updates from the prayer conference this past week and spending time in prayer together. May God bless our worship of Him today!

MINISTRY INFO & REQUESTED ANNOUNCEMENTS
Spring Craft Fair at Community Church on April 29, 9 AM to 3 PM.

Plus vendors from Scenty, Avon, Simply Tastefull, and Norwex. Plan to come by and browse – invite your family, friends & coworkers!
Please Pray For The Persecuted: Christians in many countries have become refugees. A refugee had paid a smuggler to take his son from Syria to Europe where he would be safe. He later learned that his son had died on the journey. Broken hearted, the father was ready to commit suicide. He was invited to the church where, by God’s grace, he responded to the gospel and came to Christ weeping, “out of death there is new life.” Pray for God’s protection for all the persecuted.
