Sunday, April 1st – Easter!

  • 9:30 a.m. – Rev. Dr. Bau Dang’s sermon will be “The Unbelievable Truth” using the Scripture 1 Corinthians 15:1-11.

  • 11:30 a.m. – Contemporary Bilingual English/Vietnamese Worship (not meeting this Sunday, will attend 9:30 worship)
  • 10:45 a.m. – Easter Brunch Fundraiser in Acker Hall. The Menu will be baked chicken with gravy, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, breakfast sausage, green beans & rolls.  Suggested donation $5.00 per person. Donations will go towards Tereise Tosi’s airfare to travel with her softball team to South Carolina in July.  We are asking our church family for some help through the brunch, as we just do not have it in our budget.  We’re simply asking for a small helping hand. Whatever we can get from the brunch will surely help a lot.  Thank you, Toné & Barbara Tosi
  • 7:30 p.m. – Vietnamese  Easter Celebration Worship in the Chapel.
