Upcoming Events

April 13th Palm/Passion Sunday Today we are excited to be hosting and worshiping jointly with our friends Creede Baptist, here at 11AM. Today we observe “Palm/Passion” Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. Today, we mark both: 1) Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem and 2) his suffering and death that looms ahead on the cross of Good Friday. Elements of our service reflect both these themes. May our time together be joy-filled and bring glory to God! We especially thank our Youth and those who led and prepared them for their part in worship today! They will also be helping to lead the Good Friday Community service at 6PM. Worship note: This morning we continue with our weekly dramatic Lenten dialogue among various characters and Jesus – with all showing up in the crowd as Jesus makes his way into Jerusalem. This reflects the Gospel liturgy of the Palms from Matthew 21: 1-11.

Bible Study this Tuesday, April 15th Lenten Video and Discussion Series: We will be in the second segment of a 10 part video, study and discussion series led by N.T. Wright entitled “Simply Christian”. We meet at the Van Ry’s (by road to Creede Veterinary Clinic) at 6:30PM. Newcomers always welcome!

One Great Hour of Sharing Please be reminded that we will be receiving our One Great Hour of Sharing special mission offering during worship next Sunday. The last several Sunday's the Mission Outreach/Helping Hands ministry offered mission moments to promote our One Great Hour of Sharing special mission offering to be taken at Easter Sunday worship. OGHS “provides support to health, education, refugee, agricultural, and emergency relief initiatives in 138 countries, by working with local, national, and international partners. It is administered by Wider Church Ministries, Global Sharing of Resources along with partnering with numerous other denominations.

Sunday, April 27th Frontier/Rural Life Sunday and Blessing of the Animals. For the 8th year we will be featuring guest speakers in worship that day followed by the Blessing of the Animals in Creede following worship at 12:15 at Basham Park this year.
