Weekly Update

 Sunday, April 16, 2017

Chapel Family,

I am so excited for our upcoming Easter services this weekend. I hope you can join us as we celebrate the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ. We are also having a Good Friday service on Friday night at 7pm.

This will be a good opportunity to have our hearts focused on what Jesus went through as He gave His life for us on the Cross.

If you are traveling, be safe and enjoy the weekend with family and friends.

Remember, “He has risen!"

God Bless.
Derek
