Worship Bulletin - April 27, 2014


Christ is risen!  The season of Easter marks the time between Jesus’ resurrection and his ascension – during which the disciples came to understand the purpose of Jesus’ ministry and his identity.  Join with us to celebrate the wonders of Christ’s resurrection, and what it means for the resurrection life of the Church!

Riverview Photo Book Riverview Estates is celebrating 50 years of ministry in 2014! To celebrate they are putting together a new photo-book for their community, but they need OUR help to make it a success. On May 10, from 10AM to 5PM, Riverview is looking for volunteers to help check people in for their sittings. The job is easy, and the benefit for Riverview is HUGE. So please, sign up for an hour or two - and bring a friend to be your partner!

In addition, you may reserve a slot for your OWN sitting!  You’ll be able to say if you want your picture to appear in the book or not, but either way you will receive a photo (with the option to order a package, of course).  If Riverview registers 200 sittings, their photo-book becomes hard-bound.
