COVID-19 Update – April 8, 2020

Dear Friends,

“Death has been swallowed up in victory…thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15)

While the outward celebration of Easter will be on the quiet side this year, let us magnify the true Easter message that Jesus has risen and so will all who believe in him!

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, we worship you as our living Savior, who conquered our enemies of sin, death and the devil. We joyfully praise you for your resurrection proclaims to me and all believers the forgiveness of sins and peace through your victory. To you be honor and glory. Amen.
