     We are just a few weeks away from “Pearl River Alive.”  Pearl River Alive will focus on those of Pearl River County and the surrounding area coming to know Jesus Christ in salvation.

     We need to be about inviting our family, friends, and neighbors.  Imagine what God will do if we do our part.  As you invite them to come with you, be much in prayer as the Holy Spirit ministers in their hearts.    

     Pray that God will open the portals of Heaven and pour His Spirit out upon Pearl River County and also upon Our Church and us individually.

 

 

 

 

Music Ministry

 

As we are approaching one of the most exciting times in Christian history, I look back and remember some of the most inspirational Easters that I have been a part of, and you know what?  It seems that all of them were very special.  In 51 years in the ministry I have been involved in many, many Easter celebrations, and I believe all of them were very special.  The Easter season has always been a big time of celebration the death, burial, and most of all the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus.  This year it is no different.  It is a fantastic time for all Christians.  I wish everyone could experience the great thing that God has done for us.  And then accept Him as Savior.  Until someone does this, Easter will only be a Sunday holiday.  Thank God for Easter and what it means to His children.  God Bless us all!!

Sunday School

 

     Two of the most celebrated times of the year in Christian Life are Christmas and Easter. Churches fill to capacity with people eager to honor and give thanks to our Savior on His birthday and the day of His Resurrection.  Easter is such a wonderful time of year.  It reminds us of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for us, and encourages us with the truth that Jesus rose from the dead and is ALIVE FOREVER!

Jesus told His disciples in John 14:19, " Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more: but ye see me, because I live, ye shall live also."

As His followers, we are promised LIFE!  LIVE!  Help teach others about the life-giving love of God through the Death and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ!

Please join us for Sunday School at 10 a.m. this Sunday.  God bless you this Easter and always!
