April 2023

Pastor Ron Milne

Do you ever feel beat down? Worn Out? Just . . . tired? God calls us to times of rest and restoration. The Holy Spirit within us has power – the same power that raised Christ from the dead. He makes you whole again, and He energizes you as you seek to obey Jesus. Often it starts with a sincere time of humble prayer and resting in the love of God. You are in Christ. You are loved. If God is for you, who can be against you? Does all the rest of the difficulties even compare to what God has in store for you?

The message of Easter is a message of HOPE! Never despair; look up. Let God lift you up. Jesus is risen! He leads you in victorious celebration. Follow Him one step at a time. Be encouraged and then encourage others.
In Christ, Pastor Ron

First and foremost, as we enter this Easter season, we are reminded of the greatest sacrifice that Jesus made for us.
He died and rose again so that we may LIVE!

We are excited to announce that our "GREAT CLEAN OUT" phase is complete!
Some work to various kitchen areas will be finished soon as well.
Thank you for your continued patience.

The CDC now begins a heavy focus on curriculum, training, opening new classroom areas,
and can you believe- prepping for Pre-k Graduation & SUMMER CAMP?! (Among a myriad of other things!!)
As always, we welcome you to visit us anytime and appreciate continued prayers for our team-
we need them ALL!
