Big Events in Early April
There are several, great events on the horizon for our church that we wanted to put in one place.
On Tuesday night (3/31), we are hosting our third Chick-fil-a Family Night. These have been great events to serve the community and let them know who we are. We invite you to come out and help as kids come to work through the craft we are organizing. Through this, we get great opportunities to meet people and speak about the church.
Our Good Friday Service is this Friday (4/3) at 7:00pm at New City Fellowship. They are located at 200 Prince Edward Street, Fredericksburg VA. Several local church are gathering for this combined service: Hope of Christ, New Life in Christ, Bethel OPC, New City Fellowship, and Evident Grace. Leonard Bailey, pastor of Hope of Christ, and Gordon will be administering the Lord’s Supper. We hope you are able to join us for this time.
Then Saturday morning (4/4) is the annual 5K Rabbit Run, 1 Mile Hop, and ¼ Mile Bunny Chase that Young Lives hosts. You can still register to run in it. If you don’t want to run, we wanted to let you know that Young Lives is always looking for volunteers to serve during the time. You can contact Sarah Middleton if you are interested or you can just show up and support the many families and individuals that will be running in it. More information can be found on their Facebook page.
This coming Sunday (4/5) is Easter Sunday. It is one of the most attended Sundays of the year. Families who never attend church the rest of the year, show up on Easter Sunday. This week is a great opportunity for you to invite friends, neighbors, coworkers, and people you interact with to our church this week. In the service, we be looking to understand better what love is as we celebrate Easter Sunday together.
We also want to make you aware of a church-wide town-hall/potluck we are having on 4/12 (Sunday), after our worship service. As we mentioned at our last gathering, we desire these to be quarterly get togethers to be two-fold. We want to take some time to celebrate the incredible things God has enabled for our church. We also want to also talk about some of the things that are on the horizon for us as we look to the next quarter specifically and the rest of 2015 in general. These are great times to take a pulse of where we are and what is going on for our church. We would love for everyone that is able to be present. Here is a sign-up for the potluck side of the gathering.
