Note Burning Service - Report

We were treated to good worship music from the praise band and the adult choir during the dedication of the Christian Life Center, and the celebration for paying off the mortgage. Rev. Eric Lane speaking at CLC dedicationAn emotional Rev. Eric Lane, our former pastor who served during the time of the building progect from beginning to end, spoke during the service. The 70 people in attendance then walked outside to symbolically throw copies of the "note" onto a fire. Though it had been raining earlier, there was plenty of sunshine as we tossed the papers into the flames. Back in the Christian Life Center, we shared some wonderful food while fellowshiping with one another. It was a wonderful time of worship, praise, and thankfulness to our Lord, and to all those who helped make this moment possible.

We will have a Note Burning Service on Sunday, May 5th, 2019 at 3:00 pm. to celebrate paying off the Christian Life Center mortgage. The service will be held in the Christian Life Center, though the note burning will be done outside. Special guests will include former pastor Rev. Eric Lane (the only person to confirm at this point). We invite every one who helped with the construction of the CLC, and who helped us pay off the loan through their gifts or by purchasing items during any of our multiple fundraisers for this building project.

We ask that our current members bring finger foods and sweets to share after the service.

Thank you to every person who contributed over the years to this project. We hope to see you at the service.

"For God so loved the world that, he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 Happy Easter!
