A little boy was sick on Palm Sunday and stayed home from church with his mother. His father returned from church holding a palm branch.
The little boy was curious and asked, "Why do you have that palm branch, dad"
"You see, when Jesus came into town, everyone waved Palm Branches to honor him, so we got Palm Branches today."
The little boy replied, " Aw Shucks! The one Sunday I miss is the Sunday that Jesus shows up!"
Things come up from time to time in all of our lives that may keep us out of church on occasion, but I hate missing church. The Psalmist exclaimed how happy he was when it was time to “go into the house of the Lord!” Don’t take a chance on missing out!
See you Sunday!

Ladies Bible Study
- Beth Moore "Believing God" continues this Sunday at 9am
Based on Isaiah 43:10, Beth explores what it means not only "to believe in God" but "to believe Him." The bride of Jesus Christ in our generation is nearly paralyzed by unbelief. God is calling His bride to a fresh and lavish anointing of faith. Through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others as examples of persons who believed God, Beth encourages women to deepen their own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him.
