Traveling with the Psalmist to the Foot of the Cross - Now through April 19

The book of Psalms is full of the hymns of the church of king David’s day. Much like our songs
today some speak of great joy and celebration while others mourn mankind’s tragic condition.
The Penitential Psalms express sorrow over our brokenness and a plea for deliverance.
 
Join fellow Christians from our area as we look at a different Penitential Psalm each week to prepare our hearts so that we can better appreciate the great deliverance which is ours on Easter!
 
Each service will begin at noon and be followed by a lunch served at 12:30. The offering
collected will go to the FAMA Assistance Fund which helps our neighbors with a utility
disconnect notice keep the electric on.
