~ 7:30 p.m. Communion Service for adults (Church Sanctuary)
This is an opportunity to come to the table with the Lord – to feel His presence, to gain His help and power in your personal efforts to grow spiritually, and to be strengthened by Him in a life of goodness and truth.

Easter Sunday, April 17
~ 11:00 a.m. Easter Festival Service (Auditorium)
This service celebrates the Lord’s rising on Easter morning into full divine power—the power to help people of all faiths and cultures make life choices that they truly care about. “All power has been given to Me in heaven and on earth….” Our festival service for families features an Easter Choir and a floral procession in which people are welcome to bring flowers as an offering for the occasion. The spiritual message is a combined talk for children and adults.
Following the service donated flowers/plants will be distributed to our friends living in nursing homes, assisted living or those who may be homebound. You may also bring a donation of non-perishable food items for the Northfield Township Food Pantry.
