14 Apr The Momentum of Easter Never Ends
Easter never ends! We celebrate the resurrection every time we gather for worship, and we’ll do it again this Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.
We have a seasoned national speaker at CIL this Sunday. Scott Thomas has an effective ministry to the body of Christ (read details below) and will share his gift of teaching with us this Sunday. Come ready to think and receive!
I am so impressed by what we offer for CIL’s children and teenagers. If you are connected to a child or teenager, get them involved in what we offer. If you know someone raising a minor, let them know CIL is ready to link arms with them in their crucial work.
I love serving Jesus with you!

Three Streams School of Theology is offering Systematic Theology 1 on Monday mornings from 10:00 until noon beginning April 24th! In this 12-week course, we’ll learn the key concepts in Christian doctrine, think theologically, and make the connection between doctrine and practice in our everyday lives. This class is a great entry point into the conversation about what Christians believe and is open to all.
