All are welcome to worship with us as we remember Christ’s passion and death leading up to the celebration of His glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.
One of our pastor’s described Holy Week and Easter as a complete, balanced meal. Don’t just come for the dessert on Easter Sunday. You’ll miss out on the nourishment provided by the meat and potatoes of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.
Remember to register to attend any or all of these worship services as attendance capacity is limited.

The Youth are providing “To Go” Breakfast Bags containing a warm Sausage, Egg, Cheese and Potato Casserole (Gluten Free) and a muffin. This takes the place of the usual Easter Morning Breakfast they provide for a Free-Will Donation. Your donation is still welcome as proceeds help send the kids to church camp and to do other special youth activities this summer.
The Men’s Ministry will be contacting you by March 25 through the information we have in our directory to find out if you would like either or both of these things. Members who haven’t been contacted can contact Miss Heather Heather@lord-of-love.org or call the office on Friday, March 26th(402-293-4926) to participate.
