   Wow, your visiting our web site. We don't take that for granted and we are honored your here. But wanted to take a moment and just give you a thought. We have three holidays coming up, Easter, Memorial Day and Mothers Day. Each of them are very special but here's the thought. Easter, Jesus gave His life shedding His blood for the forgiveness of sins and rose from the dead on the third day to set us free from the bondage of sin. Memorial day thousands and thousands of men and women gave their lives, shedding their blood for our freedom from the bondage of oppression and granting us the freedoms we have and take for granted at times. In the middle is a day to Mothers. Mother's who lost their sons and daughters in war including Mary who was there when they crucified her son Jesus. Earthly freedom came by the blood of mankind, Heaven and the freedom from the curse of sin comes from the blood of Jesus and in between are all the mothers who suffered the loss of their children. Without Easter the other two have little value but because of Easter, freedom and our mothers are priceless. Thank God for this great country, for all who have given all for it, for our Mothers who have shaped us and most of all to Jesus who has provided all of this and our salvation as well.

                                            God Bless,

                                                      Pastor Wayne Godwin
