NO YOUTH GROUP THIS WEEK OR NEXT!
We will postpone our Youth Group meetings for Palm Sunday and Easter. Take this time to enjoy the many other activities going on in our church!
 
YOUR HELP NEEDED FOR EASTER
As we walk this last few steps of Lent, my prayer is that through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we have been freed from the many places of pain or bondage that destroy our spirit and life. In preparation for Easter Sunday, I invite you to send a word or a short statement of fewer than 10 words that reflects what Christ has done for you. On Easter morning your word will be included in our worship celebration! (No identities revealed!). What has Jesus Christ lifted from, removed or healed in your life? (i.e. Sorrow, loss, fear, addiction, loneliness, etc.).  Deadline for sending words, Mon April 10.
 
LOVE MUSIC?  LOVE OUR CHOIR?
Join us (and bring a friend) at 5:00 pm on Sunday the3 9th in the Sanctuary for our Easter Cantata – “Christ is Risen” by the Celebration Singers.

FRESH FLOWERS FOR THE CROSS

FOR MEMORIAL DAY
Our cemetery guy (Thom McCague) will need a little assistance after April 11th as he is finally going to have his knee replaced. If anyone would like to help out with a little clean up (raking and sweeping) for our upcoming Memorial Day Sunday service it would be greatly appreciated.
 
VACATION?

Cokes Chapel has several ways to accomplish this. You can give online through our website, www.cokeschapel.org which links you to Pay Pal, by downloading our Church App on your smartphone or tablet or by simply mailing your check to the church office. Remember, our church depends on all of us to continue normal operations, grow our church and to support all our important Outreach Ministries.
