“We are Witnesses”
UNIFIED WORSHIP – NEXT SUNDAY APRIL 14   10:00 AM IN SANCTUARY Everyone (9 and 11 worshippers note: 10:00 worship time) is invited to this special musical blessing to usher us into HOLY WEEK.



When something good occurred, a friend always said, “Give God the Credit!”  His reminder helped us remember to name Jesus Christ as the author of all blessings.
 
You can Give God the Credit by sending words that describe or name something God has removed from your life, healed in your, given you hope in or released you from.

Just as the stone rolled away, God has given you new life! Send your “anonymous” words of freedom & praise to ldempsey@cokeschapel.org or drop in offering plate.   Your “word” will be written on stones and be part of Easter morning worship as together we give worship, giving God the credit for our new life found in Christ! Deadline is Tuesday, April 16, so send them in now!

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) is March 31, 2019.
 
For more than 50 years, congregations have taken part in UMCOR Sunday, laying the foundation for a ministry of relief and hope. Donations through this offering cover our cost of doing business. This allows 100% of all other giving to be used on the projects our donors specify, rather than in administrative or fundraising costs.
UMCOR does not receive United Methodist World Service or apportionment funds, so without your offerings, UMCOR would not exist.
