This has been some kind of Michigan Spring hasn't it?  In fact, it's already been so dreary and cold that my wife and I had to take a quick trip south to Nashville, Tennessee just to see if it was cold down there too!  It wasn't, it was absolutely beautiful and the Redbud trees were all out in full bloom!  Well, it was just the inspiration that we needed!  In between the Easter Series and our next Outreach messages for meeting the neighbors,we thought we'd try to inspire a little Spring fever and do some house cleaning!

Now, don't get me wrong, I love having a clean house, but I just have such a hard time giving up a beautiful warm spring day to go around a great house that seems like everything is already good.  Then, we intentionally spend time tearing things apart so we can 'really clean' places where we seldom go!...  Well, that is getting a little off the subject...

Our sermon this week will be about some 'spring cleaning' that Jesus actually did at the Temple in Jerusalem!  Yes, we will go there.  I hope you will come this week for our Spring message right before we begin 'I Love My Church' next week!  Service is at 10am and you are invited!


Beginning May 19th Country Chapel will be starting something brand new...almost

We continue into this exciting New Year with great expectations for what God is doing at Country Chapel. In a year that has a lot of questions for where the United Methodist Church is going. We are standing firm on what God is already doing and where He is taking us! The promise of touching our neighbors in a real way, just to say Hi... then,  the prospect of an accessible/ all inclusive playground, in our own back yard!  The plans for a new Hospitality Center (kitchen) are moving forward too! Come join Us!
