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!
This is a video of one of the pieces of equipment we want to install.. Notice the ages of the people using it. our goal is to build a playground that will be a blessing to our church and the community. it's within our reach!! we are actively writing grants and seeking funding. please talk to your friends and neighbors and ask them to help support this very worthwhile project!!! our goal is to install at least some play equipment and a trail this summer. thank you and god bless you!!

We are always excited to see new folks at Country Chapel! We are a growing family and maybe this is the right time to come and see what joy and unconditional love is really like. We are NOT a place filled with 'perfect' people but we ARE a family of believing friends that feel Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! -Pastor Rick
