On this day, in particular, we celebrate a hope that cannot be dampened regardless of how much rain falls.
We are so glad you have chosen to join us for the celebration. We are praying that God will grant you eyes to see His goodness and ears to hear the message of Christ's resurrection from the dead. Like the women at the tomb to whom the angel first relayed the message, we are praying that we will leave today with "great joy" in our hearts. He is risen!
