E-Blast Saturday March 30, 2024

Christ is alive! Let Christians sing.  

His cross stands empty to the sky!

Let streets and homes with praises ring. 

His love in death shall never die.

Christ is alive and comes to bring

Good news to this and every age,

til earth and all creation ring

with joy, justice, love, and praise!

Brian Wren UMH 318
