 What a surprise to find an empty parking lot at Alta Woods Palm Sunday morning!  Most of you already know severe storms followed by power outages forced cancellation of our Easter musical One Day.  For now, the proposed new date is April 28 at 11 am.  


Tomorrow, Apr 16, JOY Singers are off to Briarhill Nursing Home, leaving AWBC at 9:30 am; singing at 10. Join us to share the love of Jesus with these precious residents and staff. 

 Participating in the State Senior Adult Choir Festival is always a highlight of JOY Singers’ choir year. This year FBC Richland is slated to host this wonderful event on Tuesday, May 7.  It will be a fantastic time to acknowledge the contributions of our senior saints not just at Alta Woods, but across Mississippi .  Non-participating listeners are welcome to attend. 

 He’s alive!  Easter changes everything.  The angel said to the women, “He isn’t here, because he’s been raised from the dead, just as he said.  Come see the place where they laid him.” Matthew 28:6.  Easter is the time all Christians around the world remember how Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day.  Make every effort to celebrate with us Resurrection Sunday, and bring a friend or loved one!

   Looking ahead …
