The 60 voice Freeland Community Choir will present it’s Easter Cantata, Hallelujah! What a Savior! on Sunday, April 15th at 7:00 PM at CUMC. There will be a free will offering taken to support the group so that they can present future concerts. We always have a fellowship time afterwards, so we would appreciate finger foods for the social time. The concert will also be presented the same day at 3:00 PM at St. Johns Reformed United Church of Christ, 98 Washington Street, Freeland. An encore performance will be given on Sunday, April 22 at Faith United Church of Christ, 21 Faith Drive, Hazleton. Faith Unite Church of Christ is located behind Independence Toyota.

The Piano that is in Heidi’s office is looking for a good home! If you are interested, please see Jacque. It is a Kimball spinet and would need to be tuned after moving it.

Sisters: What time is it? Where did all the time go? Does time really fly when you’re having fun? Maybe we think about time so much because there never seems to be enough of it. Maybe there’s only one question we need to ask. What am I doing with my time? Simple question? Easy answer? It’s time you found out. In this 5-part series, Time of Your Life, Andy Stanley will help you discover that answer. Don’t waste another second. Starting on April 17th, at 10:00 am every Thursday. Please join us!
