All Souls Community Church of West Michigan

April 1, 2018 – It Is A New Day! Let Us Rejoice! Today Easter will be celebrated in various churches across the world. My sermon is based on a conversation with a dear friend and born-again Christian, she said the promise of Jesus is that with each new morning comes as a New Day in the Lord. It is the hope found in new beginnings and with each daybreak, we begin again, to start over and try once more; where “Everything is Possible.” We will also have a special celebration; a Naming Ceremony for one of our young people. Come Celebrate with Us! Rev. Colleen Squires

Amigas y Amigos (Friends), Channel 13 is going to film at our Easter Service this Sunday, 4/1 @ 2 p.m.. We're a small group so we could use some additional supporters among us. Please join us for our Easter Service & Community Dinner immediately afterward. They will also be looking to talk to a few people why they think "Sanctuary for All of God's Creation" is important in our community. I've set up an event. We are an Immigrant Welcoming, Open & Affirming, Sanctuary Church. Our services are bilingual and so is our bulletin. Please join us. No one will be on camera that does not want to be. Share the post, invite friends and bring your familias. Come check us out and let's send a strong message that our village supports our global sisters and brothers.
