Easter Sunday
April 5, 2015
On the eve of the Passover feast, Jesus gathered his
disciples for what would be an uncomfortable night.
John 13 tells of betrayal, suffering, and confusion filling
the hearts and minds of his friends. In that anxious
moment, Jesus modeled love tangibly through basin,
water, and bread. The night would proceed with
broken promises, sleepy prayers and a screeching
rooster. On Maundy Thursday, we will relive the
ancient story as 21st century disciples. Using a wash
basin, water, and bread we’ll seek to follow Jesus
through the uncomfortable night, in hopes of
experiencing anew what lies on the other side.

Gifts of Hope
for The Homeless
We are collecting diapers, pull-ups—
size 5+ and larger, wipes and travel/
small size toiletries. The diapers and
wipes will be given to a family whose
children are autistic, living at The Salvation Army. The
small size toiletries will be used by the Salvation Army
PACEM and Word of Faith to share with the many
homeless in our local communities. A new toothbrush,
toothpaste, bar of soap, shampoo, deodorant, women’s personal hygiene products are all small but very
effective means of improving the quality of life many
of our neighbors are experiencing. Collection boxes are
located in the Welcome area throughout March.

Basement Revitalization Facts
A collection of design ideas were taken from a handful of local churches which yielded
new traffic patterns, increased functionality and useable space, improved warmth and
brightness, and a vibrant color scheme.
The Basement area is approximately 4500 sf including four classrooms, one office, men’s
and women’s bathrooms, elevator access, and a full kitchen.
Project Budget was $175,000

Completed construction in late June 2013
Four companies owned and operated by Chestnut Grovians helped create the
JES Electric — Martin Shifflett
